11-29-13-Shawn--Luchtel---ImageOLEAN — The Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce announced that the 5th annual Greater Olean Area Outdoor & Rec Sports Show will be held January 2014 at the Good Times of Olean Events Center. The show dates and times are Saturday, Jan. 25, 10 a.m.–5 p.m., and Sunday, Jan. 26, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.

Vendor booths are now available for the annual sports show. At least 50 of the region’s leading businesses are expected to exhibit their wares and services at the upcoming show. The Sports Show brings the passion for the outdoors indoors by bringing outdoor sports enthusiasts of all ages together to view the latest in hunting and fishing gear, shop for ATV’s and snowmobiles, and plan and book hunting and fishing trips with outfitters.

NEW THIS YEAR – Shawn Luchtel, from “Heartland Bowhunter,” will appear both days of the show. From the beginning, “Heartland Bowhunter” was founded with one guiding principle … quality. No matter the service, product or production, quality was going to be the baseline for everything embarked upon. “Heartland Bowhunter” documents the adventures of the team as they bow hunt all over the Midwest for anything from whitetail deer to Canada geese. Join the team throughout Season 6 for some incredible bow hunts from Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, South Dakota, and North Dakota.

Shawn has been in the whitetail woods of Missouri since childhood. He and his father have been hunting together since Shawn was old enough to climb into a tree. He loves pursuing giant whitetails in the Midwest but plans to chase screaming bulls out West in the near future. Although you won’t see him in front of the camera often, his expertise is shown through his cinematography. Shawn has been with HB since the launch of their first DVD and thrives on innovation/creativity in production for seasons to come.

Country Squirrel Outfitters from Ridgway, Pa., will be the show’s official outfitter. They will bring down kayaks, bicycles, hiking supplies, snowshoes and cross country skiing, as well as hunting accessories. CSO will also provide showgoers with the opportunity to demo the snowshoes and skis!

Leisure Time Powersports of Limestone, N.Y., will be the show’s official snowmobile vendor. They will bring down their product lines of snowmobiles and ATVs and accessories. Leisure Time will also give showgoers the opportunity to demo their snowmobiles (weather pending) and ATVs.

Ron’s Gun Shop of Richburg, N.Y., will be back for their fifth straight year of sponsoring the show raffle. Ron’s Gun Shop will display product lines of guns and rifles as well as accessories. The Cattaraugus County Pistol Clerk will be on the floor both days.

CUTCO Cutlery and KA-BAR Knives will also return as a show sponsor and vendor showcasing their wide variety of household and hunting knifes. Other returning sponsors include Microtel Inn of Olean, Premo Limo, and WPIG-FM.

The Greater Olean Area Outdoor & Rec Sport Show is offering outdoor retailers, associations and outfitters the best opportunity to sell merchandise, secure leads, book trips and interact with the outdoor community. Use this show to establish relationships with current and new customers.
