The four-day celebration is open to the public and is one of America’s premier fundraisers for conservation. The 2016 DSC convention raised more than $6 million for wildlife programs, public education and hunter advocacy worldwide. The convention also added 450 new members to surpass the 6,000-member mark for worldwide membership.

 

The expo offers 2017’s first opportunity to shop for hunts with top outfitters from around the globe. Displays also include world-class sporting gear, firearms, art, collectibles, entertainment, seminars, auctions and more. Together, attractions cover the space of nearly nine football fields.

 

Each year, we see new and phenomenal growth for the convention,” said DSC Executive Director Ben Carter. “The convention has expanded to include attendees from across the world and will feature some of the most prominent members of the hunting community. We are expecting another great year of fundraising and are looking forward to seeing new faces.
