2011 Big Buck Expo

July 8-10, The 2011 Southern Trophy Hunters Big Buck Expo returns to the Lakeland Center. It is the perfect amp-up for the coming deer season.

This year’s events include a variety of speakers from the hunting industry. Muzzy Hunting Camp will be welcoming the boys from the award-winning Backwoods Life TV and radio shows to discuss hunting across the United States and abroad for a variety of game animals. Also entertaining will be Roger Raglin from BKS Productions and Roger Raglin Outdoors; Davie Ferraro of Hunt Strong who’ll share tips on preparing for physically challenging hunts; Antler Insanity’s Kenneth Lancaster and Shane Smith; and Sam Klement of “Country Goes Huntin’” and “Huntin’ is Good.”

Another interesting speaker - and a topic I find fascinating - is Stephen Hall who’ll discuss...well, I’ll just copy and paste:

“Have an idea for the next great hunting or fishing invention? Introducing a new product or starting a new business? Producing or hosting a new outdoor show? If so, the next question is: ARE YOU PROTECTED? Stephen Hall, attorney with Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, will discuss the legal issues and strategies for protecting your ideas and publicity through patents, trademarks, and copyrights. As an avid hunter, fisherman, and outdoorsman himself, Stephen’s practical approach to protecting intellectual property rights is invaluable to those considering, or already in, the outdoor industry.”

The good folks at Muzzy will also display a dozen bucks that score over 200” and taken with their broadheads. A special gun section is hosted by Shoot Straight and will offer brand name firearms and optics at special show prices. Bring last year’s antlers to have them scored and entered into a tournament for a chance at braggin’ rights in nine different categories. Finally, those of you early morning Sunday visitors won’t want to miss Randall Myers’ pre-show Sunday morning service.

As always, there will be plenty of vendors, raffles, and cool prizes. I should be attending Friday evening and Saturday with fellow Mossy Oak ProStaffers. Bring your family and friends and enjoy the 2011 Big Buck Expo.

Admission: $22 Super Ticket (weekend pass), $10 adults, $8 Seniors 65+ and Retired Military (with ID), $5 kids 6-17. Admission Free for Active Duty and Active Duty Reserve (with ID) and kids under 6.
