Bag-A-Buck contest returns for 2021

Share your story for a chance to win the Bag-A-Buck contest

Want to see what kind of success deer hunters across the Carolinas are having? Want to take a chance to win some great prizes?

Carolina Sportsman’s Bag-A-Buck contest returns this year to give you the opportunity to answer both of those questions. 

Run through, the Bag-A-Buck contests gives hunters in the Carolinas the opportunity to post photos of deer they harvest and write short stories about how that success came about. Contest entrants will have two chances to win: four monthly contests for deer taken and entered in August-September, October, November and December, and a grand-prize drawing from among all entrants at the end of the season.

To be eligible for prizes, entrants must be subscribers to Carolina Sportsman.

Prizes are awarded monthly, followed by Grand Prize winner

The monthly contests will offer as prizes a 1-year subscription to Carolina Sportsman and a Sportsman prize package that includes a True Flipper folding knife. Winners will be drawn at the end of each month. The grand-prize contest, which will be announced online in February and in the March 2022 issue of Carolina sportsman, will offer a 3-year subscription to Carolina Sportsman, a 2-man, 2-day combo deer and hog hunt at Cherokee Run Hunting Lodge in Chesterfield, S.C., and a Sportsman prize package that includes a Millennium M25 Hang-On tree stand.

The rules are simple. Subscribe to Carolina Sportsman. Take a photo of yourself with a deer you kill during the 2021-22 season. Upload the photo to the Bag-A-Buck contest link on, and write a short account of your hunt. Include the date and county of the kill, your name and hometown. Feel free to enter any other information that made the hunt interesting or memorable. You can enter multiple times, with multiple deer, as long as they are legal kills in your state of residence or in the Carolinas.


Gerald Murray of Hopkins, S.C., won the grand prize in last year’s Bag-A-Buck contest, entering a trophy buck killed Sept. 5, 2020, on hunt-club land in Richland County, S.C.
