The Great Outdoors Expo


The 25,000 square feet of indoor expo and convention center space at the Best Western Timber Creek Inn and SUites in Sandwich will be dedicated to the great outdoors Feb 3-5. It’s the second annual Great Outdoors Fishing, Hunting, Boat, and RV Expo.

One difference between the Chicago outdoor shows and the DeKalb County show is the featuring of some of our finest local fishing professionals. Watch the newest tricks of the trade from atop the 4,000 gallon feature fish tank.  Observe demonstrations of your favorite lure from the fishes’ point of view and right in front of your own eyes.

Hunters eager for upcoming turkey season will want to check out tactics and premier gear & gadgets for spring 2012.  A special turkey hunting seminar will feature a live demonstration on field dressing a turkey as well as cooking techniques. Waterfowl and deer hunters can attend informative seminars designed specifically for them. Be sure to bring the kids!  Timber Creek will host a kids calling contest with prizes for our participants and winners!
