It's everything a hunter could want.

Turkey calls, wildlife gear, hunting guns and more.

The Georgia Wildlife Federation puts on its' 2014 Buckarama show, drawing hundreds of hunters and outdoor enthusiasts from all over the state and the southeast.

The wildlife federation uses the proceeds from the show to support a big cause.

"They use the Buckarama as a way to generate funds for the Georgia wildlife, hunting education, help clean up rivers, streams and lakes," said taxidermist Ray Knight.

Fairgrounds officals say revenue has increased with close to 14-thousand visitors arriving in the past two days.

Buckarama and the NBHA Youth World Championships bring in the most revenue all year at the fairgrounds and with one day left, officials anticipate it more money coming in.

The event is not limited to just hunter equipment, jewelry, clothing, and belts are on the list too.

There are even real live animal accessories like large red tail boa constrictors.

In addition to seeing the animals, adults and children can attend educational seminars that are hosted throughout the day.

Buckarama continues through Sunday afternoon until 7 p.m.

Admission is eight dollars for adults and five dollars for seniors and children ages 6 to 12.

The next show will be in February.
