What's Planned for 2017

The 63rd annual Mancelona Buck Pole is set for Wednesday, November 15 and Thursday, November 16, 2017.

 

Have we got an event planned for you!

 

Starting from the top:

Register your deer for $5.  No pre-registration. Just bring us your deer (see official rules), pay the $5 registration fee, and you'll receive (while supplies last - a random assortment of the following:) a reuseable shopping bag filled with great stuff from Mancelona Chamber Members and Buck Pole Sponsors, like a 10# bag Kitchen Farms potatoes, several packages of meat marinade from Alden Mill House, a cap from National Rifle Association, pins, decals and bumper stickers from Whitetails Unlimited, pens, pencils, 4Front Credit Union koozie cup, cell phone chargers, magnetic chip clips, magnifying rulers, Mancelona Chamber of Commerce post cards, and more.  Also, a commemorative Mancelona Buck Pole patch / year rocker.    What else do you get for the $5?  Well, regardless of the size of your deer, you are automatically entered in the Lucky Hunter Drawing, which is all of the registration money received, with a guaranteed minimum of $200.  You want more?  How about a couple dozen more prizes that will be given away by random drawing (of registered hunters) - prizes such as NRA cookbooks, DVD's, shirts, binocular/camera harness, gun cleaning kits, and other items?!  For $5, you are already a big winner at Mancelona Buck Pole, even before we get to the big prizes!

 

Cash Prizes for first deer hung ($10), heaviest deer ($150), deer with most points ($100), and widest rack ($75).

 

Here's more opportunity to win some *really* big prizes:

 

When you register your deer, you have the option to purchase special "participating hunter only" raffle tickets.  Purchase as many as you want!  The first name drawn has his/her choice of a Bergara Accura 50 cal CVA muzzle loader with Durasight Dead-On scope with case, -OR- a CVA camo/SS Wolf Rifle with scope and case, -OR- a Hoyt Defiant Turbo Compound Bow with a dozen arrows and whisker biscuit.  The second name drawn gets their choice of whatever 2 items are remaining, and the third name drawn gets what is left.  PLUS - we will continue on with that raffle and award a Range Duffle Bag, four Stealth Cam trail cameras, Remington Shot Gun Sling, HME scent-free clothing storage bags, several Bear Edge knives, and a couple of gun cases. (limit one 'grand prize' muzzle loader/bow per person; hunter must be present to win).

 

Still more chances to win!

 

EVERYONE can purchase regular raffle tickets.  Those tickets are $1 each, or a book of six for $5.  Top prize is $1,000 cash, 2nd prize is $150 cash, and 3rd prize is $100 cash.  Plus, we have nearly 100 other prizes to raffle off, including many gas cards, restaurant certificates, merchandise, cash, store certificates, all sorts of great prizes.

 

 

It's going to be a great time at the annual Mancelona Buck Pole!

 

We are proud to have been voted Northern Michigan's Favorite Buck Pole!

 

See you November 15 & 16!
