FoxPro backs Renovo outdoors show

RENOVO – Lewistown-based FoxPro is reaching out to a northcentral Pennsylvania town to sponsor its outdoors show next month.

FoxPro, a nationally known predator call maker, is presenter of the show at Citizen’s Hose Co. on Aug. 23.

The shows hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in and outside the fire hall at 415 4th St.

This year the event will feature more than 20 vendors from turkey call makers, predator call makers, local retail businesses, custom trail cam makers, hunting lights, custom fly rod makers, fly tying, outdoor related organizations, trapping suppliers and more.

FoxPro became the major sponsor thanks in part to its field staff member Kirk McKendree, a predator hunter with the company.

McKendree will hold a seminar as well, from 2 to 4 p.m.

McKendree has a huge Internet following from social media and online forums. Hevi-Shot, ammunition company and another sponsor of McKendree, will be there with him.

In addition to McKendree, master falconer Fran Gray, of Centre County, will give a seminar from 11 a.m. to noon.

Admission and seminars are free, with limited seating.

A number of prizes will be raffled off.
