Denver in January? Of course! Please consider this your personal invitation to attend the International Sportsmen’s Exposition taking place Jan. 7-10, at the Convention Center, particularly the 9th and 10th when you have the rare opportunity to heckle me in person rather than via the boob tube.
I’ll be giving talks on two subjects: “What the Dogs Taught Me,” and “Bird Hunting Boot Camp.” If you like the Buddy & Me segments on Wingshooting USA, you’ll love the first topic. It’s all about what we learn while training dogs: about them, about birds, about shooting and hunting and about us.
Boot Camp is more nuts-and-bolts information about what to do, bring, how to comport yourself in the field, and other stuff that will help newcomers get acquainted with our passion. But you seasoned Upland Nation citizens will learn something as well. So bring a friend, child or spouse and stand by for fun and helpful tips.
Both talks will include plenty of two-way conversation, games, prizes, and as noted above, the chance to razz me often and loudly. Bring your sense of humor, questions, favorite bird hunting stories, and let’s talk! Get more information on the show here.
Thanks to the sponsors who make this visit possible: National Shooting Sports Foundation/wingshootingusa.org; Happy Jack; Filson and TruckVault. And plan to attend the Pheasant Fest in late February in Des Moines – see you there too!
