2022 Dixie Deer Classic

The 2022 Dixie Deer Classic is set to take place in Raleigh, N.C., March 4 – 6 at the N.C. State Fairgrounds. 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 and Virginia. In the past five years, only one South Carolina hunter entered, so Palmetto State hunters need to head north to take part. 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.

Because the 2021 Classic was canceled, hunters can have their trophies from the 2020 and 2021 deer seasons scored.

Bear skulls will also be scored.

A venison chili cook-off is also slated to take place, as well as the Carolina Dock Dogs competition, the NCNWTF turkey call makers competition, a trail camera photo contest, the kids scavenger hunt, and numerous other activities for every member of the family.
