After a two year absence, Oklahoma City is getting a winter tackle show but with a new promoter and at a new location
The Oklahoma Tackle and Hunting Show will be Jan. 28-30 at the Cox Convention Center.
The Oklahoma Tackle Show, held each February for 29 consecutive years at the state fairgrounds, was one of the premier tackle shows in the Southwest.
In its heyday, the Oklahoma Tackle Show attracted huge crowds, as many as 30,000 visitors over the Valentine’s Day weekend.

years. Hue Wiersig, the man most responsible for the show, died in 2006 and the show was taken over by an Indiana promoter.
Blaming the economy, that promoter canceled the show the last two years.
Now, Montgomery Productions is bringing a tackle show to the Cox Convention Center the same weekend as the Winter Boat Show at the state fairgrounds.
In addition to tackle and hunting guides, the Oklahoma Tackle and Hunting Show is advertising knife dealers, a dog show, fishing seminars, a kids fishing pond, kids archery shooting, blue grass music, a wild turkey calling contest and more.
