SCI’s 2020 Annual Hunters’ Convention

Reno Nevada


2020 Ultimate Sportsmen’s Market


The 2020 SCI Annual Hunters’ Convention is the Ultimate Sportsmen’s Market with over 452,000 square feet of exhibit space and gear, guns, equipment, art and outfitters from six continents around the world.  SCI Members are lucky to have one of the best hunting conventions in the industry.  Whether you are looking for the best seminars, the best auctions, the best entertainment or one of the largest collections of exhibitors in the industry, the Ultimate Sportsmen’s Market is the place to be February 5-8, 2020 for the 48th Annual Hunters’ Convention in Reno, Nevada.


Each day the auction floor is crowded with day auctions and each night, everyone comes together to celebrate the accomplishments of the organization, amazing speakers and world class entertainment.  The evening auctions at the SCI offer some best in class guns, once in a lifetime hunts, amazing artwork and world class jewelry.  Every auction helps to fund conservation efforts around the world, humanitarian programs and the preservation and protection of our hunting heritage.


Reno offers a jumping off point for amazing skiing, great shopping, outstanding restaurants and of course the casino resorts in Reno and Tahoe.  As “Biggest Little City in the World,” Reno’s flight options are at a premium, so booking your travel into the city takes a little effort and some strategy.  I book my flights well in advance so that I am prepared, and I book my hotels direct.  I recommend checking the hotel page from SCI because there are a ton of travel scams at every convention.


In order to attend the 2020 SCI Annual Hunters’ Convention you must be a member of the SCI organization.  Safari Club International (SCI) is a not-for-profit organization of hunters whose primary missions are to protect the freedom to hunt and to promote wildlife conservation. SCI's 50,000 members and 180 chapters in the US and around the world are passionate about hunting and about wildlife conservation.


Whether you are looking for the latest guns, hunting equipment, sporting art, sporting books, safari gear, safari furniture, hunts, fishing trips, or entertainment, the SCI show is the place to find it.  The art and taxidermy at the SCI Ultimate Sportsmen’s Market is some of the best in the world.  


Auction items range from guns and art to some of the best international hunts across the world.  You may find outstanding artwork, a sheared mink jacket, an elk antler chandelier, a life-sized mountain lion mount, Alaskan fishing trips, guns of all sizes and shapes, and custom furniture at the day and evening auctions.  Items such as a Beretta shotgun, engraving from Lorenzo Ghiglieri, Grizzly Stik Arrows, Swarovski Binoculars, Boyt Harness Company Scabbards, and African art can be found at the show.  


The networking at the SCI show is also exceptional.  A few years back I was looking for some information on quail hunting across a wide variety of states, and I was able to talk to several outfitters and individual hunters who had the experience and knowledge that I needed to have a successful hunt.  Whether you are passionate about hunting Africa, Pakistan for Himalayan Ibex, Canada for Yukon Moose or elk stateside this is the show that you will want to attend.  Check out the Ultimate Sportsmen’s Market.
