Best Big Buck Photo Contest 2023 – 2024

Co-winners crowned in Big Buck Photo Contest

This contest is currently closed. Check back next season!

The Alabama Black Belt Adventures 12th annual Big Buck Photo Contest received dozens of entries and thousands of online votes. In the end, two photos – one of a smiling 7-year-old girl after harvesting her first buck and a Pintlala man who harvested a 13-point velvet buck – stood above the rest. The two photos were separated by only four votes, so Olivia Faulkner and Chad Stinson have been declared co-winners of this year’s contest. Congratulations Livy and Chad!

Livy Faulkner

Olivia Faulkner, a second-grade student at Troy Elementary School, harvested her first buck on Thanksgiving Day 2023.
