One of the most well attended events the final Sunday of the annual Great American Outdoor Sow at the Pennsylvania State Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg is the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association auction of outdoors-related items ranging from clothing and gear to hunting and fishing trips to raise funds for youth education.

For those who simply are unable to wait to begin attending sports and outdoors shows with the beginning of the New Year, the wait is over.

This week, beginning Friday, Jan. 10, and continuing through Sunday, Jan. 12, the Greater Philadelphia Sportsmen’s Expo has combined with The Fly Fishing and Wingshooting Expo for a three-day event at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks. Previously, the fly fishing/wingshooting event closed the regional run of outdoors shows as a three-day event in the Poconos.
