Sportsman's Expo is back and better than ever. This year's hunting, fishing and outdoors show -- the biggest in the Ark-La-Tex -- will turn the Shreveport Convention Center into an a true Sportsman's Paradise.

The Townsquare Media Sportsman's Expo presented by MetroPCS and powered by S3 Powersports happens Aug. 22-24, and boasts a weekend full of amazing special appearances, food, family fun, activities and as much outdoors-related stuff as we can pack into the spacious Shreveport Convention Center.

This year, the DeRamus family, stars of the hit History TV show "Cajun Pawn Stars," will be hanging out in Shreveport to meet fans, take pictures, appraise items and will even bring along some special items fans of the show just might recognize.

We're also bringing back the death-defying Texas Snake Man Jackie Bibby, who wowed attendees at last year's event with some giant snakes and scary stunts. What will he do this year? We can't wait to find out!

Three-time All-Pro football star Bert Jones will also be at the show Saturday, August 23. The Ruston native and his dad were the first-ever father-son duo to be induced into the Hall of Fame.

The Bayou State Bow Hunters Archery Tournament will be at Sportsman's Expo to challenge attendees skills with the bow and arrow.

And for families with little hunters, we're bringing back some popular Sportsman's Expo standouts: Fetch N Fish dog shows, inflatable bounce houses and a trout pond are all making a return at this year's Sportsman's Expo show.

Long-time B.A.S.S. and Redfish ProBASS angler O.T. Fears will also be at the show.

Finally, we're topping it off with some great music Friday night courtesy of local favorites Cody Cooke and the Bayou Outlaws and Tildon Gillum.
