Great Outdoors Show®

The first Atlanta Fisharama was held in February at the Atlanta Civic Center in 1984, later moving to the Lakewood Exhibit Center in 1988, and on to the Atlanta Expo Center in 1991. A spring turkey hunter’s festival was held in conjunction with the 1989 Fisharama featuring the U.S. Open Turkey Calling Championship at the Lakewood Fairgrounds. Fisharama’s were also held at the Augusta Civic Center and Albany Civic Center in February of 1990. In 1990, the Georgia Chapter NWTF came on board at the Lakewood Fairgrounds Fisharama hosting the Turkey Hunters Festival and the Dixie Classic Calling Contest. In 1991, they were held in Atlanta and Augusta with the first Fisharama in Perry at the Georgia National Fairgrounds. Following the 2007 Fisharama/Turkeyrama in Atlanta, Georgia Wildlife Federation made the decision to combine both the Atlanta and Perry Fisharama/Turkeyrama’s into one Great Outdoors Show held each February at the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry, Georgia, where the show continues to date. 

The show is presented by the Georgia Wildlife Federation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and helps fund education and conservation projects benefiting sportsmen.

  

Atlanta Buckarama®

The first Southeastern Buckarama was held at the Atlanta Civic Center in 1984.  In 1987, the show changed locations and moved to the Lakewood Fairgrounds. In 1989, Albany was added to the Atlanta Buckarama, and then Augusta in 1990. In 1991, the Atlanta show moved to the Atlanta Expo Center North, Albany and Augusta locations were discontinued, and the Perry Buckarama  was added at the Georgia National Fairgrounds. The Atlanta Buckarama changed from a three-day event to a four-day event in 1993.  A third Buckarama was again added in Charolotte, North Carolina in 1995 and continued until 1999. The Atlanta Buckarama changed back to a three-day event in 2010. To date, Buckarama tradition remains strong and well attended in both Atlanta and Perry.

The Georgia Wildlife Federation Deer Head Competition has been held in conjunction with the Buckarama since the beginning in 1984. The first GWF Black Powder Shoot, sponsored by CVA, was added to the Perry Buckarama in 1999 and remained in existence through 2006. In 2006, the first Deer Hunters Showdown at High Noon was held in partnership with The Georgia’s Outdoor Adventures Newspaper’s Best Buck Contest. The contest continued under this name until 2008 when it became solely the GWF Grand Shoot as part of the already existing Deer Head Competition.   

The show is held at the Atlanta Expo Center North, I-285 South Exit 55, Jonesboro Rd, Atlanta, Georgia. The dates fall on the first full weekend in August.  The Expo Center is within easy driving distance for at least three million people. This show is a very exhibitor friendly show with most reporting excellent sales.  Plenty of exhibitor lodging is available a short distance away.

The show is presented by the Georgia Wildlife Federation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and helps fund education and conservation projects benefiting sportsmen.
