NB Sportsmen Show 2016

Moncton, NB – For outdoor enthusiasts in search of hunting and fishing gear, equipment and accessories, the Moncton Coliseum was the place to be April 1-3, for the 2016 edition of the New Brunswick Sportsmen’s Show. Again this year, the show was co-located with the Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum and the Moncton Boat Show, offering those in attendance tons of options for outdoor activities!

“With a record-high audience last year, we were pleasantly surprised that attendance was up again,” said Scott Sprague, Show Manager. “A slight increase over 2015 numbers meant that this was our largest audience to date for the New Brunswick Sportsmen’s Show! The packed aisles gave evidence of this, along with steady sales for equipment and accessories.”

Exhibitor comments focused on the strong sales as well as the quality of visitors, who came to the show in the mood to buy and eager for the fishing and hunting seasons to arrive.

“The NB Sportsmen’s Show continues as the place to be for all outdoor enthusiasts,” said Scott Babineau, Cabela’s Canada. “To have a show like this, matching our core focuses of Hunting, Fishing, Camping and Shooting, “It’s In Our Nature” for Cabela’s to be there. It gave us a great opportunity to connect with both our local and out of town customers. The show’s management team was fantastic to work with and can’t wait for the 2017 show.”

Congratulations to Matthew Wilson, who won the Canadian Duck Calling Championship, held at the show. Matthew is a 4-time Canadian duck calling champion and will represent Canada at the World Duck Calling Championship in Stuttgart, Arkansas in November 2016.

Thank you to the judges of the Canadian Duck & Goose Calling Championship, as well as its sponsors: East Coast Waterfowl Mafia, Capital Waterfowling, Resourceful Redneck, and Murray’s Irving.
