Default San Antonio TTHA Show

This weekend will be the last Texas Hunters Extravaganza for 2018. If crowds in Houston and Ft. Worth are any indication, San Antonio should be good as well. I will be in the PURSUIT CHANNEL booth along with my buddy Larry Weishuhn who will be there most of the day on Saturday. Blaine Anthony from the Bear Whisperer will be there most of the weekend as well.
We are not selling anything, just there to promote the channel and tell you about the new PURSUITUP app that is FREE of charge. If you are planning to attend, please stop by for a visit and rest on our couches.
Thanks and Adios,
Gary

Wife and I are going to make the 2.5 hour drive to check out the show to see if it's something we want to exhibit at next year. Hope to see some other TBH folks there.

Don't do it Mike! (there I can't be blamed.)

I'll be there and due to overwhelming sales at the first two shows if you need anything from me better get there Friday or I'll surely sell out.

I'll be there Saturday and Sunday at the LSBA booth, trying to explain why they call it "fishing", not "catching."

Is there a list of vendors available anywhere? We are planning on attending the SA show for the first time in many years. Wife wants a new box blind to hunt in with the kids. Hoping to compare them all in 1 place.

Look forward to it.

We were well represented. I bet I spoke to 100 TBH'ers over the last two shows so far.

Attendance was up in the San Antonio show as well. The great thing is that we saw so many young couples with small children, letting me know that there is a future out there. Another thing that some of us old timers noticed is that we saw a lot of new faces at the show this year which is also very positive.
I am not sure if it is the economy or if TTHA came with a more "social media" driven ad campaign that helped with the great turnouts. At any rate, THANKS to all who came by the PURSUIT CHANNEL booth for a visit.
Adios,
Gary

I didn't think about that but you are correct, lots of families. Encouraging.

Hey how did I miss out on getting my celeb selfie with you Gary?

hammer63, sorry that I missed you. I was out of the booth most of the time when the Bear Whisperer was there. I used that time to walk around and see other booths and visit with buddies at the show.
Gunnyart, glad that you had a great show and sold out of merchandise. Yes, we should have taken photos but I never think about that.
Adios,
Gary

I went on Friday hoping to catch a lighter crowd cause I'm hauling my arm around in a shoulder sling but there were quite a few people. I enjoyed all the booths and saw a lot of interesting stuff. Even made a few strategic purchased

Went Sunday afternoon and didn't seem as big as in the past. Maybe just cause it was Sunday afternoon.

It was slower on Sunday afternoon which is typical to all the shows. Most of the vendors that I talked with said that it was a good buying crowd.
Adios,
