The Kentucky Outdoor Life/Field & Stream Expo concludes Sunday from 9 am - 4 pm at the Paducah-McCracken County Convention and Expo Center.  

The event has previously been in Louisville, and this is the first year the event has been held in Paducah.  

The event features top companies, gear and equipment, with deals, trophy contests, feature displays, archery, shooting ranges, exhibits and more. 

Local hunters are invited to bring their trophy buck to the show to be officially scored, and even displayed as part of the Kentucky Trophy Deer Contest.

One of the highlights for attendees of all ages will be Frank Addington’s Amazing Archery. Addington has been thrilling crowds for over three decades, and performs his entire show with his bow behind his back, including shooting an aspirin in mid-air.

Seminars by experts in hunting, fishing and conservation will take place.  

Representatives from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife will present the latest information about the Asian carp invasion on Kentucky's lakes, and the latest snapshot of bass fishing in western Kentucky.

A trio of whitetail deer hunting experts, Greg Miller, Steve Stoltz and Randy Flannery will share their insights.
Also taking part will be Eddie Salter, the “Turkey Man,” who has seven Southeastern Open Turkey Calling Championships, six Alabama State Championships and two World Open Championships.
Bringing a hometown feel, Paducah's Mark Menendez, three-time Bassmaster Champion, will share insight on bass fishing and his career on the pro tour.
Alan Probst, TV host and master trapper of coyotes, will share his methods and best practices. 
John O'Brion, owner of Grandpa Ray Outdoors and seed specialist for over 20 years, will impart his knowledge on the importance of planting the right forages at the right times.
