Bill Reier JR is bringing his 2017 Great Rockies Sport Show tour to the Adams Center this Friday through Sunday. Since Mother Nature has probably given you a case of cabin fever this event might just be what the doctor ordered for a cure. Reier has loaded up this year’s show in Missoula with eight seminar experts that will have seminars almost every hour with topics ranging from ranging from how to take better outdoor photos with Arnie Gidlow to cooking with freeze dried foods with Amber Heath to packing the Decker saddle the traditional way with Casey Burns to elk hunting with Dan Kloer to ice out fishing with Kit and Trevor Johnson and how to tie flies with Chuck Stranahan. Tony Reinhardt will share his knowledge on techniques for tying foam flies.

Hunters that would like to master the art of calling in elk, deer, antelope, turkey and predators will want to attend the seminars from Bruce Hancock from Calls M All game call. Hancock who is the founder of Hancock’s Outdoor Advanced Products invented this unique calling system because he says you never know what call you might need  when hunting in the great outdoors, “ If you’re serious about game calling, then you will want to own the original Four-Time Award Winning CALLS-M-ALL game call. This sturdy, effective calling tool is easy to use and is already being widely used all over the U.S. and Canada. Its development was inspired by our passion for game calling, and the lack of a versatile call in the market”. Hancock claims that his call will replace over a dozen calls and will enable you to put all of your calls in your hand with just one call. According to his website Mike Eastman of the Eastman journal clained that Hancock’s call is the most versatile call that he has ever used.

The Great Rockies Sport Show is also be a great place to take the kids, not only because admission for kids and teenagers ages up to 17 year old is free , but while they are there they will really enjoy fishing in the trout pond, mining in the gemstone and fossil mine, have fun in the kid’s corner sponsored by the Montana Trappers Association or take aim at the BB gun shooting range sponsored by the Five Valleys Chapter of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation or the 3D archery shoot sponsored by Bitteroot Valley Archery. Admission for adults is only $5 and is good for all weekend.

Boats, RV’s and power sports will be on display from retailers throughout Western Montana. You can book a hunting and fishing trip to Canada or Alaska too! I will be there with a booth promoting the Montana Outdoor Radio Show, so stop by and say hi and get your free 2017 Montana hunting schedule. While you are there be sure to check out the 2017 Montana Outdoor Radio Show Guaranteed lure. This year’s lure features the Rapala Rip n Rap in 2 new UV bright colors.
