Brent Rudolph, deer program leader at the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, will host a town hall at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, to discuss antler hunting restrictions with attendees.
BIRCH RUN, MI — For the first time in 13 years, the Huntin’ Time Expo returns Jan. 17-19 to the Birch Run Expo Center.
Admission to the event is $10 for adults and $5 for children and seniors and includes access to vendors, demonstrations, free trophy scoring, a gun auction, taxidermy displays, and an ice fishing area.
Attendees can attend seminars on topics ranging from deer calling to hunting-dog basics.
The exhibits are not exclusive to hunters, though. Tom Antor, owner of Sports Link Inc., promotes the show with his wife and said that families are welcome to attend the event.
“There’s also a great opportunity for kids, ” Antor said. “We’re going to have live animals. There will be a live grizzly bear, live wolves and we’ll have a shooting simulator for kids. It will be a lot of fun for them.”
To clarify recently implemented antler restrictions, Brent Rudolph, deer program leader at the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, will also hold a town hall at 6:30 p.m. Saturday about the new mandates. He will take questions from the audience and discuss the restriction expansion throughout the state.
The expo is open from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Admission for children will be free on Sunday and parking is included in the cost of the ticket.
How is the Mn Horse expo?
I wanted to go the big azz world horse expo and didn't make it (yet). I did manage to go to the Peruvian Paso Nationals in Tx, years ago. It was a blast!!!! I still have a T shirt from it. I refuse to throw it out. lol.
A few hundred years ago I went to the Kansas City Royal. :D
No I didn't go to ride, I was totally a spectator. It was a good thing, I'd have fell off a lot due to all my rubber necking.
I know of one place you might be
Able to volunteer.
Have you ever attended the MN Horse Expo? It is held every year (3rd weekend in April) at the MN State Fairgrounds.
One year, I volunteered to walk horses for the children's pony rides. It just consisted of walking around and around, leading a horse with kids on them.
This would at least give you an opportunity to meet some other horse-centric people. Express your interest in volunteering, and get to know some people in the horse world.
I can find you a link if you are interested?
