The Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association
Big Buck Photo Contest Opens
Along with Alabama Deer Season
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – There’s no season like deer season, and this year hunters in Alabama have the potential to bring home more than just their wild game with the Big Buck Photo Contest.
The Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association is hosting its sixth Big Buck Photo Contest for deer hunters in Alabama’s Black Belt region. “We are incredibly honored to sponsor such a fun contest again this year,” said Pam Swanner, executive director of the Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association. “We love seeing people who are encouraged to venture outdoors for hunting – especially those who may not have hunted in the Black Belt before. We usually get a lot of entries from young people on our Facebook page and it’s exciting to see our great hunting tradition being carried forward and passed down from generation to generation.”
