This weekend's 2018 Louisiana Sportsman Show, presented by Reed’s Metals and Parish Tractor at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, La., is certain to be a hit with all outdoors enthusiasts. 

Deer hunters will be delighted to know that the Quality Deer Management Association is holding its national convention in conjunction with the Sportsman Show. And duck hunters will be treated to a whole section of the Dome that features nothing but the newest and greatest duck boats and surface-drive motors.

All outdoorsmen should bring their wallets, because several retailers will be bringing in actual truckloads of gear to be sold at closeout prices. And if that isn’t enough, there is a full roster of speakers and educational seminars planned featuring some of the biggest outdoor celebrities and most accomplished hunters and anglers in the world.

Show hours are 3 to 9 p.m. on Friday, July 20, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 22. Tickets are $12 for adults 13 and up, and kids ages 6 to 12 are just $6. Children 5 years old and younger are free.

Please note that NFL-type security will be in place at the Dome for the show, so knives and guns are expressly prohibited. Also, the maximum vehicle height for the Superdome parking garage is 6 feet, 6 inches, so most jacked-up half-ton and three-quarter-ton trucks will not fit. There is a lot across Poydras Street for oversized vehicles.
