The SHOT Show comes to a close on day four. If you missed the first three days, we've got it all here on our web site.

Outdoor Life Online Editor

We're here in Las Vegas, Nevada for the S.H.O.T. Show (Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show.) We'll be reporting to you each day of the show from February 9-12.

We'll be walking the hundreds of rows in search of the latest gear a nd other products that we know will help improve your hunting experience. Things such as treestands, the latest in decoys, clothing, optics--you name it.

Check back daily throughout the weekend. Outdoor Life Online will be following Editor Todd Smith as he travels the SHOT Show floor inspecting rifles, boots, and scopes.

We'll also have a few interesting features called "Scene & Heard." We'll work to bring you all the latest from quotes to gear.

We know you wish you could be here so we'll do our best to bring you all the great things the SHOT Show has to offer.
