Bag-A-Buck contest returns for 2020

Preston Scott of Simpsonville, S.C., won the grand prize in last year’s Bag-A-Buck contest for his entry of a buck he killed last Oct. 11, in Spartanburg County.

Contest will feature monthly winners and grand prize winner

The annual Bag-A-Buck contest has returned to Carolina Sportsman for another deer season. The contest offers monthly prizes and a grand prize at the end of the 4 1/2-month contest.

The contest, run through, offers sportsmen and sportswomen a chance to post photos of deer they killed during the 2020-21 season on the magazine’s website, with a short description of the hunt, for a chance at prizes. The more details you add, the better your chance of being selected. We sometimes select photos from the contest as cover shots for the magazine. So keep in mind that photos taken in portrait mode work best for cover shots.

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

We will announce the grand prize winner in March. This winner receives a prize package including a two-day deer/hog combination hunt for two people at Cherokee Run Hunting Lodge in Chesterfield County, S.C. They’ll also receive a $50 gift certificate to the online Sportsman’s Store, and a free, three-year subscription to Carolina Sportsman.

Enter your deer on our Bag-A-Buck forum

The rules are simple. Subscribe to Carolina Sportsman. Take a photo of yourself with a deer you kill during the 2020-21 season. Upload the photo to the Bag-A-Buck contest forum 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.

We will draw winners at the end of each month. And we’ll draw the grand-prize winner and announce it in the March 2020 issue of Carolina Sportsman.

The contest begins on Aug. 15, opening day of deer season in portions of South Carolina.
