The deer contest is looking strong for this year’s Elmwood All Outdoors Show, held Saturday (March 5) and Sunday (March 6) in Elmwood.
We’ve got some cool bucks on the boards that are ready to be ogled when you show up this weekend.
But there’s also a new contest at the seventh annual show: A non-deer mount contest. What does that mean?
For $5 you get a two-day admission pass to the show (worth $10) plus a shot at $100. And you get to show off your cool mount, be it a Blue Wildebeast (one of which is already hanging in the high school gym), a quail, pheasant, turkey, fish or whatever.
Just bring in your non-deer mount and you’ve got a shot at winning $100.
Winner will be decided by voting of attendees, who will drop coins in jars for their favorite entry. Heaviest jar Sunday at 2:53 p.m. wins first prize: $100.
More than the money is the idea of showcasing some different mounts in addition to the usual roster of real cool big bucks.
So bring in your mount. We’ll register mounts any time Saturday and Sunday up until noon.
As mentioned, the cost is $5 and all proceeds go to the athletes and athletic programs at Elmwood High School.
