Virtual Fishing Simulator

Virtual Fishing Simulator | Cape Fear Wildlife Expo

It even looks impressive as it simulates the deck of a private charter fishing boat, complete with custom rods, quality Penn reels and Pompanett fighting chairs.

Players watch real fishing video footage on wide screen TVs and feel the rod bending action as the fish strikes and runs with the line.

The Virtually Hooked Sport Fishing Simulator is an impressive interactive attraction that leaves a lasting impression. The life-like fishing action accurately simulates the feel of catching the “big one”.

Fish include Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi, Salmon, Smallmouth Bass and Trout. The built-in on-screen scoring system allows anglers to match their fishing skills against each other. Skill-based on-screen scoring adds extra fun and makes it easy to conduct a “virtual fishing tournament” as an added attraction.

Sponsorship for the Virtual Fishing Simulator is $5,000.00 and includes a 10×10 booth space.


Newell Farms Moon Shadow Wolves and Blue Bird Houses

Newell Farms | Cape Fear Wildlife Expo

Newell Farms Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Warrenton has expanded its community outreach program by adding several new animals as it works toward establishing a permanent wildlife education facility here.

Frank Newell, founder and CEO of the wildlife rehabilitation center and president/CEO of the Eastern Bluebird Rescue Group stated that Newell Farms Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Warrenton has expanded its community outreach program by adding several new animals as it works toward establishing a permanent wildlife education facility here.

Coy dogs, like the wildlife center’s Dakotah, are a cross between a coyote and certain breeds of domesticated dogs, such as German police dogs. Center volunteer Michele Shearin said that live wolves are a vital component of the educational programs in order to dispel the image of the large canines as the “big bad wolves” of fairy tales and fables. She teaches about the plight of the wolf over the years, their reintroduction at Yellowstone National Park and wolf family dynamics.

Newell has a lynx named Shawnee and stated that the wild feline would grow to be 40 to 45 pounds as an adult. He has a Nutria named Henry. The web-footed rodents originated in South America, but have spread across the world as a result of domestication.

W.N.C. Mountain Trout Fishing

W.N.C. Mountain Trout Fishing | Cape Fear Wildlife Expo

Portable Fishing Ponds is usually a main attraction at any event. The set up is very family friendly. “We have seen many a child catch their first fish in one of our ponds”, says Jim Hill. “These ponds are a magnet for people’s attention.”

As a vendor, Portable Fishing Ponds will show up on time, will set up with very little need for assistance and will be ready for action on time. There are two types of fish that can be used; trout and catfish. Our fish are kept just a little bit hungry so the odds of people catching fish right off the bat are very high. “We want people to come enjoy themselves at our pond set-ups. Portable Fishing Ponds will be running a very fun and exciting aspect of any show or event that people invite us to. We love malls, sports shows, fishing shows, boat shows, etc. Once invited, you’ll want us back.”

Sponsorship for the portable fishing pond is $10,000.00 and includes booth space.
