Palin back on the speaking circuit, to appear at hunting convention

(CNN) - Sarah Palin is venturing back on the speaking circuit, scheduled to appear at the Safari Club International's annual hunter's convention at the end of the month in Reno, Nevada.

The convention is the largest fundraising event of the year for the group, which calls itself the "leader in protecting the freedom to hunt and promoting wildlife conservation worldwide."

According to the convention's website, Palin is the keynote speaker of the event that is expected to draw thousands. The former Alaska governor, who most recently has demonstrated her fondness of hunting on her TLC reality show, will discuss "her past hunting experiences and how politics affect the current state of hunting and fishing."

Other featured speakers and entertainers at the event include Larry the Cable Guy, The Marshall Tucker Band, Pure Prairie League, Elvis impersonator Matt Lewis, NASCAR's Richard Childress, and talk radio host Michael Reagan.

    You have got to be kidding me? When I first saw this I thought it was an ad for Saturday Night Live or something! Talk about a narrow venue. She's truly not able to move outside her comfort zone. Please go away, Palin! Stick with hunting.

    A person who cannot load a rifle to give a keynote speech, that is real hunter. Also to note using a high caliber rifle rather than say bow and arrows to hunt is real easy.

    going on the air with Sean Hannity is NOT breaking media silence.'s just more of the same old same old from the same old same old. She'll tell us how much she hates violence, then she'll go into...'reload' mode. Sarah, you are the hypocrite of all hypocrites! Get a pair and tell the world the truth...say 'oops, my bad' and go home.
