More than 200,000 people are expected to attend this year's Great American Outdoor Show at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg. The show, which runs through Sunday, Feb. 11, celebrates hunting, fishing and outdoor traditions.

Among the show's features: Hunters and fishermen can find guides from all over the world; archers can take part in the 3D Bowhunter Challenge and Spot Shoot; and there is a taxidermy competition. There's also a dock dog diving demonstration, children can try their luck at catching trout in the kids' trout pond, and people can experience the shooting sports at the NRA Range Experience.
