2023 Brought in the long awaited Big Buck Contest. Hosted by Fence Depot. John Locke and his wonderful team pulled off an unforgettable event. On January 28th, at the Agora Catholic Centre, which was turned into an exhibition & banquet hall, the event brought experienced hunters from all over the SDG area. Many hunters were able to enjoy the retail environments of the area, using restaurants and other retail outlets. The exposure was Canada wide, with the banquet and activities being filmed for the Wild TV, Canada’s Hunting & Fishing TV Network.
The event and banquet was only for the registered hunters and their guests. Sadly, this was not open to the public. Many local businesses provided door prizes, which allowed each registered hunter to receive a gift. Gift bags were also assembled, along with many business cards of the gift donors. The big door prize which got the attention of everyone was a $ 10,000 dollar Honda ATV package. This was provided by Irwin Supply Cornwall Limited. The lucky winner was able to pick up the ATV later in the week. Throughout the evening, raffles were drawn for many of the secondary prizes. The list of donors was very large, too large to list!
