Hunting And Fishing Show
Glen Jerrell with The WV Trophy Hunters explains, "This is the 26th year that we've held the show for the benefit of our exhibitors, hunting and fishing enthusiasts in the area, plus hunting, fishing and conservation organizations that benefit from our charitable donations."
And those donations add up, too...hundreds of thousands of dollars over the decades have gone to these groups.
"Each year the Trophy Hunters donates thousands of dollars to organizations that help fund wildlife projects, hunters education programs, and hunting and fishing projects throughout West Virginia. The Hunters Helping the Hungry is a great program that the DNR manages. The Archery in the Schools is a great program." says Jerrill.
You can get information on all these efforts at the West Virginia Hunting and Fishing Show, and you can also pick up cool stuff you only see on the internet or on TV. The goal, of course, is to get outside and experience nature, and wildlife, for yourself. That's the Trophy Hunter's goal, too.
"Some of the DNR projects we help with include the bear management study, it's a very successful program that's gathered a lot of data for DNR biologists, so they can help manage the black bear population." says Jerrill.
Been there, done that...and while you might not be able to crawl in a bear den, you can head out into the woods of West Virginia and try to find a bear yourself. If you get a chance, stop by the show, find our booth and say hi.
