Vendor Testimonials:

We have did shows all over the southeast for the past 8 years with The Beast Vehicles. When GON decided to do their own show Ted & I Told the staff at GON we would go with them where ever they decide to go. We have never regretted that decision. The show Has always been run Top Notch from top to bottom. I just cant say enough about the staff of their Shows. They make every vendor feel as if they are a part of their family. Very professional, always accommodating, and always greet us with a smile & a hand shake. Hats off to GON Outdoor Blast, Thanks Steve, Mike & Mindy. We look forward every year to this Event...   – Tim & Ted Moore , THE BEAST VEHICLES

This was a really good show for us. We booked 24 hunts and had lots of interest in hog hunting. GON did an amazing job.  – Hal Shouse, Hog S.W.A.T.

This was our second show in Atlanta and our best yet. We booked 16 hog hunts, sold 11 spots on our bird field, and made several good contacts about our services. The show was a huge success for Oconee Ridge Outfitters and we look forward to seeing you guys next year. A special thank you from the Harold A. Deas family and our staff here at Oconee Ridge! Our web site has had 4x the hits since the show! – Rusty Rhodes, Property Manager 

The GON Blast is one of the best venues of all the shows we do. The GON staff and volunteers at the show are always willing to help and do so with a smile. Crowd numbers have always been good. – Jamie Perrie, Hunting-Maps

Well Mindy it's that time of year again! We are all excited here to get Lipstick-n-Lead all packed up and back out on the road. I can't wait to be a vendor again at your show. We met so many nice, caring people at your show, and your employees were so helpful, and went above and beyond to help us. You have an amazing show and we're so happy, and proud to be a part of it AGAIN!!!!!.... Just a little note to tell you how happy we really are. See you in July!!!!!!  –Your Friend Claudyne (Lipstick-n-Lead)

​Fat Boys Golf Carts & Power Sports started participating in the GON Blast approximately ​4 or so years ago and we consider it the "Premiere" Hunting & Fishing Show in the Southeast with the quality and types of vendors that attend. We also have put 99% of our efforts toward the GON by continuing to increase our overall booth sizes to enable us to have various lines that we offer available for the large crowds to view! We have been very satisfied with the return on investment during and after the show is over, we not only secure customers from Georgia but all around the country. If I was going to recommend any event to attend or participate in it would definitely be the GON Blast!!!!   –Hollywood Jerry Green, Fat Boys Golf Carts
