I own & operate Great West Outdoors in Nebraska offering turkey & deer hunts.
Never done a trade show, have not felt the need for it. I use a hunt broker to list hunts through and between him and my return clients I receive enough guests per year for what my ground and critters can handle.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
