Hi gang, Rick again from Used Pontoon Boats. Another boat show, the fourth of its kind since December, is headed to Nashville. The Nashville Boat Show is Feb. 8-10 at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.
Nearly 200 boats — including fishing, sporting yacht, pontoon, and personal watercraft — will be on display along with about 100 exhibits.
The show begins Feb. 8 at noon. Admission is $6 adults, $3 ages 7-14, free for ages 6-under.
Big Buck contest: Winner of the Bass Pro Shops and Tennessee Outdoor News Big Buck Contest will be awarded Saturday at the store in Opry Mills mall.
Scoring begins at 10 a.m.
“Last year we had an unbelievable turnout and the tables were pouring over with antlers that would make hunters in the Midwest proud,’’ said official scorer Tony Smotherman, editor of Tennessee Outdoors News.
Five of the top antlers scored from three categories — archery, muzzleloader and center-fire — will be officially scored the day of the contest. Prizes go to the top three in each category.
Call 514-5200 or visit basspro.com for more information.
No wake meeting: The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has scheduled a public meeting for Feb. 5 to discuss a proposal to widen the no wake zone on Percy Priest Lake in the cove near the YMCA camp.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Stones River Hunter Education Building at 2618 Hobson Pike.
“There is an existing no wake zone already there, but we want to widen the zone because we plan to use it as a major part of a boating safety education effort beginning this summer,’’ TWRA boating education coordinator Jeff Winfree said.
“Fishing and other boating recreation will still be allowed. We have plans to educate thousands of youngsters … about boating safety and this cove will play a major role in our classes.”
