SCI Not Just For High-End Safari Goers as Whitetail and Western Big Game Hunters Flood Convention

posted on February 4, 2016

A one million-square-foot show floor, 20,000 hunters from all walks of life, 1,200 exhibitors from 33 countries, 1,150 live and silent auction items and multiple auctions, lunches, seminars, dinners and live entertainment make the 2016 SCI Hunters' Convention a must-experience hunters' event. And I didn't even mention the 110 taxidermists who are here displaying their world-class life-sized game mounts in their booths and on the show floor. I promise you've never seen anything like it!

In a nutshell, the SCI show is a four-day, 24/7 all-hunting extravaganza. Come and have some fun, share your personal hunting stories with hunting buddies new and old, and check out all the cool products showcased in an exhibit hall as far as the eye can see. And with donated auction items valued from $10 to $100,000-plus, there's something to catch your eye for every budget. Take pride in being a hunter as the event raises millions for SCI's wildlife conservation and hunter advocacy efforts. As you walk around the show, be on the lookout for SCI President Larry Higgins. He said he wants to meet as many SCI members here as possible. With 20,000 attendees he has his work cut out for him!
