Annual Great Rockies Sportshow Brings the Great Outdoors to Helena
By angelamontana

The Great Rockies Sportshow in Helena is the largest presentation of fishing, hunting, boats, RVs, travel and outdoor products/services in the Helena region.
The Great Rockies Sportshow returns to Helena in 2014 with new features, outdoor fun and adventure.   The annual three day event is the largest presentation of fishing, hunting, boats, RVs, travel and outdoor products in Helena.   Not only can visitors buy outdoor-related products they can also book their next vacation to Alaska/Canada/Africa or buy a new boat, RV or ATV.   Door prizes include an Alaska fishing vacation.
Boats, RVs and Powersports are a big part of the Great Rockies Sportshow.  Meet with dealers, shop and compare a nice selection of boats in one place, saving you time and money
Lots of activities for the kids too.   Some of the weekend’s entertainment includes Doc Wild’s educational “Antler Antics”.  Doc Wild explores the courting behaviors of the deer family- whitetails, mule deer, elk and moose- with antics of his own. Audience members become bucks, does, cows and bulls, helping Doc Wild illustrate the quirky body language, sounds, and smells of our antler friends. How is a bull elk with a harem a “sensitive guy”? How are moose cows “new age” women? How many scent glands are in a deer, and why do they need them all? Doc Wild knows….and before you realize, you have learned so much (between the laughs), you will know too!
Also new for kids is Yankee Joe’s Gemstone & Fossil Mining where kids can strike it rich!  They can mine for gems and fossils and keep what they find!
