ORONO, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --- If you love hunting or fishing or doing mostly anything outside, you might want to head to the University of Maine in Orono this weekend.

The 75th annual 'Eastern Maine Sportsmen's Show' will be taking place. This year's show will feature more than 150 vendors, including ATV outlets, boat retailers and Maine guides.

Other groups in attendence will be looking for your help. 'House in the Woods' is a program based in Lee Maine. It provides free hunting trips and fishing trips to active duty veterans including many who are disabled from combat wounds. The group will be holding a raffle for a muzzle loader during the sportsmens show. All proceeds raised will go back into supporting 'House in the Woods' hunting programs. In the past three years, they have provided free trips to about 250 active duty vets.

The sportsmen's show will be going at the university through Sunday.
