Toronto Sportsmen's Show

A quick tour of some of the highlights of the CNSS Toronto Sportsmen's Show. This is strictly a personal tour, featuring some things which caught my eye while visiting #TSS16 at the International Centre Wednesday, March 16, 2016.

  1. The main entrance to the show features displays by Canadian taxidermists, and some of the work is visually stunning! It also features a competition taking place over the weekend. A great way to get into the show right off the bat.
  2. Hello deer! Main entrance at Toronto Sportsmen's Show. Lots of mounted animals as you enter International Centre Hunting Hall. #outdoors #deer #deerhunting #tss16 #torontoevents #wildlife

  3. After the hunt ... Some of the Canadian Taxidermists' Assn best work on display in #Toronto. A lot more than just deer heads, though there are lots of those. #trapping #hunting #wildlife #tss16 #taxidermy

  4. Unlike some smaller versions of the Sportsmen's Show (including Ottawa) the Toronto show features very large areas for fishing, hunting, camping and other outdoors pursuits. It's a lot more than just boating, which certainly tends to dominate the Ottawa version of the show. There are always lots of new, innovative lures and tackle to check out.

  9. Fishing seminars are always really popular. And, they give weary patrons a chance to sit down in front of the numerous stages. Here's Ottawa legend 'Big Jim' McLaughlin up on the Pro Fishing Seminar stage, right next to the large Fish TV area.
  10. Ottawa's Big Jim McLaughlin is a fishing legend. Still packs em in on the Fishing Stage. #fishing #justfishing #bigjim #tss16 #fishingtips #iphone

  11. 'Birds of Prey' exhibits always draw big crowds. This year the Canadian Peregrine Foundation has an extensive collection of raptors on display, and you can really get up-close-and-personal with these beautiful, majestic creatures and their handlers.
  12. No outdoors show is complete without the birds of prey. Stunning raptors, incl. this owl, from Canadian Peregrine Foundation. #birds #outdoors #owl #raptors #birdsofprey #tss16 #toronto

  15. Dozens of outfitters from Ontario, Quebec, across Canada and even around the world have booths set up to cater to all ttypes of outdoors travellers. This end-of-day view was not typical of the large amount of activity you'll see here during the busy parts of the days.
