Arkansas Big Buck Classic Logo

Arkansas Big Buck Classic

The Arkansas Big Buck Classic was started in 1990 to recognize the quality of whitetail deer Arkansas was producing. There was no internet and only those in an immediate local area ever knew about the big deer being harvested. There was occasionally a picture in the newspaper or stories were told at the local check-in spots, coffee shops, or at the taxidermy. However, only a few folks actually got to hear the hunter's story first hand. At that time, no matter what part of Arkansas a hunter was in, another region received the credit for producing the biggest bucks. Northern hunters said there were no big deer down south. Some said the mountains with its acorns didn't produce big deer like the Delta with its soybeans (or vice versa). Public land hunters thought all the big deer were harvested in huge private hunting clubs. Since a few hundred people attended the first Arkansas Big Buck Classic at an indoor archery range in Jacksonville in 1990, practically every long-held myth concerning big deer in Arkansas has been dispelled. There have been BIG DEER from every corner of the state including on private and public land!​
