With deer season in full swing, ALBBAA is proud to present the ninth annual Big Buck Photo Contest.
The winning contestant will receive an original 16x20 whitetail deer photo mounted on canvas by award-winning and nationally credited wildlife photographer Tes Jolly along with a $100 gift card to Bass Pro Shops. Tes, owner of Jolly’s Outdoor Visions located near Tuskegee, is a freelance wildlife photographer and writer specializing in whitetail deer and wild turkey.
To enter, contestants must upload a photo of a buck harvested within the 23-county Black Belt region during the 2020-2021 whitetail deer season to the ALBBAA website.
The entry that receives the greatest number of votes will be announced as the winner once the season closes on Feb. 10. Photo contest winners from the previous two years are not eligible for entry. Votes are allowed once per day, per entry.
Alabama features one of the longest whitetail deer seasons in the country that begins with bow season starting in mid-October followed by the opening of gun season on Nov. 21 in the majority of the state. The season closes on Feb. 10 in the Blake Belt. Before heading to the woods, ALBBAA reminds all sportsmen and women to refer to the rules and regulations, and purchase a hunting license, through the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
