Safari Club International Convention

Toady marks the opening day of the Safari Club International Convention in Reno, NV.  Jan 23-26 visitors will be able to increase their knowledge on the costs and benefits of going on a wide variety of safari hunts around the world.  Whether you have the need to travel to Africa to hunt or to the Amazon to fish this is the place to acquire all the information you need to have a successful trip.  Though we will warn you that many of these trips can cost in excess of tens of thousands of dollars, you might just take it as an experience of a lifetime.  We hope that if you have had the opportunity to travel abroad to hunt or fish that you might show us some of your photos and help us start a dialogue with our members about the ups and downs of a safari hunt.  To learn more about the convention visit www.showsci.org.
