I most likely am not attending, but I thought I would start a thread for the show and possible meet up.

I posted this in another thread about AH get togethers:

A friend of mine owns a pub in downtown Houston. However, it's not real close to the George R. Brown Convention Center. I've organized small get togethers after the Houston Marathon the last couple of years. I can probably get a few tables reserved. Not really any discounts, but the prices are fairly reasonable.

The Brass Tap is located at 922 Holman. There is a public parking garage adjacent to the pub, so parking is easy.

What we really need is for Gordy and Sons (https://gordyandsons.com/) to organize another book signing event and feed like they did last year with Dr. Kevin Robertson. I thought Gordy might do the same type of deal with John Sharp.​

HSC is Jan 24-26.

I’ll be on a mule deer hunt in W Tx that week but I’m still interested in getting together as a group some day. My place is always open for an evening meeting, centrally located in Midtown.

Just got on the Houston Safari Club website and noticed a Two for One coupon for admission. It says you have to print it out and bring it with out (some much for going paperless).

I've attached a pdf version.

The HSC is maybe 20% the size of DSC. Mostly outfitters and fewer equipment/guns/etc to look at. A good show if you are local, but not worth driving a couple hours or flying in for, unless you have another reason to come to H Town.

I took a photo of a couple of Eland that Conroe Taxidermy had on displayed. The dark colored hide made me a bit curious so I asked one of guys manning Conroe's booth and he didn't know anything. Any ideas?

I went to both - `To be honest-- after seeing Dallas-- I would never go back to houston again! It was tiny in comparison, expensive for what it was-- not a lot of guns or vendors -- it just isn't an apples to apples in comparison -- does not seem to be the same organization at all.

I thought they were and was surprised the guy manning the Conroe Taxidermy booth couldn't answer my question, when I showed him the exact photo and then point over to that actual display (which was from Conroe Taxidermy).

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
