Registration Open for 2015 Western Hunting & Conservation Expo

Mule Deer Foundation is once again a title sponsor for the 2015 Western Hunting and Conservation Expo (WHCE). Keynote speaker on Friday, February 20, will be the NRA's Wayne LaPierre. Entertainment includes country music artist Jerrod Niemann and country music legends Sawyer Brown. Registration is now open for this must-attend event.

Registration is now open for the 2015 Western Hunting and Conservation Expo (WHCE) that will be held February 19-22 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. This year Ammo & More and ACI have joined the Mule Deer Foundation and Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife as the title sponsors for this can’t miss event. The Expo will feature a keynote address on Friday February 20th by the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre and music from top selling country music artist Jerrod Niemann. On Saturday evening, the crowd will be entertained by country music legends Sawyer Brown.

“This Expo will be our biggest one yet with 525 booths and hundreds of exhibitors,” said Mule Deer Foundation CEO, Miles Moretti. “We are thankful for our new title sponsors Ammo & More and ACI who have joined with SFW and MDF to make this such a great event. If you hunt in the West – or anywhere in the world, for that matter – you can’t afford to miss the WHCE!”

While the 2014 Western Hunting & Conservation Expo broke records with more than 30,000 attendees and raising over $5 million for wildlife, the 2015 event is expected to be even bigger. The evening auctions and entertainment are always a highlight and this year features top-notch auction items, impressive speakers and great country music singers.

“We have had a lot of success with the WHCE and know that this year’s event will be even better than ever,” commented Jon Larsen, President of Sportsmen for Fish & Wildlife. “Having Wayne LaPierre speak about our second amendment rights and the foundation of our outdoor recreation pursuits will certainly be a highlight.”

Throughout the Expo, there will be opportunities to apply for more than 200 Utah big game tags and great hunts available for auction. In addition, attendees will get a chance to buy some of the best new hunting and outdoor gear on the market. The Expo will offer seminars by hunting experts like Marc Smith, Hoyt Archery’s Pro Shooter, and Dan Adler of Diamond Outfitters in Arizona.

A full schedule of events and details of auctions, tags, seminars and more is available at www.huntexpo.com.
