Make plans to attend the International Sportsmen’s Exposition (ISE) held Feb. 21-24 at the University of Phoenix Stadium. ISE is a superb expo with exciting exhibitors from around the globe gathered indoors under the huge domed stadium in Glendale.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department will again have a significant presence at the show. Department personnel are teaming up with ISE to operate the kids fishing pond, and the department will conduct its annual assets sale that includes everything from huge antlers and mounts to supple soft rabbit skins. The Adobe Mountain Wildlife Center will have live wildlife on display, and the department’s Operation Game Thief and OHV programs will bring their educational trailers and program information.
Other attractions at ISE will include a giant casting pond, a 3D pop-up archery range and contest presented by Eastman’s Bowhunting Journal, seminars on hunting, fishing and off-roading at the Adventure Theater, the RMEF great elk display, Eastman’s trophy deer display, and the DockDogs pool and national contest. New this year will be the Valleywide Scout-O-Rama conducted by the Boy Scouts of America, Grand Canyon Council, outside of the stadium on Saturday, Feb. 23.
