USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Whether it’s fighting the fierce fish of the Amazon, planning your first African safari, or getting the most out of your long-range rifle scope, the 2015 SCI Hunters’ Convention has a number of entertaining and educational seminars to help you track down the information you need.
Our hunting heritage is under attack like never before with the anti-hunting crowd making inroads through the ballot box, as well as infiltrating game and fish departments. Outdoor writer Michael Sabbeth will help attendees understand how to respond with effective counter arguments that support our rights to hunt in his seminar “How Can You Kill Those Beautiful Animals? Words and Stories We Must Speak to Preserve Hunting.” John Nores will present “War in the Woods with Marijuana Cartels,” an in-depth look at how fish and wildlife officers, through the formation of a Special Operations Marijuana Enforcement Team, are fighting to protect the public as well as wildlife and habitat from this increased threat.
Moderator Craig Boddington will once again lead a blue ribbon panel discussion to assist attendees in planning their first African safari. Now in its 24th year, this is SCI’s longest running and most popular seminar. Craig will also present “Hope for Africa Hunting.” With partial closures in Botswana and Zambia and increased ivory bans in Tanzania and Zimbabwe, there is a lot of negativity surrounding African hunting. Craig will present an historical perspective of past closures and bans while pointing out the increased opportunities available to today’s sportsman with more countries open than ever before, as well as some of the most affordable hunts ever.
Experienced Amazon guide Paul Reiss will lead participants through an insightful description of the fishes of the Amazon and the exciting angling opportunities that await travelers to the region.
Other seminars include wingshooting instruction with Gil and Vicki Ash, “Accommodating the Novice Female Hunter” with Deb Ferns, “The Long-Range Rifle Scope” with Aaron Davidson, “Avoiding or Treating Emergencies in the Wilderness” with Bill Mealer and a host of others well worth attending.
