CLEARFIELD – The Central PA Outdoor & Sports Show will return to the Clearfield County Fairgrounds on March 20-22, 2020.

The Arena Training Group, a combat veteran-owned training company and master instructor in critical skills such as law enforcement training, tactics and firearms skills and techniques, firefighting and rescue topics, survival training, and family security and preparedness, will host a seminar as well as a virtual shooting competition.
Making a welcome return to the area is National Pro-staffer and host of Rush Outdoors and Pursuit Channels’ World of Rush, Tim Andrus. Andrus will host “meet and greets” and perform various seminars.
Edson Waite from Buckmasters will also be on hand Saturday and Sunday of the show this year to score both antlers and sheds, and Unified Sportsmen of Pennsylvania will host a CWD forum on Saturday.
