Default Who's going to the International Sportsman's Expo next weekend?

How many CFers are going to shell out the $15 to go to ISE next weekend? If you're not going, is it because of the cost, the nature of the exhibitors, or some other reason?

i might go but its alot to spend to look at the same stuff i have been looking at for the last 6 years. the only reason i went in 2008 was for the state duck calling contest and i would go again if they had one

I have to admit, I haven't been there for several years. The last time I was there it seemed like it was mostly out of state outfitters and lodges and I left disappointed.

That was my experience two years ago.

I won 4 free tickets from 99.5 The Mountain (am also in the running to win a St. Croix Combo). I wasn't planning on going and I know 4 people that would probably appreciate them better than I would. Not sure if I'm going to go or not.

Funny. I was talking to a guy who used to be the store manager at Gander, before he went back to Orvis. He's going to be there working, and was asking if I was going to go. I mentioned I haven't been since the late 90's due to the fact that I was tired of the same old, same old...as well as all of the outfitters and out of state guys. It just seemed to me like the ISE had become a bit contrived.

Sounds like it hasn't changed much since then.

I always go, but I've never had to pay.

Have not been in about 15 years, dont plan on going either. Same ole' same ole'... guides scoping out their competition...not necessarily customers.

I enjoy it every year, there is always something cool down there. It won't be as good as the ice fishing show in Minnesota we went to in December. That was the coolist thing I have ever seen, those folks are seriously into it!
