Come on out to the Louisiana Sportsman Big Buck Contest March 13-15, 2020 to see some of the biggest deer killed during the 2019-2020 hunting season.

With hunting season in the books, it’s time to make plans to bring your bucks to the Louisiana Sportsman Big Buck Contest, scheduled for March 13-15.

Even if your deer mount isn’t complete, you can make arrangements with your taxidermist to bring the antlers to the contest, which is being sponsored by Bowie Outfitters and Antler Shed Deer Blinds.

Every buck entered for scoring will be entered into the random drawing to win the Grand Prize, a fully featured $3,500 Antler Shed Deer Blind with stand and ladder.

Deer may be dropped off beginning Friday, March 13, but must be entered no later than 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 14. No deer will be accepted before Friday.

The person bringing their buck into the show to be scored will get Free Admission to the show and a Free Admission ticket to pick up their antlers on Sunday.

It’s free to enter — just bring your unscored deer from the 2019-20 or 2018-19 seasons to the show.
