Fall hunting is in full swing for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere and for those lucky enough to draw a tag or that have booked a hunt, I hope you’ve had your chance to harvest a monster buck, bull or ram.
When you have a moment between days afield, be sure to register for the 2016 SCI Annual Hunters’ Convention. Online Registration is open and more convenient than ever. Visit www.showsci.org to register and take advantage of early bird discounts.
The Ultimate Hunters’ Market® Feb. 3 – 6 has the best exhibitors from around the world, pulse-pounding daily live auctions and informative seminars covering any number of topics related to hunting and the outdoors. In addition, our show is a great place to meet all of your friends and plan your next great outdoor adventure.
On the auction front, we have a fabulous rifle up for bid. Blaser has donated an engraved Sauer 404 that will be on display for the first time at the Annual Hunters’ Convention. This rifle is perfect for any hunting situation, allowing you to shoot all 13 available calibers with interchangeable barrels and jump from standard to magnum calibers in minutes.
The classic wood and metal construction distinguishes the 404, and you will appreciate the many features this rifle offers. The winning bidder will have the opportunity to purchase additional barrels from Sauer. For more details about this rifle and other items up for bid, visit the Auctions Page.
Craig Boddington, along with several other experts, will once again conduct Your First African Safari. This longstanding seminar discusses the things you should expect to encounter, trophy importation, the ever-present red tape when travelling with firearms and trophies and the finer points of traveling to Africa.
Ira Stutzman will conduct a seminar about fly-fishing for beginners and women. Stutzman has been making custom rods for over 50 years and he will talk about the proper equipment, safety and technique for the next great fly-fishing adventure.
