Bag A Buck
CJ Addison won the 2018 Bag-A-Buck contest with this buck from October 2018.

This year’s grand prize winner will receive an Elite Energy bow

The annual Bag-A-Buck contest has returned for yet another season, this time offering a grand prize with a lot of pull.

The contest, run through, offers sportsmen and sportswomen a chance to post photos of deer they’ve killed during the 2019-20 season on the magazine’s website. Add a short description of the hunt, for a chance at monthly prizes and a grand prize. You can even add a video if you’d like. Your photo may even end up on the cover of Carolina Sportsman Magazine.

All subscribers to Carolina Sportsman are eligible for the contest. It is divided into four monthly contests (August-September, October, November and December). Prizes include a $25 gift certificate to the online Sportsman’s Store and a free, one-year subscription to the Sportsman. Monthly winners will be announced monthly in the Sportsman and on

Everyone who enters has a shot at the grand prize

The grand prize winner, announced in March, will receive a prize-package including a two-day deer/hog combination hunt for two people at Cherokee Run Hunting Lodge in Chesterfield County, S.C., a $50 gift certificate to the online Sportsman’s Store, a free, three-year subscription to Carolina Sportsman and an Elite Archery compound bow.

The rules are simple. Take a photo of yourself with a deer you kill during the 2019-20 season. Upload the photo to the Bag-a-Buck contest forum, and write a short account of your hunt. Include the date of the hunt, county of the kill, your name, hometown and any other interesting information. You can enter multiple times, with multiple deer, as long as they are legal kills in your state of residence or in the Carolinas. And remember, your buck doesn’t have to be the biggest one to win.

Monthly winners will be drawn at the end of each month, and the grand-prize winner will be drawn and announced in the March issue of Carolina Sportsman.

C.J. Addison of Lancaster, S.C., was the grand-prize winner in last year’s Bag-a-Buck contest. He entered a 10-point buck he killed on Oct. 16, 2018.
