On April 9 I gave a turkey hunting clinic at Grouse River Outfitters in Kelowna, British Columbia. From 2 pm until store closing I provided information about hunting strategies, calling tips and calling demonstrations with a variety of different calls. Plus tips on where and how to find turkeys.
The event was a huge success as hunters from all over the area flocked to the store. After the event Justin, the Grouse River Outfitter store manager, sent me an e-mail to tell me how pleased everyone was and that due to the success the management would like to hold another in-store event in the coming fall.
In Store hunting clinics are good advertising for the company and serve as a special service that customers appreciate. The big box stores like Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shop have known for a long time that in store events are a big draw. Slowly it is catching on with smaller sporting goods stores too.
If you know of a store or are a store owner that would enjoy having a similar event please get in touch with me by email; OthmarV@shaw.ca I still have a few fall dates available and would be more than happy to discuss the available options with you.
Glenn Fallis, owner and president of Grouse River Outfitters (right), is happy about the turnout of customers and the success of the event.
Groups of customers soon gathered around to get tips on turkey hunting tactics, calling and watch product demonstrations.
