For all of you in Iowa or the surrounding states, you’ve got a big weekend coming up! The Iowa Deer Classic, one of the premier deer hunting expos, will be taking place this Fri-Sun at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines. With hundreds of exhibitors, great guest speakers, big buck competitions and shooting contests, this is an event you can’t afford to miss.

The exhibitor list for the Iowa Deer Classic reads off as a who’s who of the hunting industry. In attendance you will find companies such as Bad Boy Buggies, Trophy Rock, G5 Outdoors, PSE Archery and Muddy Outdoors. If you like you’re hunting tv entertainment you can catch staff from Michael Waddell’s Bone Collectors, Heartland Bowhunter, Driven TV, Midwest Whitetail, Rut Junkies and White Knuckle Productions.

In addition to great exhibitors there will be seminars from speakers such as Larry Weishuhn, Michael Waddell, Travis “T-bone” Turner, Rick Krueter and Pat Reeve. Topics such as shed hunting, ground blind hunting and hunting mature bucks will be covered.

Lastly there will be a big buck competition, a big shed competition, archery contest, 3D pop up target contest and a National Archery School Program (NASP) State Shoot!

There definitely seems to be no shortage of attractions or activities to check out at this year’s Iowa Deer Classic, my only complaint is that it’s hundreds of miles away from me! For all of you who get to make it, make sure to let us know how it was!
