In 2021, the Western Hunting Expo was run in an online-only format due to Covid-19 concerns. Despite those restrictions, the expo was able to still generate $8.1 million for conservation efforts. However, in 2022 the Western Hunting Expo will be going back to its original format. That means it’ll be a 4-day event. During those four days, attendees will be able to immerse themselves in everything hunting. The main floor will have 425 exhibitors for attendees to enjoy. Likewise, there will be live entertainment and a wildlife auction. For a full list of scheduled activities, you click here.
