BONNERS FERRY Lines of vendors selling an array of gun-related items, from rifles, to ammunition, to jewelry made from bullet casings, and much more, all gathered at the Boundary County Fairgrounds last Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Feb. 7-9, for the Kootenai Valley Sportsman Association (KVSA) annual Gun & Horn Show.
A new lineup of KVSA officers took the helm for the first time running the show. New KVSA President, Rhome DesBiens, was voted into the position last December. Also joining him were new Vice President Kathy Wenzel, Director Kevin Dye, and Treasurer Rob Wenzel.
The Gun & Horn show, now in its 27th year, was packed with both vendors and attendees.
We had a total of 90 tables, which equaled a packed house, said DesBiens.
Walt Dinning managed the horn contest that featured Boone & Crocket Certified Scoring. Horns and mounts lined walls and tables.
It was a huge success, said DesBiens about the event. Weve received very positive feedback from vendors and attendees. Walt Dinning did an outstanding job managing the Horn Show too.
DesBiens has plans in moving forward in his position as president of the KVSA.
As President, Id like to provide more opportunities for our children to get involved with the shooting sports, like hunting, shooting trap, competitive shooting and firearms safety, he said. As well as our continued partnership with Idaho Fish and Game teaching hunter safety classes.
