A Sportsman’s Blast In Macon

GON hunting show a hit with hunters and kids.

Nick Carter | September 1, 2008

Growing into its second year, the GON Outdoor Blast held Aug. 8-10 at the Macon Centreplex was even bigger and better than last year. This year’s Blast welcomed visitors to a show floor packed wall-to-wall with nothing but hunting and fishing.

From guide services, call makers and taxidermy displays to hunting-gear vendors, archery shoots and duck-calling contests, there was something at the show for every sportsman and woman. And, for the little’uns, there were enough kid-friendly activities to keep them occupied throughout the weekend. It truly was an event for the whole family.

The following four pages are a pictorial look at the 2008 GON Outdoor Blast. For more from this weekend of outdoors in Macon, look through this issue for articles on the Truck-Buck Shoot-Out, the Barbecue Blast, the Georgia State Duck Calling Contest and the food drive for Sportsman’s Pantry.
