Visit the TechHelp booth to see the Oceania Safari Rifle designed and built by Idaho’s Ryan Breeding of RB Big Bores. Ryan worked closely with TechHelp’s New Product Development Team at Boise State to design, prototype, and build this one of a kind work of art. Breeding’s Oceania rifle will be auctioned at the 2018 Safari Club International Convention in Las Vegas. Funds raised will help protect hunters’ rights and promote wildlife conservation.
In honor of Breeding’s Rifle, TechHelp will host a Safari Game at its booth where participants can win sweet treats from Idaho Candy.
