Western Hunting and Conservation Expo
The Hunt Expo of 2020 was a new and exciting experience for us here at Nimrod Outdoors. We teamed up with one of our partners, SneekTec, and had a booth at the expo. It was a great adventure and one we would love to do again next year.
If you don’t know about SneekTec you should look them up. Here is a link to their website and social media pages (Facebook and Instagram). We recently did a product review of the Sneekboot from SneekTec here on our blog and if you read it click the link and give it a read. These boot have so many benefits and some of them are not even hunting related.
We got in on Wednesday and were able to set up the booth and get everything ready for the big show to open on Thursday morning. The Western Hunting and Conservation Expo is one of the biggest hunting shows in the Western United States and draws more the 60K people. There is everything from Guides and Outfitters (from Alaska to Africa) there so you can book hunts. They have opportunities to enter drawings for over 200 tags (Big Game Animals) you can apply for and have as good of odds of drawing one of these tags as the next guy. There are tons of exhibitors from new products on the market to old favorites that are proven. This is one show that everyone that is at all interested in Western Hunting should attend at least once. Incorporated with the Expo there is the NASP – National Archery in the Schools Program archery shoot. Kids from Elementary to High School compete against each other (in their respected levels) to see how shoots the stick and string the best. It is an event that is great to watch and be involves with.
The show ran from Thursday – Sunday and we had a great time talking to so many people at the booth. We did get out of the booth and visit with some great friends and see some of the other booths and picked up a few items we will be doing product reviews on. Skull Max, Creed Outdoors and Velvet are some we will be reviewing, so be watching for them to come out here on our blog, on our social media pages as well as our YouTube channel.
Our booth we shared with SneekTec seemed to be very busy over the 4 day event. It seemed like at the end of every day I was very tired and almost horse from talking to so many people. It was great to hear their stories and to share our stories with them. In the Booth we have my 2018 Utah Moose and the buck my Grandfather shot in 1934 (and 86 year old mount) that were great conversation pieces. We had all our new Nimrod Gear, 3 new shirt designs and 5 new hat designs for people to purchase along with the Sneekboot from SneekTec.
The show was an incredible experience and the opportunity to rub shoulders with some great people and chat with some old friends and introduce some new friends to Nimrod Outdoors and what we are all about was priceless. Our message of “getting the youth (and new hunters) into the outdoors” was well received and we hope we, along with each of you, can spread the word about the work we here at Nimrod Outdoors is trying to do. It is an event we will be back to next year. We look forward to seeing all of you there next year and hearing you’re hunting stories and telling ours.
