We’re proud to say that Outdoor Life readers are the most hardcore and successful deer hunters on the planet. And for more than a decade we’ve been delighted to show off your bucks and tell your deer hunting stories to the rest of outdoor world. This year is no different, but we need your help.

Enter the contest here.

The Outdoor Life Deer of the Year contest is the greatest big buck contest in the country. And now is the time to begin submitting your best deer hunting hero shots for a chance to win the Grand Prize of a Yamaha generator and the opportunity to be featured on the cover of Outdoor Life. Our editorial panel will judge each submission on photo quality, tastefulness, the story behind your deer and its size. The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 28, 2014. Selected submissions will compete against each other in a “Battle of the Bucks” regional bracket face-off in March.
