Predator hunters from across the country will gather at the 2012 National Predator Hunters Association Convention in Douglas, Wyo., next month. The second annual event will be held Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Wyoming State Fairgrounds. All predator hunting enthusiasts are invited to attend.
This two-day event offers something for everyone, and its timing and location offers a great excuse to get out and do some calling during your stay. Presenters will be giving scheduled seminars on topics like rifle accuracy, skinning, reloading, trapping and, of course, calling. A viewing theatre will play predator hunting DVDs throughout the show hours. Vendors will display their products and offer them for sale both days. Catered meals will be served each evening. All hunters, families and friends are welcome to attend.
The NPHA apparel store will be set up on site with discounted rates on the NPHA’s apparel, decals, knives and more. The benefit auction will also offer some bargains on great predator calling and shooting equipment along with some one-of-a-kind NPHA merchandise.
