GON Staff | July 5, 2023

Top Georgia anglers will be conducting regular seminars throughout show hours during the July 28-30 Ag-Pro Outdoor Blast.

Being in a building that’s nothing but outdoor stuff while seeing and meeting a bunch of like-minded people is what the Ag-Pro Outdoor Blast is all about. And it’s coming soon up soon! Make plans to come see us July 28-30 at LakePoint. The 2023 event is presented by Georgia Drives Chevy and sponsored by Kenzie’s Optics and GON.

New this year are trapping seminars presented by members of the Georgia Trappers Association, and the Blast will again feature lots to do all weekend, including the Truck-Buck Shoot-Out on Sunday at 3:30.

30-30 Ministries $1K Shoot-Out
Anyone can step up on the Shoot-Out arena stage on Saturday, July 29 for a chance at $1,000! Qualifying is 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (first-come, first serve as time allows.) Anyone who hits the egg from 45 feet qualifies for the finals at 4 p.m. to shoot at the egg from 60 feet to determine our $1,000 winner. Qualifying is $5 per shot or $10 for three shots.

Deer Scoring
Bring your mount or antlers, and our team of official Boone & Crockett scorers will tally up the inches, and your buck’s final score will automatically be listed in GON’s Georgia Deer Records. Look for the Deer Wall against the back of the building. Drop your rack off anytime during show hours Friday or Saturday, but please show up no later than 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 30. Don’t wait until the show is about to close on Friday and Saturday. Antlers dropped off near the closing hours of the show might not be available for pick up until the next day.

Gun-An-Hour Giveaway
Just for walking in the door, Blast attendees will again have free chances to win a gun every hour of the show. A name will be drawn every hour among attendees who register for free each day. The person drawn will simply come by the GON booth, complete the federal background check, pick up their brand-new gun and take it home that day.

The Gun-An-Hour Giveaway is made possible through a partnership with non-profit 30-30 Ministries, and with some awesome help from Adventure Outdoors. No raffle tickets to buy, just a simple sign-up for all show attendees who are 18 and older who have a paid ticket to that day’s show. You must be present to win, and you must claim your gun within 30 minutes of your name being called.

The Franchi Instinct SL 20 Gauge retails for $1,599.

Back this year during the Ag-Pro Outdoor Blast is the Bass Tub and fishing seminars, and the Blast will feature hundreds of hunting and fishing vendors, many offering special bargains.

Also at the Ag-Pro Outdoor Blast will be the Yonah Invitational Turkey Calling Championships. This is an NWTF Grand National Qualifier—earn a spot in Nashville! For calling-contest info, contact Donald Jarrett at 706.473.8027.

Only A Handful Of Vendor Booths Remain Available
The Ag-Pro Outdoor Blast sells out of vendor space yearly, but with the move to the LakePoint Champions Center the show expanded to more than 125,000 square feet. New exhibitors can now join this special weekend to promote their products and services and meet thousands of sportsmen, but only hunting and fishing related products and businesses are allowed.
