Winners named in Evart Chamber 2016 Big Buck Contest

EVART — There were a good number of handsome bucks entered in the annual Evart Big Buck Contest, sponsored by the Evart Chamber of Commerce and facilitated by the members of the Evart Masonic Lodge. The Opening Day contest was hampered early on by decidedly foggy conditions and warm temperatures, but a little later in the day some big bucks were bagged.

In First Place this year was Joe Prichard who got a beautiful 8-point buck with a 20.5-inch spread for a total of 28.5 points.

In Second Place was James Hickersham with a total of 21 points after bringing in an 8-point buck with a 13-inch spread.

There was a tie for third place with young Aidan Vincent dropping a stately buck with 10 points and a 10-inch spread, and Brian Laesser with a 8-point buck with a 12 inch spread.

A great time was had by all sharing stories and enjoying a hot cup of coffee after a damp morning out in the field.
