The Editors Have Landed

It's great to be here for the opening day of SCI's 42nd Hunters' Convention in Las Vegas, Feb. 5-8! It's already getting crowded here as my husband, Phil Phillips, and I get set to walk the aisles along with an expected 25,000 other international hunters—including more than a few fellow NRA members in the mix like American Hunter Editor-in-Chief Scott Olmsted and our new Executive Director of NRA Publications, Doug Hamlin, and, last but never least, NRA's Wayne LaPierre.

There's certainly something here for everyone as SCI gets set to auction off more than $8 million in world-class hunting and fishing trips, guns and gear this week.  I just picked up my media credentials and am off to start checking out a few of the more than 2,500 exhibitor booths—but I know how intrigued I am with taxidermy and expect I won't make it too far before clogging the aisle as I stop and gawk at all the amazing game mounts.  I'll keep you posted!
