New in 2012! Musk ox sponsored by Cabela's
Show attracts Canada’s BEST Fishing & Hunting
The All-Canada Show, visiting mid-America’s largest cities, will feature Canada’s top fishing and hunting destinations. The 29th annual event also includes free seminars, free maps and travel guides, a free magazine with features and tips on Canadian adventures, free Cabela’s hunting simulator and, on opening night, a free Dardevle collector lure.
Adventurers interested in traveling to Canada will find a wide variety of destinations including canoe outfitters, drive in resorts, remote fly-in outposts, 5-star fly-in lodges and hunting outfitters. The shows website lists exhibitors in each market including links to their websites. Go to AllCanadaShow.com for details.
The show is also a resource for planning the perfect adventure.
“The key to a successful Canadian trip is proper planning,” says the show’s owner Jennifer Young, “That’s the whole premise of the All-Canada Show – we have everything you need to plan your trip. The opportunity for show guests to talk, face-to-face, with the owners and operators of these lodges…greatly improves their chances of a successful adventure.”
Show staff and featured speaker Norm “the Great” McCreight use their combined 80 years fishing and hunting expertise on the show’s seminar stage to educate consumers. These informational presentations offer insight into selecting for the perfect destination, choosing the right lodge plan, crossing the border, plus tips on saving money and wilderness safety.
Young also noted, “There are some misconceptions out there about trips to Canada, the biggest being that it is expensive. Our show does host some of the finest lodges and resorts anywhere in the world, but there are also many housekeeping lodges and camps offering fabulous fishing that are very affordable.”
“If you like Canada, there’s plenty to keep you occupied at the show,” she said, “Although the primary purpose of the show is to select the perfect destination for your adventure, we also offer a variety of information, attractions and entertainment to aid in the process and create a real Canadian atmosphere.”
