The highlight of the year for the organization is the Convention and Awards Banquet. The last weekend of February finds members from across Kansas and other states gathering for a weekend of meetings, banquets, clinics, and displays ranging from trophy animals to artwork and equipment.

Each year's event includes a guest speaker, each of whom are as impressive as the messages they bring. Recent speakers include: Harv Ebers, Maggie McGee, Brad Harris, Judd Cooney, Jim Dougherty, Glenn St. Charles, Judy Kovar, M.R. James, Dwight Schuh, E. Don Thomas, TJ Conrads, CJ Winand, and Tom Nelson.

The banquet is concluded after awards and recognition are given to animals harvested during the preceding season. Pope and Young categories are recognized, plus awards are given for photography, artwork, shed antlers, best pose of hunter with game, and taxidermy. Other items are auctioned and raffled to raise money that supports the KBA and its projects throughout the year.

As a bonus, there is always a bazaar worth attending where you can find bargains on new hunting gear that will help you get ready for the next season.
