Considering that the practice of the captive breeding of lions for the purpose of hunting has doubtful value to the conservation of lions in the wild, and considering that such hunting is not consistent with SCI’s criteria for estate hunting, the SCI Board has adopted the following policy:
- SCI opposes the hunting of African lions bred in captivity.
- SCI will not accept advertising from any operator for any such hunts, nor will SCI allow operators to sell hunts for lions bred in captivity at the SCI Annual Hunters’ Convention.
- The exhibitor agrees that in the event the exhibitor violates this provision, the exhibitor may forfeit the opportunity to participate in the convention and any further convention.
Whether your dream adventure is for midwest whitetails, an international expedition, fishing the world, or you have a passion for upland game and waterfowl, the SCI Convention has it, and so much more! Hundreds of professional hunters and outfitters representing every continent are excited to help put you on the adventure of a lifetime.
Top manufacturers from the outdoor industry are here, showing off their newest releases, from firearms and accessories to optics, ammunition, archery, gear and the equipment you need out there, wherever “there” takes you!
Fine art, outdoor-themed home furnishings, jewelry and fantastic taxidermy all add to making SCI Convention the event of the year!
Celebrities & Seminars
Over 70 seminars, meet & greets and keynote speakers pack the schedule at Convention. Educational, informative seminar presentations cover the spectrum of hunting, fishing, shooting and outdoor adventure.
Celebrity spotting on the exhibit floor is always exciting, with most attending to book their next hunt. Jim Shockey, Donald Trump Jr., Craig Boddington, Pat & Nicole Reeve, Adam Vinatieri, Adam LaRoche, Bruce Bochy, Nick Hoffman, Melissa Bachman, Tom Miranda, Kimberly Guilfloyle, Chad Belding, David Wells and Kristy Titus were among those spotted cruising the aisles and visiting with outfitters to book their next hunting and outdoor experience.
When the exhibit halls close, the evening fun and excitement begins! Each night, members come together to celebrate the accomplishments of the organization and to enjoy top entertainment and speakers. SCI’s evening auctions oﬀer exclusive ﬁrearms, once-in-a-lifetime hunts and adventures, the ﬁnest artwork, and more. Every purchase provides crucial funds to help preserve our hunting heritage and fund conservation eﬀorts worldwide.
Over 20 live, silent, day, evening and online auctions generate the funds to support efforts to protect your rights as a hunter.
Bid on once-in-a-lifetime hunt experiences, exceptional firearms, fine art and jewelry, all 100% donated by world renowned outfitters and manufacturers.
Proceeds from SCI’s auctions support hunter advocacy as well as SCI Foundation’s conservation and education programs.
SCI does not sell or provide Convention, Member or Exhibitor information to third parties for solicitation purposes. As such, should you be contacted by a third party attempting to sell “Contact Lists” or “Member, Convention or Exhibitor Information”, this is a scam, and these companies have no affiliation with SCI. These requests should be sent to RStolkin@SCIFirstForHunters.org for further investigation.
