Unicoi will be here before you know it. This year we have elected to have vendors on the second floor as well. These vendors WILL NOT be call makers!! This floor will be made up of people that custom make a hunting related item. EX: box call holsters, choke tube makers, wood suppliers, longbow and re-curve bow builders, turkey totes and etc. We will not have production camo bags, production slings, camo clothing and etc. Everything must me custom made. No flea market stuff!

If you know of anyone that fits this bill and is interested, please have them to contact me at 912-531-1845.
Thanks, Mark Sharpe

Ok, here's the scoop!! Unicoi has 46 rooms for Thursday night, 15 rooms for Friday night and 17 rooms for Saturday night!! If you want a room you'd better move now!! Come December those rooms will be gone!!!!

Also, we are going to do the buffet again Friday night!! Ms. Chambers has told me they have a new cook, a better cook, than last year. She assured me the issue with the other room not being opened and the running out of food will not happen this year!!! They have the capability of seating about 180 people there. She is offering the same deal as last year...$14.95/person plus tax. I would like to get a head count of those wanting to partake in this buffet! I wish all vendors would show their support atleast one night to Unicoi for helping make this happen!!!

Also, you new guys that were coming to set up downstairs, will be set up in the lobby on the same floor as the call makers. Ms. Chambers neglected to hold the downstairs. She had told me she would until 90 days out. When I called to tell her we were wanting it as well, she said she had you guys set up in the lobby of the third floor. I think you will like this better any way!!!

We will still be holding the box call makers round table downstairs though!!! We will have a premier lineup of call makers there for you to ask questions of and for them to give their thoughts on how box call making has changed down through the years!! If you see Andy (Drew) Garrett at the show, thank him for this idea!!! I'm looking forward to it myself and looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones come January!!

Foks, when you call Unicoi State Park and Lodge to reserve a room, be sure to tell them you are coming for the Unicoi Turkey Show. I called tonight like I was reserving a room. They told me no rooms were available. I asked how could that be because I had talked to Ms Chambers and knew exactly how many rooms were left. I was told it was because those rooms were blocked out for the show!! So...if you need a room, be sure to tell them Unicoi Turkey Show. This also gets you the discounted price!!

It's a long time to wait till you can hunt, might as well come out and enjoy yourself with some other turkey hunters. Get those new calls now, you'll have them working right by then. These calls aren't made in China.
