SAN ANTONIO -- The Fall Hunting Classics are a tradition at Bass Pro Shops and an event that nearly 7 million people are expected to attend this year. Why is this important? “Because hunting is big business,” said Bass Pro Shops spokeswoman Katie Mitchell.

And, indeed it is. A report by the Congressional Sportsmen Foundation cites America’s 34 million hunters and anglers are an economic powerhouse -- spending some $8.6 million an hour. If this $76 billion-a-year industry were a corporation, it would be among America’s 20 largest, ahead of Target, Costco, and AT&T.

“The Bass Pro Shops Fall Classic is a huge event and hunters and other outdoor sportsmen and -women look forward to it all year long,” Mitchell said. “Outdoor enthusiasts will be able to learn the secret techniques and strategies used by professionals to gain a better advantage in the field, see all the latest products, and attend workshops and seminars.”

This 17-day event will be held Aug. 5-21 at 52 Bass Pro Shops retail locations across the United States and Canada, and it is all free.

Some of the special events during the Bass Pro Shops 2011 Fall Hunting Classic include:

•Bass Pro Shops Free Hunting University featuring nationally recognized professional hunters and outdoorsmen.

•Binocular, Scope, and Bow Trade-In -- Trade in your old pair of binoculars, scope, or bow, and save on a new purchase.

•Hunter Appreciation Weekend -- Learn tips and techniques for a more successful day in the field by attending free seminars.

•ATV Test Drive -- Try out suspension and steering capabilities of ATVs.

In addition, customers will be able to register for a sweepstakes to win a grand prize of a Colorado Wilderness Elk Hunt sponsored by Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
