Next year's 3 day show will be even better! Please come back for more details...
Welcome to P.B.M. Productions. Lehigh Valley Sportsman Show started at Castle Gardens in Dorney Park 27 years ago. With the growth of the show, it moved to Ag Hall, Allentown Fairgrounds. P.B.M. has been in existence for over 25 years and has conducted many shows at Ag Hall. The Sportsman Show will be a three day event with Hunting and Fishing Outfitters from all over the United States, Canada and Africa. Consultants will be available to help you plan your next sporting adventure. Numerous seminars will be featured throughout the show.
This event has a strong focus on youth and bringing back our heritage of hunting, fishing and outdoor life. Some of the organizations that are represented are Keystone Elk County Alliance, Delaware River Shad Fishermen's Association, Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, Lehigh County Fish and Game Protective Association, Pennsylvania Game Commission, Lehigh Valley Branch of Quality Deer Management, Little Lehigh Chapter of Trout Unlimited and The Lehigh River Stocking Association.
In addition, consultants will be available representing a variety of guides and outfitters to meet one-on-one with those looking to plan their next outdoors sporting adventure.
If the adventure that one seeks is a hunting trip, there is a variety of game species to choose with outfitters representing all geographic areas of the United States, Canada and Africa. For those looking for a fishing trip, there are guides and charter boat captains from the East Coast that can put anglers on everything from trout and bass to saltwater species.
For those looking to upgrade their outdoor equipment, there will be vendors selling guns, archery equipment, fishing tackle and other items. There are also vendors for such big-ticket items as boats, motor homes, campers, log homes and ATV’s.
