"No Show" in the West
We don't get much of this type of thing in the western or just the non-east part of the state. And that's market, I can only assume. But this time of year, such things are appreciated. From my experience back here (I lived in the East in general from 1996-2003) we get mostly mediocre gun shows and a couple of sport and travel expos, that, after going to once, even in the desperation of February, I'm not interested in returning to.
Even though the hook-N-Bullet society is naturally still more resident here, we have fewer people and less $$ and, essentially, these are marketing ventures. When in the East, I spent more time talking and thinking about the outdoors than doing it. In the East, you want to go bird hunting or whatever, so you buy a new, expensive gun. In the West, you tend to use what you have, being a more depressed region. Poverty doesn't inspire much for marketing budgets.
So we don't get many shows, but we have places to go. The fishing, at least in flowing water, isn't nearly as good. No way our rivers compare to the Juniata or Susquehanna. I'm not sure which side is considered home by the Center County limestoners. The lakes in the west are better. Not many shows about this, though. Not close enough to the Megalopolis.
