What is The Great Northwest Outdoor Expo?

The Great Northwest Outdoor Expo; Conservation, Preservation and Growing Future Generations of Leaders

The Great Northwest Outdoor Expo isn’t just focused on highlighting outdoor recreation. Our roots run deep in advocacy to support conservation efforts and the protection of wetlands.  The Great Northwest Outdoor Expo is an event created and run by Idaho Ducks Unlimited raising money to help preserve our treasured lands and protect wildlife.

So what does Ducks Unlimited do? A number of things. With Idaho membership of over seven thousand, Ducks Unlimited nationally works with chapters all over the country to promote education programs, youth programs, volunteer efforts to maintain and conserve wetlands, and raise funds for conservation programs across the state. Last year alone, Ducks Unlimited of Idaho raised over $523,000 dollars for conservation efforts, all through grassroots efforts. These funds were put to work to conserve 33,215 acres of land in Idaho. This outstanding effort could only be made possible through thousands of volunteers working together for a common vision; to keep our beautiful Idaho lands pristine for generations to follow.

Volunteer efforts and raising funds for conservation are just one wing of our efforts. We also promote youth education and a lifetime of knowledge with their Green Wing program. Green Wings works to get kids involved in community programming, volunteer efforts, and outdoor experiences.

Since 1937, DU has conserved more than 14 million acres of waterfowl habitat across North America. These regional initiatives, organized locally, function to connect people and resources with critical habitats, and recognize each region’s role in sustaining the future of waterfowl and our environment.

When you support the Great Northwest Outdoor Expo, know that you are supporting conservation, our wetlands, youth education, and growing the next generation of leadership right here in the great Northwest.

From Grocery Store Anxiety to Hardcore Carnivore; The Jess Pryles Story

From Grocery Store Anxiety to Hardcore Carnivore; The Jess Pryles Story

Jess Pryles wasn’t always a Hardcore Carnivore. She knows what it’s like to be intimidated cooking meat. She used to stand in the grocery store, too nervous to buy expensive meat in fear of messing it up. So, she set out to change all that, diving into educating herself. She spent years to understand the perfect way to prepare and cook all kinds of meat, particularly beef. She learning about cooking methods, what cuts are best and why, the difference between grass fed and grain fed beef, and how aging affects meat. She visited ranches, butchers, harvested it herself, and even attended university for it.

After years of dedicating herself to the craft, Jess Pryles proudly calls herself the Hardcore Carnivore, a well-deserved title.

Since her humble beginnings, Jess has made her mark on the barbecue industry. After falling in love with low’n’slow barbecue in Texas, she decided to spread the word by bringing it home Down Under, in Australia by cofounding the Australian Barbecue Alliance. She has also hosted meat-themed TV shows, judged the biggest barbecue challenge in the world, and has been a guest speaker at the American Meat Science Association conference.

Born in Australia, she now lives in Austin, Texas and is on a mission to show how to cook a perfect piece of meat wherever she goes.

We’re proud to host Jessica Pryles at the Great Northwest Outdoor Expo where she will be hosting an exclusive Live Fire, Gourmet Cooking Class. An interactive, hybrid event – halfway between a class and a deluxe dinner. Guests will be treated to a live demonstration of recipes and techniques, as well as a master tutorial on beef information such as grading and meat selection. Attendees will also have an exclusive opportunity to have all their meat-based questions answered in an intimate and private event with internationally acclaimed meat cook and Hardcore Carnivore, Jess Pryles. The evening will culminate in a luxurious beef dinner on the world-class PK Grills

Discussion on safely dry aging beef at home

Tasting of a dry aged steak

Tips & tricks for beef preparation & cooking

Why is the GNOE in Idaho?

We believe the Northwest is home to not only some of the most stunning outdoors, but also to some of the most passionate outdoor enthusiasts around. Yet despite the great setting, the Northwest region has yet to see this type of expo. That all changes this summer.

This event is hosted by Ducks Unlimited, the world’s leader in wetland and waterfowl conservation for over 80 years now. The organization relies heavily on volunteers; work is done on the backs of hard-working outdoor enthusiasts. Its members are conservationists and outdoor enthusiasts who live primarily throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. Additional conservation groups will be on hand to educate visitors and shine the spotlight on smart environmental practices, and the prolific outdoor adventure opportunities right here in the Great Northwest.

Mond Warren, Ducks Unlimited Regional Director for the State of Idaho, had a vision to host this event in Idaho as a way to inform and educate people on the outdoors. “The northwest is one of the world’s best places for recreationists and outdoor enthusiasts to still experience nature in all of its magnificence,” says Warren. “We were driven to create an outdoor expo that does its best to duplicate that experience and provide vendors and visitors the ultimate opportunity to share their passion for the outdoors.”

Businesses interested in sponsorships and exhibitor booths are encouraged to learn more about the great opportunities available.  Please contact Mond Warren or Drew Allen (Idaho State Publicity Chairman) for additional information.
