DENVER (CBS4)- The International Sportsmen’s Expo is calling on all outdoor enthusiasts.

The show opened Thursday at the Colorado Convention Center.

It features hunting, fishing and camping exhibits from more than 500 companies showcasing their best gear including survival skills, rifle and packing, fly fishing, bow hunting, boats and adventure travel.

You’ll find how to turn your pop-up camper into the ultimate tailgating machine.

There’s also a booth to try your hand at archery by shooting a bow and arrow at several different targets for each skill level.

There’s also a booth to teach kids fishing sponsored by the National Fishing in Schools Program.

“It’s an in-school program designed and developed mostly for 6th through 12th grade. We provide an all-inclusive program that teaches kids how to fish in school during the school day,” said National Fishing in Schools Program spokeswoman Katie Cole. “The program also educates students about insects and flies and fish.”

The International Sportsmen’s Expo is at the Colorado Convention Center through Sunday. Admission is $15 for adults, kids 15 and under get in free.
