LITTLE ROCK – The Arkansas Big Buck Classic returns to the Arkansas State Fairgrounds for its 28th year this Jan. 26-28.

Knife-making demonstrations, mechanical bull riding, live snakes and alligators may grab many people’s attentions, but the show’s true focus is the trophies from this year’s deer season, brought in from hunters across Arkansas. Hunters are encouraged to bring their deer’s antlers or mounts to be scored and judged for prizes.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will host a booth at the event, and AGFC staff will be on-hand to answer your questions about fisheries, wildlife management and wildlife law enforcement in The Natural State.

The awards presentation begins at 4 p.m., Jan. 28. There is no charge for parking on the fairgrounds site.

Show hours are:

  • 1 p.m.-9 p.m., Jan. 26
  • 9 a.m.-9 p.m., Jan. 27
  • 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Jan. 28
