DENVER - Dec. 30, 2017 - PRLog -- Get Prepared for Your Life Outdoors

in Colorado and Around the World at the

2018 International Sportsmen's Expo

DENVER, CO. – December 30, 2017 –
The 41st annual Denver International Sportsmen's Expo will offer its largest ever and most-diverse selection of gear, destinations, seminars and outdoor experts. The Expo is for the entire family…folks new to Colorado or homegrown…experts and amateurs…men, women and youth. The event spans three huge halls at the Colorado Convention Center, filling a space larger than five football fields with more than 500 exhibiting companies.  Public hours are from noon Thursday, January 11 through Sunday, January 14. Admission is $16 for adults; youth 15 and under and active military (with ID) enter for free.

The largest event of its kind in the Rocky Mountain region, the Expo combines exhibits, activities, contests and nearly a dozen free learning venues. There's something for nearly every outdoorist: whether snapping a breathtaking photo atop a 14,000-ft. mountain peak, telling stories by the campfire, reeling in the catch of a lifetime, listening to an elk bugle, kayaking a crystal-clear lake, or exploring the thousands of miles of Colorado's off-road trails by e-bike, Jeep, ATV or UTV.

New show elements include the Wilderness Camp, with daily clinics led by Todd "Wilderness Man" Jostes, star of Discovery Channel's Bushcraft Build-Off series. Todd's daily special sessions include Shelter Building, Wilderness Emergencies/Medicinal Plants, and Ember, the Art of Making Primitive Fires. Award-winning local writer Daliah Singer will highlight Colorado's top car- and family-camping destinations, plus tips and resources for all campers, first-timers to experts. The new TAKE IT ON Info Booth and seminar features women from across the West who'll chat with other ladies wanting information and guidance about the outdoors. The Legends Casting Contest, new on Saturday afternoon at the TFO Combo Casting Pond, will pit one team of celebrity anglers—a fly caster and a conventional-gear caster—against another team. The winning team will name a local nonprofit group to receive the $500 prize.

Sunday, January 14th has been deemed Beginner's Day at the Fishing Demo Tank. Several experts will share fishing basics and, during Brad Petersen's "Teaching Kids to Fish" seminar (1:30p), more than three dozen youth rod/reel combos will be given away, courtesy of Shakespeare. Local angler Sam Heckman will receive recognition from local junior and high school bass fishing club, and the expo will make a donation to the club.

Families looking for fun shouldn't miss the Outdoor Youth Fair, hosted by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. All-free activities designed to teach children about the great outdoors in a safe, responsible way include: radio-controlled ATV track, catch-and-release fishing pond, and archery range. CPW's Campground Theater offers a close-up introduction to all kinds of local wildlife, while the Aurora-based Raptor Education Foundation will present a variety of small and large raptors--perfect for selfies.
