Game & Fish Helps Bring Land & Wildlife Expo to Nashville

NASHVILLE, TENN. --  In a first-of-a-kind collaboration, Game & Fish Magazine is teaming up with some of the nation's top conservation organizations to bring the new Land and Wildlife Expo to Nashville.

Thousands of outdoor enthusiasts will converge at Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center Aug. 12-14, 2011, for the Bass Pro Shops Land and Wildlife Expo presented by Ram Truck. Game & Fish Magazine will serve as a media partner for the event, in which Ducks Unlimited, National Wild Turkey Federation, Quality Deer Management Association, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Safari Club International Foundation will join forces to share the latest innovations for developing, preserving and enjoying America's rich hunting land.


This three-day event features a massive indoor hunting exhibit hall, outdoor equipment test drives, crop demonstrations, seminars by leading biologists, kids' activities and a private concert with Opry Member Craig Morgan and special guest Jeff Foxworthy.



"Supporting conservation is a long-standing Bass Pro Shops tradition and we are thrilled our customers will have the opportunity to interact with these top organizations, companies and celebrities under one roof," said Bass Pro Shops Founder Johnny Morris.

The 113,000-square-foot indoor exhibit hall will feature must-have products and equipment for the upcoming hunting season, product demos from top outdoor companies and celebrity appearances.


Outside, 105 acres of private land adjacent to Opryland will become an outdoor playground with ATV and UTV test tracks, tractor pulls, food plot and crop demonstrations, and classic truck and tractor exhibits. Visitors will also discover a  Kid's Village featuring activities for all ages, including a zip line and treestand safety demo, a shooting trailer presented by NWTF JAKES "Take Aim" and an archery range sponsored by the National Archery in the Schools Program.


Adventurous attendees can head over to presenting sponsor Ram Truck's demonstration area to test drive their range of trucks designed specifically for outdoor enthusiasts.

"Ram Truck is involved in the Land and Wildlife Expo because conservation and stewardship of the land play a vital role in sustaining the sport for future generations," said Fred Diaz, President and CEO - Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Chrysler Group LLC. "The majority of truck owners are involved in hunting and fishing. Being here to share their passion, while at the same time giving attendees the chance to get a fun, hands-on feel for our Ram Truck lineup is a great way to connect with new customers."

Back inside, the conservation partners will team up once again to deliver an all-star lineup of land management experts at The Mossy Oak True North Seminar Summit. This two-day series is designed specifically for hunters, landowners, and land managers looking to get the most from their properties through wildlife management and habitat development.

"We designed the seminar summit to resemble a land and wildlife management university with cutting-edge topics presented by the nation's top experts," said Brian Murphy, CEO of Quality Deer Management Association, whose 2011 convention is being held in conjunction with the Expo. "The information provided will be worth thousands to anyone who manages land for wildlife."

Day passes to the Expo are $20, three-day passes are $45, and children 12 and under receive free Expo admission with a paying adult.
