The 2016-17 Mississippi Sportsman Big Buck Contest kicked off on Oct. 1, and offers opportunities for our users to win monthly prizes.

Dozens of photos of big bucks were posted to the online contest last season, so it’s a great place to brag about that big kill while competing for monthly prizes.

Each month, site administrators will choose a winner from photos entered that month.

Monthly winners will receive a free one-year subscription to Mississippi Sportsman magazine and a $25 gift coupon to the online Sportsman Outdoor Store.

The contest is free to enter, and all registered users of are eligible. Only photos of deer killed this season will be considered.

If you are not a registered member, just log onto the site and click on “Register” under the “Reports” tab.

Once registered, just log on and go to the contest page.

Enter as many photos of deer kills as you’d like to up your odds of winning! And remember: This is a photo contest, so be sure to capture quality images.

You never know when your image will be used in the magazine — or even on the cover.
