BHA 2018 North American Rendezvous Heads to Idaho
Public lands hunters and anglers to converge on Boise April 12-14; registration opens today
MISSOULA, Mont. – As the battle for the future of our public lands and waters heats up, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is issuing an open invitation to sportsmen, sportswomen and others who treasure our wild places and outdoor opportunities to attend BHA’s 7th annual North American Rendezvous, to take place in Boise, Idaho, April 12-14, 2018.
“Lighting the Campfire” is the theme for the 2018 Rendezvous, with BHA’s biggest party featuring events, speakers and hands-on seminars that will unite us as backcountry enthusiasts, denizens and defenders. Highlights include BHA’s 2nd annual Campfire Storytelling event, featuring Steve Rinella and Remi Warren among others, the first annual Backcountry Film Fest and the first national BHA Hike to Hunt event, as well as returning favorites like the Backcountry Brewfest and hotly contested Camp Chef Cookoff.
“I’ve been looking forward to our 2018 Rendezvous since we closed down the party in Missoula,” said BHA President and CEO Land Tawney. “The opportunity to bring our family together from all corners of North America results in an energy that’s nothing short of electric. Since BHA was formed around a campfire in Oregon, our collective dedication and drive has built a blaze that can’t be extinguished. Buy your tickets now. This sucker is gonna sell out!”
Registration for the entire weekend, including the Campfire Storytelling, Backcountry Brewfest and Backcountry Film Fest, is available now.
Backcountry Hunters & Anglers was formed around an Oregon campfire in 2004. With chapters in 35 states, two Canadian provinces and Washington, D.C., BHA brings an authentic, informed, boots-on-the-ground voice to the conservation of public lands. Abundant access to our lands and waters, conservation of important fish and wildlife habitat and the principles of fair chase underlie the BHA mission.
