The following is a Press Release from the WV Trophy Hunters Association
Charleston, WV…After 33 consecutive years, the WV Trophy Hunters Association (WVTHA) was unable to conduct their annual Hunting & Fishing Show last January due to the world-wide Covid-19 pandemic. On Monday, WVTHA officials announced that the popular show is back. The West Virginia Hunting & Fishing Show, which attracts between 15,000-18,000 outdoor enthusiasts during the 3-day show, is scheduled for January 21-23, 2022 at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center.
“We were really disappointed that we were not able to hold our show last year,” stated Sam Kindrick, President of the WVTHA. He added, “But we think after the year off, that this could be our largest attended show to date.”
With over 200 exhibitors, vendors and outfitters from all over the world, the WV Whitetail Hall of Fame, the WV Wildlife Charity Auction, hunting & fishing seminars, children’s Coloring Contest: this show has something for every fan of the outdoors.
All proceeds except for costs to run the show and association operating expenses, are donated to programs that promote or protect hunting, fishing, wildlife, conservation, and related educational activities. From 1995 through 2020 the donations to these causes have exceeded $775,000. In addition, WVTHA makes many “in kind” donations to various organizations. The WVTHA also sponsors a 600-acre Wildlife Study Project in Wirt County, WV. They have raised over $700,000 for that project. While raising funds is important, the primary reason for hosting this show is to bring hunters and fishermen into contact with organizations that can provide them with goods and services related to these activities. The WVTHA is 100% volunteer based.
