This year's Illinois Deer & Turkey Expo was a great show!  For those of you who were not able to attend the event I wanted to share some more photos on what you missed. This was our first year having a large 10 x 20 booth for and it was a ton of fun meeting grassroots bow hunters like us. This year the show had:

370 plus booths
Lots of seminars
New Product display area
Venison Butchering Demos
Archery Range
Life-Sized Whitetail Deer Skeleton
Live Animals – Yes my son and I got a photo with a bear cub!
Outdoor Photo Contest
A ton of Deer Mounts

Here are some of my favorite photos:

The booth was set up early and ready to go with time to spare.

It did not take long for the crowds to start rolling in!

We had a 115 inch shed antler in the booth for everyone to check out.

More big sheds.

When Justin was not looking I should have sold his bow, I had about 10 chances to sell it! You think he would have noticed?

As always our long-time friend was on hand to help kids shoot a bow!

We're always giving away FREE gear from out sponsors each month - make sure you sign up -

Our good friend Mark Luster with Legends of the Fall stopped in to say HI!

Go figure we had to be right next to the Fudge booth! Yes, we were her best customer.

This was my favorite T-Shirt - If anyone knows who this is tell her call me at my office - 847-659-8200  to receive a  free ladies T-shirt.
