John Barklow, product manager for the SITKA Big Game lineup, and Jim Saubier, product manager for the Waterfowl systems, will be in store Nov. 6 to talk all things hunting.
We’re also giving away a guided duck hunt for 2 at Oyster Bayou, as well as $500 in Sitka Gear! Barklow will discuss Big Game systems at 11am, and Saubier will go over the Waterfowl lineup at 2pm. We’ll pick the $500 gear winner after Barklow’s talk, and then the guided duck hunt winner after Saubier’s. You must be present to win giveaways.
