For many years local whitetail enthusiasts journeyed to Columbia the first weekend in March to attend the Missouri Deer Classic sponsored by the Show Me Big Bucks organization, the brainchild of Dale Ream of Unionville. Last year for the first time Ream's Show Me Big Bucks brought the Deer Classic to Chillicothe. They met with such outstanding success that the 2006 Classic will also be here, at the Chillicothe High School on Saturday, Feb. 25.

The Deer Classic, correctly titled the Missouri Show Me Big Bucks Club Deer Classic Events and Missouri Wildlife Extravaganza 2006, is an all-day event, with doors at CHS opening at 8 a.m. and not closing until 6 p.m. There is a small admission fee that allows attendees to spend as long as they like checking out whitetail racks brought in for official scoring, watching them being scored, visiting with the proud hunters who brought them in, and wandering through an exhibit area where vendors are showing off all kinds of outdoor equipment and organizations like the Wild Turkey Federation are ready and willing to explain their wildlife conservation efforts.

In addition there will be educational programs on various outdoor topics like "How to measure your antlers", "Quality Deer Management", "Calling and hunting spring turkeys" and many others. In case you get hungry while you're there, there will be a food concession on site with lots of goodies for your enjoyment. It's a great place for the whole family to enjoy a day devoted to the Missouri outdoors.

This event is sponsored by the Chillicothe High School Hunting and Fishing Club, one of the largest student organizations at CHS. School Resource Officer Mike Lewis (660-646-0700) is the project leader for the CHS Hunting and Fishing Club and told me that they still have room for a few more vendors who are interested in displaying their outdoor sporting equipment or items such as taxidermy work.

Last year's first-ever local Deer Classic attracted over 160 trophy whitetail racks brought in for measuring, including the largest deer taken in Livingston county. Rumor has it that there were several more giant deer taken this past season and the Deer Classic gives area sportsmen and their families an opportunity to get a glimpse of the kind of deer most of us just dream about.
