2023 Ag-Pro Outdoor Blast To Include GTA Trapping Talks

Something new this year—show goers can gain the knowledge needed to start trapping coyotes and other critters.

Brad Gill | April 30, 2023

Georgia Trappers Association Board Member Bryan Rooks, of Culloden, will be sharing his trapping knowledge at the Ag-Pro Outdoor Blast. Here he is with a Monroe County coyote.

Animals that eat fawns, turkey eggs and rabbits are high interest. Therefore, we’ve partnered with our friends at the Georgia Trappers Association to bring their equipment and know-how and share it with Outdoor Blast show-goers. GTA will host three trapping seminars at the Blast, and we know coyotes—a hot-button critter—will certainly be part of their trapping classes. In addition, GTA will have a booth there, so if you happen to miss these more formal discussions, these guys will be at their booth for three days to answer any and all trapping questions.

Returning to the Blast are the Truck-Buck and Youth Shoot-Outs, the Gun-An-Hour giveaway, the $1K 30-30 Ministries Shoot-Out, the Jason Clark Snake Show, the Bass Tub with fishing seminars, the Yonah Invitational Turkey Calling Championships, the APEX Outdoor Rewards ceremonies—and hundreds of outdoor vendors. 

This year’s hunting and fishing show takes place July 28-30 at the LakePoint Sports Champions Center in Emerson. The 2023 event is presented by Georgia Drives Chevy and sponsored by Apex Outdoor Rewards and Kenzie’s Optics.

The Ag-Pro GON 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 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.
