    Trade shows

    How many of you go to the trade shows?

    Do you wait to buy gear at the shows since most companies are giving deals at the shows?

    What?s your normal reason to go to the trade shows? Seeing the latest and greatest gear on the market?

    I used to go to a lot of them years ago when I lived in Calif. None since I retired and moved 17 years ago. Just too far from my home place.

    I really enjoy them but good ones are 3+ hours away in Portland. I would like to go to the Sheep Show and the SCI show someday. The most interesting once were the ones in Germany when we lived in Europe. You get to see hunting from an entirely new perspective.

    I go to the Sheep Show every year, initially to meet and find an outfitter for a moose hunt. This year I'll be going to see what's new out there and to talk and see old friends from BC. I might even eat at Ruby's Trent��

    I have attended a couple when I happened to be close... that's pretty rare when you live in rural Nebraska.

    I've been to quite a few but rarely buy anything. When I retire I'll probably start gong to the Reno Sheep Show on a regular basis.

    That would be awesome. That show brings in a ton of revenue for Reno.
