Win Tickets to the Fred Hall Show in Long Beach, CA!
It's about time we had a giveaway, wouldn't you say? Sorry to my non-resident blog readers,  this one is going to be for the people who will actually be able to attend the event.  More than likely Southern California residents or people visiting from our of town that week. The contest is only going to run for 6 days.

I have six (6)  tickets to the Fred Hall Fishing, Tackle, Boat and Travel Show at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center in Long Beach, CA. It kicks off on March 9 and runs through March 13.

Tim Baker, from the Fred Hall Shows, graciously donated the tickets and had this to say:
We do have some additional hunting at the show this year. Factory displays from Savage, Mossberg, Legacy Sports, Ceasar Guerini Shotguns, Hunters Specialties, Rocky Mountain Pack Systems, Gamo Outdoors, the Safari Club Trailer, Crosman, The Cowboys, COHA, NRA, retail displays, lodges, outfitters and so on. 

There will be plenty of hunting vendors, archery shops and my favorite, outdoor hunting seminars. Plus, they have trick archer and contortionist Lilia Stepanova. She's got some mad skills that's for sure. Last year I attended a great elk calling seminar by Jim Rizzo from Bugling Bull Game Calls. It was fantastic! I am going to try to get another one in this year! I will be going on Saturday, March 12. Look for the black DIYBOWHUNTER.COM shirts and hats!
Here is how you enter to WIN:
Tickets will be distributed individually, unless we get less than 6 entries. If that is the case I will see if the winners want more than one ticket.

1. Leave me a comment and tell me why you want to go. Also, in the case that only a few people enter, tell me how many tickets you can use.

2. For a second chance to enter, re-post this giveaway on your blog and leave a link to your post in the comment section.

  1. What a great idea... After living here in SoCal now for the second time covering 4 years total, can you believe we've never been to the Fishing, Tackle, Boat, and Travel Show. Crazy huh... To whomever, wins the tickets enjoy yourself. This is a great gift.

  2. I want to go to the fred hall show to fully roll around in the latest of sportsman culture. in years past i've enjoyed it as much as my dog used to enjoy rolling around in a dead seal when i used to take him to the beach. i want to see new products, ideas & techniques that are cutting edge & what is coming our way over the horizon. i want to meet like minded females that are smoking hot & don't like horses more than they do men. ok maybe i went a little too far & personal with that one but you get the idea i really like going to the fred hall show so give me a free ticket or two & i will put it to hellafied good use....the end

  3. I would look good with those tickets in my hands!!! Is that a good enough reason?

    Thanks Al!!!

  4. I would look good with those tickets in my hand! Is that a good enough reason?

    Thanks Al!!!!

  5. well i think i should get the tickets because i love to fish! and i love to look at the new products that come out every year! but most importantly i like to go down there with my dad it gives us time to bond and hang out together since he isnt always home for work! so thanks for the chance al!

  6. I really wanna go to the show too, but with the price of diesel fuel, I cant afford to pay for fuel & admission & parking & food etc etc...

    I started looking around on line to see if the promoters of the show might be offering free tickets & then I found this site. :)
    I live in L.A. & its about a 30-40 minute drive for me.
    & that equals about $25-$30.00 in fuel in my truck.
    So add that to the price of addmission & parking. :(
    I've not had a job in 2 months & spend most of my spare time on the water to avoid thinking about the mounting bills. :(

    I know if I go to the show, I might spend even more money while I'm there & that's a scary thought..
    So maybe its ok if I don't go.

  7. How do we figure out if we get the tickets?
    Will you post it here the same we do?

  8. Hi Cam, this contest was for last week.

  9. Bummer..... story of my life, a dollar short & a week late..
    Oh well I guess I'll save more money by not going...

  10. Sunrise with a bent rod, wind in my face with a big one at the end of my line. I enjoy all aspects of the Fred Hall Show. From new equipment , tackle, new techniques, destinations, charter boats and alot of fish talk. I would really enjoy 2 tickets to the show. Thank you foe the opportunity!...Lance
