The Fall Hunting Classic, held at the Bass Pro Shops Pearland location, is set for August 21- 30, 2015. This annual event offers free seminars led by nationally recognized professional hunters, special offers, and a chance to win a hunting trip to Argentina with RedHead Pro Hunting Team member and competitive shooter, Doug Koenig.

“The Fall Hunting Classic is a popular and beloved tradition at Bass Pro Shops,” said Jerry Martin, captain of the RedHead Pro Hunting team. “For 28 years, hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts have attended this free event to learn how they can be more successful in the field while staying safe and comfortable with appropriate clothing and gear. Hunters also love to get a firsthand look at all the latest products.”

Many sportsmen and women look forward to the event all year long. This 10-day event is expected to draw more than 100,000 people to participating locations.

During the Fall Hunting Classic, nationally recognized professional hunters, local pros, and outdoorsmen and women will conduct seminars at the stores and answer hunters’ questions.

Free seminars include:

August 21

7 p.m.: Advanced game camera strategies for year-round scouting

The game cameras, boots, and riflescopes will be given to local nonprofit organizations to help with their outdoor education programs.
