Sporting good swap meet scheduled at Nature Center


The third annual Sporting Goods Swap Meet (formerly Sporting Collectibles Show) will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Gov. Mike Huckabee Delta Rivers Nature Center.

Outdoorsmen can buy, sell and trade old and new hunting, fishing and outdoor gear. The public is invited to bring as many items as they like. They can reserve a table for free if they want to set up a table to sell for the full meet.

No firearms will be allowed at the swap meet. Shooting equipment and gun parts are allowed but no firearms. Hunters with camping gear, hunting clothes and archery equipment are encouraged to attend. An appraiser will be available to price old duck calls and old fishing lures.

Items can be donated to the nature center. Those items will be sold or passed on to someone who might need them. Kids camo clothes are a good example. They will be donated to a young hunter in need. Items can be dropped off at the nature center or in Stuttgart at Mayn-Mart.

Immediately following the swap meet, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission small game biologist Clifton Jackson will present a seminar on squirrel hunting beginning at 1:30 p.m.
