New Elmwood All Outdoors Show

I received a press release from a friend of mine, Larry Dozard of LarrysFishingHole.com.  Larry's involved in a new outdoor show that will be held near Peoria.  Here is what he sent to me.

New Elmwood AllOutdoors Show is March 6-7 in Elmwood, IL

Hunters and anglers will be happy to learn that a true outdoors show is returning to the Peoria-Canton-Galesburg area on March 6-7. Unlike too many shows that mix their message, the sole focus of the Elmwood AllOutdoors Show is fishing, hunting and the great outdoors. This new event will be held in the Elmwood High School and Grade School gymnasiums on Saturday, March 6 (9 a.m. to 5p.m.) and Sunday, March 7 (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.). Admission is $5 for adults and free for youngsters 13and under. Parking is free. Food and drink will be sold.

 We have filled 100 booths that feature a wide variety of outdoors-related products and services. Visit www.elmwoodalloutdoors.com to see an updated list of vendors and more.

In addition to those fine vendors, other highlights of the show include:

Big Buck Contest. For $10 hunters get two show passes and can have their trophy bucks measured by certified Boone and Crockett Club and Pope and Young Club measurers. Deer will be displayed and five top entries will win plaques. There will also be a random drawing for prizes among all who enter deer. So you don't need the biggest buck to go home a winner.

Fishing pond for youngsters courtesy of Herman Brothers Pond Management and the Elmwood Community Foundation. For $3 kids get 5 minutes of fun fishing. If you catch a trout and wish to take it home for dinner, we will clean and vacuum pack the trout for $2. Prizes will also be awarded for top catches.

Archery range for youngsters courtesy of the Illinois Bowfishers.

Seminars from Frank Hyla of Time on the Water TV show, bass angler Terry Brown of Wired2fish.com, crappie guides Todd Gessner and Steve Welch, DNR fisheries biologists Wayne Herndon, Rod Hilsabeck and Ken Russell, strip-mine bass experts Ron Boyer and Larry Dozard, catfish guide Matt Jones, turkey hunter Jerry Nicholson, food-plot expert Phil DeJarnatt and trophy deer hunter Marc Anthony.

Raffle for a unique $2,400 Twin Troller two-man fishing boat, plus many other items. Door prizes will also be awarded throughout the show.

Show sponsors are Farmers State Bank, Country Financial, Elmwood Insurance Agency, Inc., Brimfield Area Men's Club, Hoss's Hawg Bait, Herman Brothers Pond Management,  Elmwood Community Foundation, Farm Care Realty, Peoria Disposal Co., Camille's of Canton, Time on the Water Outdoors, PrairieStateOutdoors.com and Larry's Fishing Hole

All proceeds benefit the athletic programs and the students of Elmwood High School. So plan to join us March 6-7 in Elmwood.
