Fight cabin fever at the Ninth Annual Rockingham Fishing and Hunting Outdoor Expo
Meet The “Best of the Best” In New Hampshire.
New Hampshire – -(AmmoLand.com)- The annual Rockingham Fishing and Hunting Expo is set for Saturday January 9th through Sunday, January 10th, 2010. Proceeds from this event will be donated to the New England Paralyzed Veterans of America.
“I am really excited for Rockingham this year. It has been a few years since we have done it because of schedule conflicts but it is always a great show,” said Kyle Scanlon, editor of Outdoors Magazine, which will have a booth at the event and be selling discounted subscriptions for show attendees.
“I have been looking at the seminar line-up and it looks great! A lot of ‘local’ talent from guys who know how to get it done in the area,” Scanlon said. “Bill Saiff will be there, he always does great presentations, and I saw Bob Howe will be doing his ‘trophy brook trout’ seminars which I attended last fall in New York-it is by far the best seminar on the topic I have ever seen. I can’t wait.”
Other seminar presenters include; Cod and haddock fishing in New England with guide and outdoor writer Allan Butler; Ice fishing for lake trout and perch with Adrien Lavoie of YoAdrien Charters on Lake Winnipesaukee; Getting to your deer stand without spooking your prey with Jim Gallagher; Light spin fishing on the Merrimack – 2009 Season with Captain Charles Crue; Hunting strategies for the North American back yard bucks by rattling, calling, and scents with Matt Richards of Mountain Hollow Game Calls; Late-season jigging tips and tricks for trout and salmon on Lake Winnipesaukee with NH guide Travis Williams; Hunting the whitetail deer in New England with Dean Vanier of North Woods Common Scents; “Swimbaits made simple” by Bassmaster Elite Series Angler Mark Burgess; and video shooting on your next hunt with Steve Kennedy of Lone Wolf Productions.
