West Virginia Trophy Hunters will put on their annual hunting and fishing show at the Charleston Civic Center on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It is a wonderful opportunity to see over 230 vendor booths from as far away as Africa and Alaska. They have the West Virginia Whitetail Hall of Fame. Some of the largest deer ever taken in West Virginia will be on display. If you have killed an exceptional buck, you can get it scored while at the show. Just don’t forget your check in tag.

Most vendors donate to an auction, which is a wonderful opportunity to get a fishing or hunting trip cheaper than normal. Try your luck. One never knows when a deal comes along.

There will be outfitters for elk, deer, antelope and bear. Fishing services from the Great Lakes region, Lake Cumberland, New River, and even saltwater charters will be available. At the least, it is a great opportunity to research your dream getaway.

Seminars will be offered on items of interest, such as coyote hunting, fishing, and turkey hunting. These are located in a separate room of the Civic Center

If you have a family or female friend going with you, Charleston Town Center Mall is across the road. You might want to consider taking them out to eat for their consideration--or just go to Gander Mountain, located on Corridor G.

On a side note, Calhoun County had one archery black bear harvest in the 2008 hunting season. It also had its first ever firearm harvest of a bear. If you are the lucky hunter, please contact me. I would love to share your story with the readers. I can be contacted at
