Features the annual Miss Outdoors pageant and muskrat skinning contest, as well as other competitions and demonstrations.
At the first National Outdoor Show in 1938, George North became the first World Champion Muskrat Skinner. A women’s championship event was held for the first time in 1940 but was forced to take a hiatus from 1942–1945 due to World War II. It resumed in 1946 and has continued without interruption ever since. The Miss Outdoors Pageant was introduced in 1954 and has always shared top billing with the skinning contest.
