April 23rd-27th, 2019
At Pheasant Run Resort in St Charles, IL

As the largest gathering of its kind in North America, this is the "granddaddy" of all hunting and fishing collectibles shows. Held at the spacious Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois, the week begins as early as Monday with Room-to-Room trading in over 300 rooms followed by a two-day, 700 lot decoy auction on Thursday and Friday - culminating in the Friday-Saturday table event in the Mega Center at Pheasant Run Resort. 

All told, the over 1,400 sporting collectibles enthusiasts in attendance will have an opportunity to view, learn about and buy over 30,000 decoys and other related collectible items throughout the week. You can choose to attend all events of the events, or choose those that match your interest and schedule.

The Friday-Saturday Mega Center table event features nearly 350 member tables filled with decoys, sporting art, shell boxes, calls, fishing lures, signs and more from North America's most experienced dealers, all ready to share their expertise and knowledge of these great American folk art items. Show hours run from 2:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday and from 9:00am to 2:00pm on Saturday. 

We welcome the general public's attendance at the Show. The event includes a number of activities including decoy carving demonstrations, antique decoy displays, raffles, and free appraisals of decoys and other sporting collectibles. So bring along one of your favorite items and you just might learn it's worth more than you think. So, come join the fun! Hope to see you there!
