The West Texas Hunting & Outdoorsman Expo is Coming to San Angelo June 7th, 8th & 9th

The biggest hunting and outdoors expo is coming to the San Angelo Coliseum, and just in time for Father's Day. The expo is June 7th, 8th and 9th with over 100 vendors participating. Americans spend over 145 billion dollars annually on hunting, fishing and the great outdoors, so it makes sense that businesses that cater to the outdoorsman will gather their collective resources to keep more of those dollars here locally. Mark your calendar, start saving your mad money and put on some comfortable walking shoes because it appears that the West Texas Hunting & Outdoorsman Expo will be a lot of fun.
