Your first look inside the massive new Buc-ee’s Calhoun: 

Compile a list of the most popular activities here in North Georgia, and it’s a sure bet that hunting and fishing will make the cut.  And this weekend, an event celebrating "everything outdoors" will likely be a big draw for those dreaming of that next trophy bass or 10 point buck. 

The Ag-Pro Georgia Outdoor News Outdoor Blast presented by Georgia Drives Chevy returns this weekend, taking over the LakePoint Sports Complex in Emerson Friday through Sunday.  This is a new venue for the annual show, which brings in hundreds of hunting and fishing vendors showcasing the latest products and services on the market.  

Along with the shopping — and there is a lot of shopping — weekend activities include daily shows with Southern Reptile Rescue’s Jason Clark, Duncan Dobie’s famed Georgia’s Greatest Whitetails display, and the Chevrolet Ride and Drive Experience. 

Hours for this year’s Ag-Pro GON Outdoor Blast are 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday; single day tickets are $10, and kids ages 12 and under get in for free. The LakePoint Champions Center is located just off of Interstate 75 at exit 283 in Emerson.
