ESOS show canceled

"Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show - Update - January 24, 2013

Reed Exhibitions has decided to postpone, for now, the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show given the controversy surrounding its decision to limit the sale or display of modern sporting rifles (also called ARs) at the event. The show was scheduled to take place February 2-10 in Harrisburg, PA.

“Our original decision not to include certain products in the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show this year was made in order to preserve the event’s historical focus on the hunting and fishing traditions enjoyed by American families,” said Chet Burchett, Reed Exhibitions President for the Americas. “In the current climate, we felt that the presence of MSRs would distract from the theme of hunting and fishing, disrupting the broader experience of our guests. This was intended simply as a product decision, of the type event organizers need to make every day.

“It has become very clear to us after speaking with our customers that the event could not be held because the atmosphere of this year’s show would not be conducive to an event that is designed to provide family enjoyment. It is unfortunate that in the current emotionally charged atmosphere this celebratory event has become overshadowed by a decision that directly affected a small percentage of more than 1,000 exhibits showcasing products and services for those interested in hunting and fishing.

“ESS has long been proud to participate in the preservation and promotion of hunting and fishing traditions, and we hope that as the national debate clarifies, we will have an opportunity to consider rescheduling the event when the time is right to focus on the themes it celebrates.”

I called my congressman today, I think we all should become envolved in this debate one way or another.

I understand the show has been cancelled. Or at least postponed. It looks like the boycotts worked. My thanks goes out to those who stood up for their rights.

And in the end when i can no longer draw the bow or watch the arrow embark on its flight;when i posses only the spirit of the hunter, i will hunt.... if only in my dreams... because the hunt is born amidst my soul, and i... i am the hunter

I could not expect a different response from them [clapper]

Another reason they are two of my favorite guys [even though I have only recently met them at the past PBS Banquet) I sure wish I had not put our "Meeting" off for so long. [knothead]

The whole their gonna take away are guns bs. In thirty years I have yet to have the sheriff knock on my door or receive a letter to turn in my guns.This is a straw man issue and fearmongering at it's finest.

Don't move to New york or Connecticut and you can keep saying that.
..read some news sometime.

I'm sorry..but when you come on to this site and your first posts are here..on this topic..and this is what you have to say...?

I personally question your motives to be on this site....sure as heck doesn't seem to be to talk about trad bow hunting...

well, you pretty much missed the point of this forum - which is specifically not targeted to be just about trad bowhunting, but hunting in general. it appears that you don't realize nor understand how some political factions are attempting to take away any and all weapons from all americans. but that's ok, we're here to help you understand how your rights are endangered, no one's looking to pick a fight with you, we just want you to see the facts and make up yer own mind.
