PEWAUKEE, Wis. -( Dates, locations and exhibitor space are now available for the 2017 Field & Stream/Outdoor Life Deer & Turkey Expos, the premier event series for hunting and outdoor lifestyle consumers.

The 2017 lineup features six returning shows in some of the country’s most active hunting regions.

Nearly 90,000 avid hunters, archers and outdoor lifestyle enthusiasts will gather at next year’s shows to test new equipment, marvel at prize mounts and gear up for the next season.

Of the largely male attendee group, 97 percent hunt whitetail deer and 79 percent bowhunt, based on 2016 exit surveys.

New for 2017, the Illinois Deer & Turkey Expo will return to Peoria and more than double in size, giving the enthusiastic local hunting community more access, more action and more accessories to kick off archery sales season.

Other highlights of the 2017 schedule include the Ohio show’s 25th anniversary and the second Florida Big Buck Expo produced by Deer & Turkey Expo organizers.

Full list of dates and locations below. Prospective exhibitors can book event space online at or by contacting Cheryl Keller by phone at 800-324-3337.
