2017 World Deer Expo Deals - Part 1 | Great Days Outdoors

World Deer Expo Deals Part 1


It was a whirlwind weekend at the 34th annual World Deer Expo. There were over 400 exhibitors on site and an estimated 25,000 visitors to the 3-day event held in Birmingham, Alabama. What I enjoyed most about the show was getting to meet the real people who work tirelessly to bring products to market that solve problems and enhance the experience of outdoorsman all over the country.

Some companies are bigger than others, some are brand new and others have been around for a while. Regardless of their size or their age, you can bet that these folks embody the American spirit. They all have that kind of can-do attitude and I left knowing that the American dream is still alive and well.

I made my best effort to visit every vendor (there were over 400!) over the weekend and try to secure exclusive deals for Great Days Outdoors Subscribers. Below you’ll find some of the great deals I was able to lock-in for you on day 1, as well as a brief description of what each company offers. So be sure to scroll all the way through and get to know the faces behind the companies and stay tuned for the deals I locked in for you over the rest of the weekend.
