Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ Bureau of Forestry will once again be present at the Lehigh Valley Hunting and Fishing Extravaganza providing information and materials to interested attendees. Bureau of Forestry staff will be on hand to answer questions and discuss Penn’s Woods. Topics of discussion can be anything tree related, but often include: forest pests, status of the timber market, improving your forest for wildlife, forest fire prevention, urban forestry, private forest landowner assistance programs, and much more.
As a new addition this year, the PA Bureau of Forestry will also be hosting a station for the Scout Outdoors Challenge as well as the .PA Outdoor Skills Competition. The theme of their station and quiz will be, “Tree ID and Forestry Knowledge”.
Hunting & Fishing Flea Market
If, indeed, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, bring along a few extra bucks to get in on a rich array of used and “experienced” outdoor gear of all sorts in the Outdoorsmen’s Flea Market, to be held Saturday. Last year’s sale of hunting, fishing, camping, trapping, scouting, and military related items sold like crazy, our list of flea market venders is growing daily. Registration cost is $20 per section. Check the show Website at www.lvhfe.com to register.
The Ehrig Settlement with lots to do and see and good things to eat. Touching upon primitive lifestyles, mountaineer cooking, blanket trading and plenty more, the state’s “mountain men” invite all show visitors to stop by. Step back in time with past federation V.P. Charles Sumpter and his cohorts and test your skills on the black powder shooting range or tossing tomahawks and more. This year’s encampment will be up top of the hill central to the show!!
2017 Scout Challenge Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts
Certain to be a big draw for scouts is the 2017 Scout Challenge, a 10-station competition scattered across the fairgrounds to test youngsters’ talents in BB-gun marksmanship, tomahawk throwing, casting accuracy, knot tying and other events. Courtesy of the show directors, cash prizes of $100, $50 and $25 respectively will go to the first, second and third place finishers in the Scout Challenge... The more scouts shooting, the better the chance for a troop to return home a bit richer. The 2011 event drew boy and girl scouts from three states and 24 troops.

One of the big stars of our show is the KIDS FREE FISHING AREA
This part of the event was so much fun last year. There were tons of kids that caught their first fish at the show they were so excited, I know we surely added some new fishermen to our ranks!!! At this area we have some great adult mentors to help the kids, equipped with nothing more than some good old fashion cane poles with a hook, line & sinker. I think our mentors had as much fun and excitement as the kids did. The Fish for the Kids fishing area are sponsored by our friend Dave Rothrock at ROTHROCK MOTORS & The Storage Centers owned by RAB.MANAGEMENT GROUP. & Limestone Springs Trout Nursery, Visit these great sponsors on our website.
