The first outdoor show I ever attended was at the Chicago Amphitheatre many years ago.  An editor I met there became the first to publish the material I write.  Over the years the show changed hands and moved to Rosemont, IL.  Later the show moved off into the sunset going out of business.  Recently the show returned to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.  It still remains close to my heart even though another company has taken over and revamped it.

With a larger, newly designed layout and expanded hours the 2013 version of the Chicago Outdoor Sportsmen Show ( returns to Rosemont January 23-27, 2013.

In a special promotion, tickets pre-purchased on line make the buyer eligible for a free subscription to Field & Stream Magazine or another choice.

The schedule of events boasts many hunting and fishing seminars, tons of new family-friendly attractions and more vendors and exhibitors preferred by those of us who enjoy the outdoors.  The organizers goal is to deliver top seminars and attractions that will speak to sportsmen and women of all ages.  They are dedicated to focus on activities that the entire family can enjoy.

In addition to the in-booth educational and commercial attractions the Show will offer classrooms for education by professional sportsmen.  The seminars continue each day of the show.

The list of seminar speakers includes the top anglers, hunters and outdoor professionals in the world.  Subjects such as fishing and hunting techniques, game cleaning and cooking, games for the kids, paddle sports and government support of the outdoors are on the agenda.  More additions are coming in the months leading up to the event.
