NRA crowns Mason Dixon Big Buck Contest winners
The Mason/Dixon Big Buck Contest is open to all show attendees looking to show off their favorite Whitetail or Sika deer mounts. Whether a complete head or simply a set of sheds, the contest is divided into the Current Season (taken in 2011) and Historical (2010 and earlier.) NRA Hunters Service's Monty Embrey and Matt Fleming are overseeing the contest and pleased with the results.
"We have heads both from Maryland and out of state," said Fleming. "As you can see from the crowd, people are really enjoying them."
While we don't have the complete results as of yet, we do know that the Best in Show belongs to Felipe Ordano of Prince George's County. We went to Monty Embrey for an explanation about the winner.
"It's a real big typical buck killed with a bow if you'd believe that," says Embrey. "Felipe won best of show because nationally and state record wise, his head would rank higher than any other deer here in the contest."
