  • Does your state or local fair / field days have anything related to hunting and fishing?

    At the New York State Fair, the Conservation Dept. has a building with wall-tanks of all of NY's freshwater fish. You can stand at the glass, nose-to-nose with big bass, trout, pike, everything found in NY waters. They also have game wardens on hand to answer questions, as well as licensing agents. Lots of brochures and literature, too, on everything from salamanders to moose. Most years they're giving away free seeds and saplings, too.

      The Ohio State fair is gigantic as are the local County fairs by the large Cities.
      They all have various attractions relating to the outdoors.

      Sorry, I had a lot more to my reply but it disappeared.

        The Iowa state fair has a DNR building with fish tanks full of fish from iowa streams/rivers/lakes. They have a fly tying competition with the winning flies on display. A section with kayaking and conoeing. Camping. Then they hold demonstrations about fly fishing, keeping the outdoors clean, game cooking. They had a B.B. gun shooting station set up this year for the kids too. With one on one instructor sitting with each kid as they shot at different targets.
