Cold Weather Brings Big Crowds To Sportsmen's Show

February 28, 2014, 5:02 PM by Sammi Bjelland

Cold Weather Brings Big Crowds To Sportsmen's Show

The Sportsmen's Show is off to a strong start this weekend.

While there aren't any tigers at this year's Sportsmen's Show, you will find mountain lions and bears.

The show kicked off Thursday night, and so far organizers say there's been a great turn-out.

"We had about 1,200 people come in, which is a great opening night. We get about 21,000 through the four days and we're off to a really good start today," show manager, Barry Cenaiko said. 

Show organizer, Barry Cenaiko, says this year's harsh winter might actually help the numbers here at this year's Sportsmen's Show, because people are ready to get out of the house and into the outdoors. 

The Cedar Shore Resort near Chamberlain is reaping the benefits of this less than ideal winter.

"Cabin fever has definitely set in. I think everybody is. Just by the show here, the attendance for a Friday. I think everybody is ready to get out of the house, get rid of the cold weather and get on the water," Brock Dufrain with Cedar Shore said. 

And if you're looking to make a big purchase, there's plenty to choose from.

Cenaiko says about 60-percent of boats and campers are sold around this time of year.

"The way the camper and boat industry works, there's a lot of factory incentives. They want sales now. They want the orders now, so they can build the stuff and get it to you in April or May and then you take it to wherever you're going to go," said Cenaiko. 

Kids can also try their hand at trout fishing. Something 10-year-old Kadin Huyser misses about summer.

"Well fishing, I like it because I just like being out on the lake," Huyser said. "A lot of my friends come a long with me and we just play around and have some fun." 

Which is why vendors are excited to see what warm weather will bring for businesses.

"If this is any indication, we should have a great summer," Dufrain said.

You can find out more information by going to the Sportsmen's Show website.
