The 2020 Outdoor News Deer & Turkey Classic will continue the state’s grand tradition of showcasing Minnesota’s top white-tailed deer and other big game. The Minnesota Official Measurers again will bring its team of scorers for scoring of deer and other Minnesota big game.
Come to the show and see all the greatest deer Minnesota produced from 2019 as well as incredible bucks from past seasons.
Only game taken in Minnesota will be scored. No animals taken in a high fence allowed.
Get Your Trophy Scored and Win Some Great Prizes!
Be a part of Minnesota white-tailed deer hunting history and include your trophy in the biggest display of state bucks in one place. If you took a mount-worthy buck during one of the 2019 Minnesota hunting seasons, bring it to the 2020 Outdoor News Deer & Turkey Classic. The event allows you to showcase your trophy for the entire weekend, plus, you have a chance to win ribbons and great prizes.
Bring your antlers in for all three days of the show – scheduled Friday through Sunday, March 13-15 at the Canterbury Park Expo Center in Shakopee, MN and get in on an additional drawing! Details here
Muddy Outdoors Boss XL hang-on treestands will be awarded for first place in each of the 36 categories, but winners must be on hand for the Deer and Turkey Classic awards presentation on Sunday, March 15 (at 3 p.m.) to receive their stand (winners also receive a blue ribbon). The top three finishers receive ribbons.
Staffers from the Minnesota Official Measurers will be on hand scoring antlers all three days of the Classic. The scoring office will open early each day of the show – Friday at 10 a.m., Saturday at 8 a.m., and Sunday at 9 a.m. Trophies that the MOM staff scores also can be entered into the organization’s state recordbook, “Big Game Records of Minnesota.”
Those intending to bring their big-game trophy antlers to the Deer and Turkey Classic should rest easy in the knowledge that those prized possessions will be in good hands. Canterbury Park security is provided during weekend shows at the Canterbury Park Expo Center.
