As a young boy, Will Primos couldn’t wait until he was old enough to tag along on Primos family duck hunts. In 1963, an 11-year old Will crafted his first duck call, and the rest is history. From that first effort evolved what is now heralded as the most accurate, most reliable call on the market, the legendary Primos Hunting Call. Today Primos Hunting makes calls for every variety of game species in North America, along with blinds, trail cameras, and hundreds of other hunting products. In 1986 Will produced his first video, “Spring Turkey Hunting with Primos.”
Dozens more videos followed over the years, with popular series focused on hunting deer, elk, turkeys, predators, waterfowl, and a variety of big game. Will’s weekly TV show, PRIMOS TRUTH ABOUT HUNTING, made its debut with Outdoor Channel’s original slate of shows, and quickly became a fan favorite. While the team still hunts far and wide, this season finds Will and company getting back to their roots, hunting whitetails in the Mississippi Delta and Mississippi River bottomlands, just as he did in his youth.
Jason Reynolds is a nationally recognized entertainer and dog trainer. Jason puts on a family fun dog show that is aimed at getting the kids involved. “We just get the kids involved. All about getting kids involved in the outdoors.”
Families show up by the hundreds for this event, so be sure to get there early to ensure you will have a spot near the Fetch-n-fish tank. This is a show you won't want to miss.
The highlight of the show, Jason says, is obviously the dogs. His trained labs will warm your hearts and bring joy to you when you see them fly through the air into the Fetch-n-Fish tub.
The dogs show off on the ground and in the water taking a splash in the giant tub. Jason's trained retrievers follow close instruction and can jump more than 30 plus feet into the water — It is amazing! Jason also uses live fish during the demonstration at the fish tub seminars to teach visitors casting and a variety of fishing techniques.
Come meet Cheeto, Dorito, Frito, Jackpot and Boondock and enjoy Jason's fishing seminars throughout the Mississippi Wildlife Extravaganza schedule.
