Texas Hunters Gear-Up for The Hunters Extravaganza

San Antonio, Texas - As hunters start taking regular trips to the deer lease or hunting ranch to check on blinds, fill feeders and set out Cuddeback® trail cameras, July and August mean one big thing to Texas hunters, the Hunters Extravaganza® trade shows, produced by Texas Trophy Hunters Association (TTHA), officially kick off the beginning of hunting season.

The 2010 San Antonio Hunters Extravaganza® show takes place THIS WEEKEND at the Alamodome, July 9-11, 2010. Showcasing more gear, guides and outfitters than ever before, the Hunters Extravaganzas® prepare the Texas hunter with everything needed to hunt that trophy whitetail buck of a lifetime. Plus, there will be more FREE prizes, contests and attractions than ever before. The Hunters Extravaganza® truly is the Granddaddy of all hunting shows.

Everyone who walks in the door can register for FREE hunts and prizes in the Texas Sized Giveaway including a trophy hunt for two whitetail bucks at the Bella Vista Ranch, a pronghorn hunt at 4F Outfitters, one of 30 pairs of Nikon™ binoculars valued at over $200 each, or many other great prizes.
Attendees can try their hand at the TTHA 3D Archery Championship Tournament plus see the biggest and best trophy mounts from last season in the Annual Deer Competition sponsored by Nikon™. Kids will love the Lone Star Bowhunters Your Archery Range, the Texas Junior Anglers Catch Fish Pond and Joe Martin's Snakes of Texas!

This year, TTHA will partner with Hunters' Harvest to hold Clean Out Your Freezer Day at all of the 2010 Hunters Extravaganzas®! Attendees can make a difference in the lives of others by bringing donations of frozen, wrapped and processed wild game to the Hunters' Harvest collection sites located in the parking lot at each show. Donations will be distributed to local organizations feeding the hungry.

The San Antonio venue will also offer the opportunity to see LIVE BEARS in the Great Bear Show. Also, attendees will be entertained for hours at the laser shot and paintball trailer and the Operation Game Thief Trailer provided by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The Hunters Extravaganza® is truly fun for the whole family.

The San Antonio show will feature Outdoor Celebrities available for autographs and photos with attendees including: Ralph & Vicki Cianciarulo of Nikon Pro-Staff & The Choice TV Show; Ronnie "Cuz" Strickland of Mossy Oak Apparel; "Dr. Deer," James Kroll, PhD of Institute for White-Tailed Deer Mgmt & Research; and 9-time UFC Welter Weight Champion, Matt Hughes.
