About the Show
Each year in January we present the West Virginia Hunting and Fishing ShowSM at the Civic Center in Charleston, West Virginia. All proceeds except for costs to run the show and club operating expenses, are donated to programs that promote or protect hunting, fishing, wildlife, conservation, and related educational activities. From 1995 through 2012 our donations to these causes exceeded $322,000. In addition we also make many "in kind" donations to various organizations. Another program that we sponsor is our nearly 500 acre Wildlife Study Project in Wirt County. We have raised over $350,000 for that project. While raising funds is important, the primary reason for hosting this show is to bring hunters and fishermen into contact with organizations that can provide them with goods and services related to these activities. We are all 100% volunteers.
This will be the 27th year we have held this show for the benefit of our exhibitors, the hunters and fishermen in our area and the hunting, fishing, wildlife, and conservation organizations who benefit from our charitable donation program. Our past exhibitors tell us the West Virginia Hunting and Fish ShowSM is one of the best run and more productive shows in the East. The show features exhibitors from as far away as Alaska, New Zealand, Spain, and South Africa.
Our primary reason for hosting this show is to bring hunters and fishermen into contact with organizations that can provide them with goods and services related to these activities. We only solicit vendors of high quality products and services related to the sport of hunting and fishing.
In conjunction with the show, we run the West Virginia Whitetail Hall of FameSM. The West Virginia Whitetail Hall of FameSM provides an opportunity for individuals to bring their West Virginia deer trophies in for official scoring and to display the largest racks harvested. You may bring as many mounts in to be scored as you wish. Bring your tags for the deer for official WV DNR scoring.
