For more than a decade the Mid-South Hunting and Fishing Extravaganza has served as the kick off event for the fall hunting and fishings seasons.
It's a three-day get together for area sportsmen to forget about the summer heat and humidity and talk about hunting, fishing, camping and the multitude of other fall outdoor activities within easy driving distance of the Memphis area.
The outdoor showcase will be rolled out Aug. 8-10 at Agricenter International in Memphis. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for youths.
As promised, this one will touch a lot of outdoor bases, such as competitive duck calling and a big buck contest. And, or course, we'll have the trout tank and vendors from not only the Mid-South, but across the nation.
The duck calling competition will be held Aug. 10 at 12:30 p.m.
Award-winning taxidermist Jody Shults will conduct the annual Big Buck Contest.
This year's contest winners will be decided by popular vote. That means show visitors will be part of the decision-making process.
And, of course, there will be 15-plus hours of seminars, hundreds of exhibitors and everything you'ull need for the hunting season and a live trout pond.
