Today, I drove to Fishersville, Virginia for the Western Virginia Sports Show held annually in February at Expoland. For the September issue of Virginia Game & Fish every year, I profile four of the hunters who entered trophy bucks.
It is fascinating interviewing these fortunate and talented individuals and learning, so to speak, the stories behind the stories. Another great thing about the show is that I am able to meet guides, outfitters, and folks in the fishing and hunting business in the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.
I also am able to touch base with friends in the outdoors business, as today, for example, I was able to talk with people such as Jim Clay, Sherry Crumley, and Dennis Campbell. I also talked to some outfitters that I hope to go fishing and hunting with in the future.
I can't reveal here the stories behind the stories on those trophy bucks, of course, because that article will go in a magazine, but I can state that visiting the Western Virginia Sportshow is a great way to spend a winter day.
