Palmetto Sportsmen's Classic

The 26th Annual Palmetto Sportsmen's Classic is being held this weekend at the State Fairgrounds. Numerous vendors are on hand selling everything from fishing rods to fishing and hunting trips. Boat dealers, ATV dealers, tractor dealers, as well as tackle and clothing booths are all there to offer the latest outdoor gear. The Archery in Schools program is also holding an archery tournament, with 1st place teams qualifying for the National Tournament.

The SCDNR has a rack scoring table set up so bring those mounts in to have them scored. The catch-and-release fishing pond is always a big attraction for the kids, and this year is no exception. The bass trailer, a giant aquarium the size of an 18-wheeler, is also at the Classic and allows professional anglers to show the best techniques for catching the largemouth bass inside it.

South Carolina Sportsman Magazine is giving away a CVA muzzleloader to anyone who registers for their website during the Classic. Stop by their booth to sign up for your chance to win, and for those having deer racks scored, make sure Dan Kibler gets your photograph. Andy Crawford is also interviewing some hunters and putting the video on SC Sportsman's website. To see more of SC Sportsman's coverage of the event, check out their dedicated Sportsmen's Classic webpage at http://www.southcarolinasportsman.com/communities/palmetto_sportsmen_classic/gallery_photo.php.
