4th Annual Big Buck Contest

Vance Outdoors presents our fourth annual Big Buck Contest. We will be judging two categories: Archery & Firearms (Ohio bucks only). We're teaming up with Buckmasters, who will be scoring the bucks. Contestants can reach out to one of our Buckmasters scorers listed below and get their 2020 buck scored at any time they would like, for a $25 fee paid to Buckmasters.

Hunters can stop at our Hebron store location on February 20th & 21st during our Annual Buckmasters Scoring Event to score any shed or rack free of charge. Only 2020 season harvests will be entered into our contest at this free scoring event.
