deer classic2 300KENTUCKY (8/2/13) - With a lot of very eager archery deer hunters waiting for the opening day of Kentucky's Deer Season , so they can spend some quality time in the stand, there is a show here in Western Kentucky that thousands of people are also eagerly awaiting.

It's the 2013 Deer Classic!

It's that time of year again and this event kicks off the fever for a lot of deer hunters from across the state of Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and Tennessee.

The Kentucky Deer Classic is the longest running and the largest outdoors hunting show event in the state of Kentucky. This is the 25th anniversary and the Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce and Uncle Lees Sporting Goods have successfully worked hard to organize yet another great scheduled day of events on August 24, on Saturday, when the doors will be open from 8 AM until 4 PM.

Among the schedule of activities, there will be Harold Knight of Knight and Hale game calls, Don Bell, founder of Code Blue Deer Scents, and Roger Sigler, the Antler Man. These are the scheduled speakers and will also be available for a meet and greet during the event.

Also, the classic big buck profile feature is local Muhlenberg County hunter, Thad Cartwright. Thad will have on display his 50 point new world record velvet non-typical buck, which he harvested by Archery on September of 2012. Buckmasters Trophy Records official scorer Steve Lucas has officially measured and scored the buck at a net score of 273 inches, and that places Thad's monster buck the new world record.

Also, among the list of events that everyone might enjoy, is the BB gun shoot, Bandit Crossbow Shoot, Paintball  gun shoot and, on a side note, be sure stop by and visit me, Big Country, at the Kentucky Wall of Fame Big Buck Contest. Currently we have a youth contest for kids 15 and older to enter their trophy buck in the People's Choice Award contest.

There is also a 3-D Archery shoot.

Most folks enter the front doors and can enter their names for hourly door prizes. From there they can tour the building to witness nearly 100 booths of the latest manufacturer's products on the market or see the best taxidermists from the area.

New to this year's Classic is a contest for the public to enter into if they look like any of the Duck Dynasty cast. Everyone is invited to attend and dress up as one of the duck commander guys, or any member of the show, such as Phil, Si, Jase, Willy, Miss Kaye and the other ladies of the show, or even their friend squirrel! Judges will be appointed to select the best look-alike of two winners, both of which will receive a gift card.

Uncle Lees will have their huge tent sale going on the same day, located at the store's Garden Center. There will be a lot of deals and bargains, not only for sportsmen but for just about anyone.

Remember to visit my outdoor columnist buddy Loman Scarbrough. Loman will have a booth set up in the sporting goods section of Uncle Lees. Loman represents Sportsmen for Christ. Be sure and stop by and see him.

Tell a friend about this invent and invite all your buddies to come. This is a weekend to set your schedule  to visit Greenville, and be sure to set aside the whole day, as there will be a ton of events, such as the free concert on the Greenville Courthouse Square.

There will be a lot of activities for preparation of the upcoming season at the Deer Classic, so try to catch all you can and enjoy the day.

Until next week, I'll catch ya on the water or in the woods!
