A Weekend of Virginia Shows with Joella Bates and Kevin Paulson

This weekend was the kick off to our promotions campaign for recruiting our outfitter partners to  It has been an amazing year of building the site and growing our readership and now we are in growth mode.   Over the last 2 months both Joella and I have been to a ton of shows across the country and we are now in full blown sales mode.  This next week Joella will be at the NWTF National Convention in Atlanta.  I will be at the RMEF National Elk Camp in Reno and we will be covering as much as we can of the events and bring the experiences back to all of you.

This weekend we were in Fishersville, Virginia on Saturday morning for the 21st year of their sport show and Tiffany and Lee Lakosky were bringing in the crowds in herds.  It was a fantastic show just outside of Staunton and the rooms were filled with vendors from all across the country.  Brodie the Bear was also in attendance and that old boy is getting to be a bit too big for his cage.  The crowd watched in amazement as that ham jumped up for treats and was showing off for the crowds.

We then took a short trip North to the Greater Virginia Sports Show in Harrisonburg, VA to see Ralph and Vicki Cianciarulo. They were meeting with the fans and sharing a laugh with everyone.  PJ Wright, Stacey and Max Rowe put on a great show with a team of support from the local community.  We had a blast getting to see Brenda Valentine.  We then watched Frank Addington, Jr impress us all with his wonderful shooting.

The thrill of the day though had to be the chance to judge the Elk Calling Competition and share in the 2nd Annual Elk Calling Competition with the Shenandoah Valley Chapter of the RMEF.  Jim Massie and all the volunteers down there sure did make Joella and I feel welcome and we really enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of the event.

This is going to be a week of travel and fun coming up and we look forward to seeing as many people as we can in the next week.  Please contact us at or if you are going to be at these shows because we would love to meet and see you all.
