Big Horn Show On Now

The 51st annual Big Horn Outdoor Recreation Show runs through the weekend, and sportsmen and sportswomen from around the Inland Northwest should be in for a treat.

Even now, hunters are bringing their trophy racks to the grounds of the Spokane Interstate Fair and Expo Center for scoring, and one that will be on hand is LaFawn Sutton’s 170 1/8 Pope & Young whitetail, shot last September while in velvet by the North Spokane lass.

Rich Landers wrote about her hunt last weekend, and today has an image on his blog of one nice shoulder-mounted elk being moved into Trophy Territory alongside other big-racked bruisers.

There’s plenty more to the show, put on by the Inland Northwest Wildlife Council, of course (see below ad in this month’s Northwest Sportman). It opens at noon on Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, closing at 8 p.m. all except Sunday, when it’s over at 4 p.m.

Admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors and students (and one ticket gets you access to all four days should you run into anyone really chatty — ahem, Jim Nelson) and free for kids 6 and under.

There are ticket deals (again, see the ad below), and if you swing by the Northwest Sportsman booth, we’ll hand you a free magazine (provided Brian Lull, our sales manager who is headed there now, doesn’t have to trade them for gas to make the long haul from Seattle to Spokane).
