This isn't your everyday outdoor swap & shop. This is going to be MASSIVE! I grew up in Texas hunting with my father on a few occasions and there's just something about that sound. It's the early morning sounds of the fire, pots & pans lightly cracking together, and coffee brewing in the country. I can smell it and remember those sounds like we just left. I'm not the biggest camper today but I remember.

This weekend is a great chance to go out and see all the vendors and do a little shopping. This is Idaho and one of these events is unlike no other. There will also be guest speakers you might wanna check out from barbecue specialist, chefs, hunters and more. Check out the list:
