Big bucks for big bucks

The 2020-21 Union Parish Big Buck contest faced a lot of challenges with Covid and not being able to have a spring banquet like usual. But due to the perseverance of the contest sponsors and supporters, we do have winners! The big deer were on the move this year and Union Parish hunters got their share.

The winners were presented their checks and plaques recently at K&M Coffee, Corks and Camo.

The contest really received a boost this year when hunters no longer had to buy tickets before hunting and it opened up the contest a lot. Here’s hoping it can continue to grow and highlight the parish’s great outdoor resources!


Adult Division:

  1. David Smith – $1,000 (159 2/8″ buck)
  2. Heather Durrett – $500 (156 2/8″ buck)
  3. Shawn Key – $300 (153 6/8″ buck)

Youth Division

  1. Avynn Berry – $500 (139 7/8″ buck)
  2. Elijah Ebarb – $250 (138 3/8″ buck)
  3. Shelby Richardson – $150 (137 5/8″ buck)

The deer were measured by certified judge Greg Hicks and the Big Buck Contest was hosted by K & M Coffee, Corks and Camo.

Thanks to Marcy & Kenny Kavanaugh, Greg Hicks, Peyton McKinnie, Bill Breed, Stanley Lenard and Caleb Gates for all your hard work putting on this contest. And of course, to you hunters!
