Forget the gun show – if you want hunting equipment, you can go to a supply store. And pass on the sportsman show – if you want to talk fishing knives or poles, join an internet forum. The REAL hunting-related tour this year is the Northwest Big Game Inc.’s 2011 Tour of the Northwest’s Heads & Horns Wall of Kings Display.
As reported in the COAST article 2011 Tour of the Northwest’s Big Game Animals, the traveling Heads and Horns display “features record breaking trophy heads from across the Northwest,” including unusual and atypical horns of varying shapes and sizes.
If you’re an avid hunter yourself, feel free to bring in your own game heads to be measured by officials from NW Big Game, Boone & Crockett, and Pope & Young. Record-breaking game heads will be recorded in the official big game record books of Washington, Oregon, Montana, and Idaho, and winners will be announced at the end of the show. Winners will recieve fantastic prizes from COAST, including the dazzling High Performance H7 LED Headlamp and the versatile LED Pro Pocket Pliers. Don’t miss out!
