The Louisville Deer and Turkey Exposition Begins January 30
The Louisville Deer and Turkey Exposition will certainly fill the Kentucky Exposition Center at 937 Phillips Lane with hunting demonstrations and exhibits during the weekend of January 31, but hunting is only one aspect of this show. There are over thirty how-to hunting seminar sessions and booths stocked with the latest and greatest in hunting gear, but the event is also filled with entertainment options that go well beyond the expected.
Unexpected and Included with Your Ticket
Tickets to the expo are priced $14 at the gate or $11 in advance. Your admission ticket gets you a one year subscription to Field and Stream magazine. Country music artists Craig Morgan is performing live on Saturday night and the show is free to Saturday's expo attendees. Morgan will play a select set of acoustic songs in an intimate storyteller format.
For the Attendee Who Doesn't Hunt
Deer and turkey hunters will not want to miss this event, but if you want to bring a reluctant companion along for the day try enticing them with this information. A ten yard archery range will be open with shooting instruction offered. A chainsaw artist will be using an electric chain saw to make bears, eagles, and other things appear from wood. The finished art pieces will be for sale at the show. A morel mushroom hunting expert will be speaking under the subject title All About Morels and Other Edible Mushrooms. A wild game cooking demonstration will be conducted.
Contests at the Deer and Turkey Expo
Several contests are accepting entries and will be run throughout the expo. They include a shed antler contest that is open for anyone with prize worthy antlers found during a shed antler hunt. A trail camera contest with five categories and outdoor photo competition also with five categories will give photography enthusiasts a chance to get involved and compete for prizes during the event.
