An outdoor game fair? Sounds like a renaissance festival to me, right? Upon further investigation this event seems like the perfect weekend before deer season opens! Shooting, Archery, ATV’s and fishing? Have I died and gone to heaven? I haven’t even mentioned canoe rentals, the equestrian village, the sporting dog breads or the hiking. Located just outside of Atlanta at the Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club, the EPIC Outdoor Game Fair has captured my attention.
Hosted by Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) and Quail Unlimited (QU), EPIC Outdoor Game Fair will provide hands-on activities bringing outdoor sporting Education, Participation, Instruction and Competition to families, youth and individual enthusiasts. The three-day event is September 23-25, 2011 at the Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club just outside of Atlanta, GA.
