A laundry list of experts that reads like a who’s who of personalities in the outdoor world will be at the Quality Deer Management Associations’s National Convention in New Orleans this week, with several also attending the Sportsman Show in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as well. 

Celebrities will be on hand for meet-and-greets, and some of the most accomplished hunters and anglers will be giving seminars throughout the weekend. In live and online auctions, there will be lots of fantastic prizes, including a five-day all-inclusive Nebraska muzzleloader hunt with Cuz Strickland that will be filmed for Mossy Oak’s “Hunting the Country” TV show. Check out the QDMA Convention app for more details on the online auction. 

This edition of the national convention will feature more educational opportunities than ever before. Topics from the best supplements and food plot plants, to professional rattling and calling tactics are all on the roster of more than 20 seminars. 

And at the Sportsman Show, a special must-see panel discussion on aging deer on the hoof will be held along with seminars on food plots, a farm-to-table demonstration about processing your own deer and understanding wind, thermals and air currents. 

Also, don’t miss hearing from deer hunting expert, author, former deer study leader and Louisiana Sportsman columnist Dave Moreland.
