Outdoor enthusiasts of all levels are invited to attend an Outdoorsman Swap Meet on Saturday, Sept. 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Tippy Dam Recreation Area in Brethren (Manistee County). This is the perfect opportunity to exchange hunting and fishing gear - as well as a few stories - with fellow sportsmen.

Tippy Dam Recreation Area is a popular place for anglers and sportsman in the fall, and the Outdoorsman Swap Meet is an opportunity for people to trade items for an entirely new outdoor experience. In the spirit of the outdoors, the swap meet will occur rain or shine.

Anyone interested in selling gear at the swap meet can visit www.michigan.gov/tippydam and click Tippy Dam Recreation Area Events, locate the Sept. 14 Outdoorsman Swap Meet listing, and download, fill out and submit the online vendor signup sheet. The signup sheet may also be filled out at Tippy Dam Recreation Area. For more information about this event please call 231-848-4880. Please email signup forms to [email protected], fax them to 231-869-4725, or return them to the park.

Tippy Dam Recreation Area is located at 1500 Dilling Road, in Brethren. Park amenities include a boat launch, cross-country ski trails, hiking trails, fishing, camping and more. Although there is no charge for entry to the Outdoorsman Swap Meet, a Recreation Passport is required for entry to Tippy Dam Recreation Area.

The Recreation Passport is an easy, affordable way for residents to enjoy and support outdoor recreation opportunities in Michigan. By checking "YES" for the $11 Recreation Passport ($5 for motorcycles) when renewing a license plate through the Secretary of State (by mail, kiosk, online at www.expresssos.com or at branch offices), Michigan motorists get access to state parks, recreation areas, state forest campgrounds, nonmotorized state trailhead parking and state boat launches. In addition, Recreation Passport holders can enjoy real savings at businesses and retailers that participate in the Passport Perks discount program. The Recreation Passport is valid until the next license plate renewal date. Nonresidents can purchase the Recreation Passport ($30.50 annual; $8.40 daily) at any state park or recreation area or through the Michigan e-Store at www.michigan.gov/estore.

Learn more about this creative way of sustaining Michigan's outdoor recreation and natural resources at www.michigan.gov/recreationpassport. For information on Passport Perks shopping discounts or how businesses and retailers can enroll in the program, visit www.michigan.gov/passportperks.

Come up n out folks. We only have a few tables registered but we won't turn away same day arrivals.

You must supply your own tables, no firearms allowed.

I'll have my own table with several sets of arrows, broad heads, turkey/deer calls, couple summit climbers, etc.

So come buy sell or trade your fishing and hunting gear.

I know we'll have one table setup with a guy who ties flies to order. He can whip up a decent fly in under a minute all done by hand.

Live from the stand...
