It’s “Happy New Year” week for American hunters as the 2018 hunting show season begins with the Dallas Safari Club (DSC) Legacy Convention & Sporting Expo, Jan. 4-7, at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Center in Dallas. Considering 2017 overall was a year of positive momentum in which American hunters were recognized repeatedly as the backbone of successful wildlife management—including by Secretary of the Interior and fellow hunter Ryan Zinke—we have much to celebrate. While we hunters must remain vigilant in protecting hunting’s future, where better to recharge our batteries than at the collective hunting community’s first event of the year?
Quite fitting, the 2018 DSC show theme is “Legacy.” The DSC Legacy Convention & Sporting Expo runs Thursday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. In addition to the opportunity to peruse 1,800-plus booths on the convention floor, evening highlights include dinners and live and silent auctions. As noted by Lonestar Outdoor News, over the past six years the DSC show auctions have generated in excess of $6.7 million annually for conservation, education and hunter-advocacy initiatives worldwide.
The Dallas Safari Club has been going strong since its inception in 1972. Like the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits, this annual convention is a favorite gathering point for fellow hunters and wildlife enthusiasts as we continue working to pass along our cherished all-American hunting traditions.
