Simply put, the Hunter & Outdoor Christmas Expo is the ultimate indoor experience for outdoorsmen and women. In addition to seeing and visiting with outdoor industry leaders offering the best firearms, optics, outfitter and guide services, hunting apparel and western lifestyle gear and clothing, those on hand can experience happenings that leave the senses tingling.
New features for the 2016 expo include a 3D pop-up range, skeet thrower and broken arrow tour with prize money going to the winners--all part of the MTN OPS Shootout-Ultimate Archery Experience. Attendees can also view and taste wild game cooking demonstrations, meet and greet outdoor and country music celebrities and enjoy acoustic, toe-tapping performances by Easton Corbin and Daryle Singletary on the Realtree Live Stage.
