Head and Horns
Don’t Miss the West’s Premier Head & Horns Competition at the 2012 Pacific Northwest Sportsmen’s Show!
Calling all hunting enthusiasts! Do you have a trophy in hiding? The 2013 Pacific Northwest Sportsmen’s Show invites you to bring head, horns and antlers to the Portland Expo Center, February 6-10 to vie for records and prizes at the highly anticipated “Head & Horns” competition.
Attracting more than 300 new entries every year, hunters can bring in their head and horns for scoring. Horns must be attached to the skull, found within the states of Oregon, Idaho, Washington or Montana, and killed under fair chase conditions. Prizes are awarded in two separate categories: “past harvest” for those taken prior to 2011 and “current harvest” for those taken during the 2012 hunting season.
Prizes are awarded for all three methods of harvest: rifle, archery and black powder. The top past entries for each of the big game categories will be on display throughout the show. Official entry deadline for the competition is 6:00 pm, Saturday, February 9th. The winning entries will be on display at the Show on Sunday, February 10th.
The grand prizewinner will be selected from the 2013 Washington, Pacific Northwest and Central Oregon Sportsmen’s Shows and will receive a brand new Fort Knox Protector Safe – Model 6031! Additional prizes will be awarded at each show. These valuable prizes are provided by ATK Federal Premium, Bushnell, Fort Knox Safes, Midland and Ruger!
In addition to the competition, Northwest Big Game Inc. will have copies of the much-anticipated fifth edition of the Record Book for Oregon: Big Game Animals as well as a brand new display. “Big Predators of Oregon” features Oregon’s biggest predators, including the second largest mountain lion ever taken in Oregon, a life sized black bear and a life sized grey wolf, along with the world record bison, and more. Don’t miss it!
