You guys were awesome, I've been doing shows for 16 years and have never experienced a staff that did so much for the vendors. I am a South Alabama outfitter and I booked 14 hunts. I  am definitely booked for 2013.     Rex Pritchett, Great Southern Outdoors

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.

Amazing show, incredible turnout. GON is awesome and great to work with. We had a great show and can't wait for 2013.     Donnie Oden, Oden Outfitters
