Bass Pro Shops Fall Hunting Classic, held Aug. 1 – 17, is as much a tradition as swapping hunting stories around the campfire.

DESTIN —The Fall Hunting Classic, at 4301 Legendary Drive in Destin and 62 other Bass Pro Shops stores throughout the U.S. and Canada, is set for Aug. 1 to Aug. 17, 2014. This annual event offers free seminars led by nationally recognized professional hunters, special offers, and a chance to win the "Once in a Lifetime Hunting Trip."

"August is the perfect time for Bass Pro Shops to host our Fall Hunting Classic because hunters are champing at the bit to get ready for fall," said Tammy Sapp, Bass Pro Shops communications director. "We've been hosting this event for more than 20 years now so it's as much a part of fall traditions as campfires and swapping hunting stories. The event is popular because hunters know they can expect to learn valuable hunting tips at our free seminars and shop a huge selection of the latest gear, clothes and boots."

During the Fall Hunting Classic, nationally recognized professional hunters, local pros and outdoorsmen and women will conduct seminars at the stores and answer hunters' questions. Seminar topics will include: hunting big game near home, camo patterns matter, how to cook venison, and new strategies for fall hunting success. ***(Check local store listings for pros, topics, dates and times).
