Big Buck Scoring
The big buck scoring will be on Saturday and Sunday using the Boone & Crockett scoring method. There won't be a trophy deer "contest" this year, that in the past required deer heads to be left all weekend. The scores of all deer scored will be recorded into the official Maryland Trophy Deer Record Book.
For this year, deer can be dropped off Saturday or Sunday at 11:00am in the exhibitor building next to the music stage. The deer will be scored while you enjoy the festival. At the end of the day the deer heads that were brought will be ready for pick up. It takes 20-30 minutes per deer to be scored. Deer heads brought later in the afternoon on Saturday may not be completed until Sunday. Deer heads brought Sunday need to arrive no later than 12:00pm to ensure their completion by the close of the festival at 5:00pm
