You Want ANTLERS?
At the 2012 Missouri Deer Classic, we scored over 44,000 inches of trophy Whitetail antlers. Even more racks are coming in the door this year. We will even have some of the most famous bucks ever taken in North America on display. Make sure to bring your camera to this event!
YES, we said 44,000 inches of antlers!
* Free scoring of racks is on a first come, first served basis. Racks being scored for the Big Buck contest are moved to the front of the line and will be scored before general admission racks. If you are coming to the Expo and need your rack scored quickly, you must enter the Big Buck contest. Some of our scorers are certified to score both P&Y and B&C, some only one category. Please be patient and get here early to insure your antlers are scored the same day. We can not guarantee that antlers brought in after 12:00 p.m. (Noon) on Sunday will be scored before the close of the Expo. Antlers entered into the Big Buck contest must be on display both days. Your $20 paid entry into the Big Buck contest allows your attendance to the Expo on both days for one price.
