MERIDIAN —     The Mississippi Wildlife Federation's 27th Extravaganza is set for August 2 – 4, 2013. Friday's hours are 3 to 9, Saturday 9 to 7 and Sunday 10 to 5. The Friday program is designed with kids in mind.

    There is a need for volunteers to help manage many phases of the huge event. Help is needed for such activities as show set-up, admissions, Big Buck Contest/Magnolia Records Program display, golf car drivers, information booth, MWF membership booth, Mississippi Hunter's Harvest, show break down and others. To volunteer, e-mail, or phone 601-605-1790 for complete information. Volunteers will receive a Volunteer T-shirt to be worn while working. Jobs are available for one or all three days of the Extravaganza.

    Bass Pro Shop's Fall Hunting Classic kicks off August 2 with their sale prices on much of their outdoor gear and wall to wall programs ongoing to attract hunters, anglers, campers and other outdoor enthusiasts. On Sunday, August 4, beginning at two p.m., host of Easton Bowhunting and Predator Nation TV shows, Fred Eichler, will speak on "Dangerous Situations." At four p.m. Lee and Tiffany Lakosly will answer questions. 

    Outdoors enthusiasts will be able to visit both the Wildlife Extravaganza and Bass Pro Shops Fall Classic with one trip to the Jackson area.
