2010 Southern Trophy Hunters Big Buck Expo

Lakeland. Not sure how we got picked to host this event, but God bless us, we did! This weekend is the return of the Big Buck Expo at the Lakeland Center. Here is all the information about this year's show, lifted straight from their website...I'm nothing but a filthy plagiarizer.

Muzzy Hunting Camp Backwoods Adventures

For the very first time, the hosts of the Pursuit Channel's Backwoods Life television show and the Backwoods Life Radio Show, Michael Lee, Kevin Knighton, and Trey Wetherington will be joining the Muzzy Hunting Camp at this year's Big Buck Expo's. In their seventh year in outdoor television these good 'ol Southern boys are sure to bring a backwoods spin to the already popular and entertaining Muzzy Hunting Camp sessions. Michael, Kevin, and Trey have hunted all over the united states and beyond for anything from whitetail to alligators to antelope with their southern roots and backwoods ways of getting the job done. As award winning tv hosts and radio personalities, these guys are sure to liven things up at this year's expos!" Check the guys out at www.BackwoodsLife.com

Flint Knapping & Primitive Archery with Billy Berger

Whether we hunt with a .270 Remington or the lastest Mathews Bow, as hunters most all of us are fascinated by our hunting ancestors who truly did things "the hard way". Billy Berger has spent the last 20 years perfecting his primitive weapon skills. Billy not only Builds bows, Arrows and Knaps Arrowheads, he hunts with them! If your asking, the answer is yes! He does put meat in the freezer each year. Make sure you stop by the Midwest Land Company booth and see Billy at his trade; it's amazing! Check the em out at here!

Randal is a good ‘ol Southern boy. Born and raised in the Deep South and serving in ministry most of his adult life. Currently he and his family are living in Lakeland and he is the preaching minister of Highlands Church of Christ in Lakeland. I have personally had the pleasure of hearing Randal speak; you will not regret spending time with him.

Basic ticket prices are $10....and whatever the Lakeland Center charges for parking. I enjoy this event every year as a chance to look through new hunting gear, get a feel for hunting trends, and catch a seminar or two. This Friday I will be handing out swag with fellow Mossy Oak ProStaffers. Hope to see you then.
