Can the Dixie Deer Classic possibly be 34 years old? Well, it’s difficult to remember a time when North Carolina’s best bucks weren’t on display at the N.C. State Fairgrounds, but the 34th annual Dixie Deer Classic is indeed at hand, scheduled for Feb. 28-March 2 at the fairgrounds in Raleigh, specifically the Jim Graham Building, the Exhibition Building and Dorton Arena.

It’s a rare accomplishment for an archer to take two big whitetails in the same season, but it’s even less common for a female hunter. Consider Burlington’s Lynsey Koury an uncommon hunter. She took up hunting in 2008 when she and eventual husband Carson started dating, and last fall, she killed two trophy bucks in the space of two weeks.

In the southwestern corner of North Carolina, Clay County is recognized more for black bears than whitetail deer, but Tommy Hogsed, owner of Parker’s Country Store in Hayesville, had seen a heavy-beamed buck chasing a doe in 2012. He found him again last fall and killed him last Sept. 30, the opening day of muzzleloader season.

A lot of people consider Friday the 13th an unlucky day, but don’t sell that superstition to Cody Caviness of Asheboro. On Friday, Dec. 13, the 22-year-old construction superintendent bagged his career-best whitetail. It has a nearly-perfect 5x5 rack that’s been scored at 1691/8 inches by Denton taxidermist Tommy Freeman.

Last fall was a special season for Curtis, who used a Thompson Center Encore rifle with a .25-06 barrel to drop the best buck of his hunting career, a 10-point typical that scored 166 7/8 Boone and Crockett Inches.

994 Views - Posted: January 15 at 8:14 am

Hubert Bowen of Ayden ended an 11-year drought in a big way last fall. He’d had plenty of chances to take deer over since 2002, but he didn’t pull the trigger until Oct. 15, when he killed an 8-pointer. He added another 8-pointer on Nov. 21, then a third 8-pointer on Dec. 27. The last of those three Greene County bucks he entered in North Carolina Sportsman’s Bag-A-Buck contest, and his entry was chosen a few days later as the winner of the monthly contest for December.
