In less than three weeks, there will be a great gathering of the outdoor enthusiast, wildlife department personnel, vendors, instructors, and more at the Lazy E arena in Guthrie, Oklahoma. The event is the Oklahoma Wildlife Expo 2010.
This event has continually grown since it's inception, and has hosted as many as 40,000 people over the three day run of the event.
The menu of things to do, see, or get hands-on is way too long to list, but some examples include riding a mountain bike, cooking in a Dutch oven, learning to fly-fish, learn to call a turkey, shoot a bow, or kayak.
Perhaps the most amazing part of this celebration of the outdoors in Oklahoma is that it's free. Free entrance, free parking, just simply free.
The folk at the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife put a lot of hard work into this event, but I wager it's a labor of love for each of them.
Support the Oklahoma Wildlife Expo with your attendance. You won't regret it.
