What is POMA Camps?

POMA Camps is a day in the field to test drive the newest trucks from Nissan, Ram, and Toyota, take the ARGO for a spin, shoot crossbows and airguns, and much much more. This is the perfect time to gather content with POMA’s Corporate Partners available to show you their products and answer any questions you might have.

What guns are available to shoot at Range Day?

At Range Day our Corporate Partners bring their A game with shotguns, pistols, muzzleloaders, and rifles. We have had everything from Kimber’s .300 Blackout to CVA’s .50 caliber muzzleloader, Bergara’s latest a greatest shooting technology, and even fully automatic weapons. Pistols of every make and model make an appearance and the shotguns never disappoint. Ammunition manufacturers including Winchester and Aguila make sure there is no shortage of lead headed downrange.

Who can I network with?

At POMA, you can network with everyone, and we mean everyone. From industry leading magazine editors, film producers, photographers, writers, Corporate Partners, social influencers and more. If you’ve ever thought, I wish I had their email, you can probably track it, and better yet its owner down at our convention.

I am a student, should I still attend?

YES! POMA members are always looking to bring new professionals into the industry and mentor young media producers. As long as you are 18, POMA is among the best places to get your foot in the door of the outdoor industry. Reach out as we often have scholarship opportunities.
