    I found that the Illinois Deer and Turkey expo is not returning in 2018, due lack of attendance and other factors. So I'm trying to locate other expos in one of the neighboring states; Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri or Wisconsin. Anyone have any recommendations of which one would be a good one to attend? Thanks.

    There is a deer and turkey expo in madison in the spring. I believe it is held at the alliance center? Awesome show! Plus if you are a hunter safety instructor you can show you ID card and get in for free

    There is another deer & tirkey show thats at the washington county fair grounds (west bend).that show usually has some big name tv personalities and has in the past has an archery contest to participate in along with some other interesting displays. This show is usually a month or two after the madison one

    About time they put the Illinois Classic to rest. It was heart breaking a couple years ago to see what it had fallen to.
