Not all hunters go hunting for the sport of it or for the meat—some plan hunting trips specifically for bringing home animal trophies. Whatever your fancy and your hunting level, know there is something for every hunter at hunters’ conventions and shows around the country. One such convention is the Safari Club International (SCI) show in Las Vegas.
The upcoming SCI Hunters’ Convention, which will take place January 31 thru February 3, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada, has been described as the ultimate sportsmen’s market. This show offers everything a hunter could ask for and dream of—you can talk to leading people in the industry, book your next hunt or hunting safari, shop for the latest hunting guns, equipment and other products and take advantage of educational and informative seminars. It is also the perfect place to meet up with old hunting friends and make new ones!
Here are six great reasons to attend SCI’s annual hunters’ convention in 2018 in Las Vegas, from your experts in taxidermy in Cody, WY:
- Meet hunting trip companies: Whether you want your next hunting trip to be in the area, out of state or even in another country, a hunters’ convention is an excellent place to meet hunting and safari tour companies. Collect business cards, ask questions, get trip pricing and so much more, all at a single event.
- Meet other hunters: The SCI and other popular hunters’ conventions can be a great opportunity to meet up with old friends and get acquainted others in the hunting community. There will undoubtedly be people new to hunting at these conventions who’ll be looking to hear your trip stories, and if you two (or a group) hit it off, this could be the beginning of a strong friendship.
- Check out new hunting gear: Hunting shows are the prime time to check out the latest and greatest in guns and hunting gear and equipment. There will be a number of booths set up displaying gear, and even company representatives on the stage or on speaker systems discussing the benefits of their products.
- Get hands-on: While buying hunting gear online is convenient, you don’t get the chance to touch or try out anything. Hunting revolves a lot around touch—holding guns, handling knives, tying knots, etc.—so if you get the opportunity to be hands-on, don’t miss out!
- Learn about hunting: Hunters’ conventions are not just for veteran hunters. In fact, many newcomers to the world of hunting can benefit from attending these types of shows. Or, if it’s been some time since your last hunt, treat conventions as a refresher!
- Meet taxidermists: Unless you’re a seasoned hunter or a taxidermist, you may not know that businesses and individuals that practice taxidermy in Cody, WY regularly frequent hunting conventions as exhibitors. Not familiar with taxidermy? This event would be a good time to meet professional taxidermists and learn what they do.
