Hunting And Fishing Days
Krista Snodgrass with the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources explains why this event is unique. "National Hunting and Fishing Days is September 22 and 23rd at Stonewall Jackson Resort. The two day event is open to everyone and it is $5 for adults, $3 for children and those three and under get in free. It's two days of jam packed excitement. We have everything from the hog trough, which is a large aquarium, we will have presentations on that throughout the weekend, we have the outdoor youth challenge."
The kids just love that, but even if you don't have kids, there's plenty for you to do, and enjoy, too. You can get a taste of some wild game, pick up a muzzle loader and fire off a round, or get some tips on fly fishing. And if you don't want to "do" anything, that's ok, too.
"We also have the big buck display, trophy fish display. There are over 150 vendors with the latest hunting and fishing merchandise out there being part of our event." says Snodgrass.
Of course there will be plenty of seminars and events to keep anyone interested for the entire weekend, but this year there are two you won't want to miss.
"Two special people we have this year, its the best of both worlds we're calling it. We're have Tom Knapp doing a shotgun presentation and we're also having Byron Ferguson with his archery demonstration. The best of both worlds, for $5, there's nowhere else you can go and see these 2 guys give demonstrations like that." says Snodgrass.
Lots to do, not a lot of money to do it...that is the best of both worlds.
