Dixie Deer Classic

The 2022 Dixie Deer Classic is also set to take place in Raleigh, N.C., March 4 – 6. The event was canceled in 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions, so this year’s event should be a big one.

The Dixie Deer Classic is known nationwide as the top whitetail deer show in the country. It’s a day of meeting fellow hunters, seeing new products, watching deer mounts receive official scores, observing the best deer killed in the past year, and seeing some of the biggest names in the outdoor world.

Numerous awards are given to hunters in various categories. And the awards aren’t just for North Carolina hunters. The event also recognizes the top deer from South Carolina, Virginia, and other states. In the past five years, only one South Carolina hunter entered. As our online Bag-A-Buck Gallery shows, hunters in both Carolinas killed plenty of trophy deer in 2021, so we hope to see many of you at the show.
