Traveling Buck Pole

Get your scopes ready.  We will be looking for you on Nov 15th & 16th.


In addition to the buck pole, there is also a DOE CONTEST this year sponsored by NE MI QDMA.  Everyone who brings in a doe on November 15th will be entered into a drawing with $150 for first prize, $100 for second prize, and Couples Banquet tickets for 3rd prize.
