This year the Wake County Wildlife Club presented another outstanding Dixie Deer Classic. The 30th annual three day event provided hunters and outdoorsman with some much needed relief from the winter blues.
I especially enjoyed sitting in on a variety of seminars. They were educational, entertaining, and often humorous. Special guest Michael Waddell along with special guest Lee and Tiffany Lakosky also provided great seminars with their vast knowledge and experiences in the field.
The hunting exhibitor booths offered something for everyone from kids to adults. Good thing the event lasted for three days as there was so much to see and do. There seemed to be tremendous crowds each day.
The Outdoors Lore workshops provided useful and valuable information on a wide variety of topics.
The deer racks scoring competition offered many outstanding deer from the state. There was also an exceptional display of record bucks from around the country.
I was very impressed with the added attention given to kids. The “Take A Walk On The Wild Side” program provided educational workshops, seminars, and hands on demonstrations.
The show was well managed and provided maps and directions for ease of access to all events.
My hats off to the Wake County Wildlife Club for another awesome show. I look forward to next year.

I came across a new site recently for disabled hunters and fisherman. The site offers a variety of specialized adaptive equipment to assist disabled sportsman so they to can enjoy the outdoors.
The owners advised in a press release that they are in the early stages of adding products to the site. They are requesting suggestions from anyone interested in helping disabled sportsman by providing product ideas.
It is always good to come across people that put their hearts into ideas for the good of others. There are many people that are unable to enjoy the outdoors because of disabilities. I have personal experience with this myself as I have a family member in this situation.
If you would like to make any suggestions contact the people at :
