Show organizers say the 75th Annual Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Sports Show March 4-8 at the Wisconsin Exhibition Center at State Fair Park in West Allis, Wis., will have something of interest to every outdoor enthusiast.
The sport show will cater to those who love fishing, hunting and camping and others who get outdoors to enjoy kayaking, boating and hiking. It will feature exhibits and interactive activities for the entire family.
Attendees will experience exciting competitions, instructional seminars, and have plenty of time for one-on-one discussions with the hundreds of exhibitors. The competitions include “The Fastest Retriever Contest,” a “Daniel Boone Air Rifle Contest,” and the “West Town Archery Shooters Contest.”
Outdoor enthusiasts will have an opportunity to meet and speak with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources staff as well.
The DNR exhibit features a 600-gallon freshwater tank where visitors can view “live” bluegills, crappies, perch, largemouth, and smallmouth bass. Live reptiles and amphibians will be on display at the wetlands and waterways section. Returning this year will be the free kids’ casting clinics where young anglers can hone their skills. As always, show visitors can purchase their hunting, fishing and trapping licenses. License sales are a big attraction, especially since previous year licenses expire March 31.
People attending the sports show can also learn about the Wisconsin Deer Management Assistance Program. It provides habitat and herd management assistance to landowners interested in managing their property for wildlife.
