Shofner’s Whitetail Challenge is a not for profit deer contest open to hunters participating in the regular Illinois firearm seasons.

Buck scores are determined by a combination of antler measurements.

The contest and awards banquet is hosted by Shandy's Pub & Grub in Henry, Il.

Our vision is to promote the legal and responsible taking of whitetail deer in Illinois while providing a venue for tall tales, camaraderie, education, a gathering of people with the same interests and a lot of fun.

Lucky Hunter

Any deer (buck or doe) checked in that does not qualify for one of the top three buck scoring awards, will be entered into a random draw where 5 lucky winners in attendance at the banquet will be drawn for $100 each.

***To enter simply get a tasteful picture of you with your harvest and send to Aron via text 309-339-8266. Pictures can also be sent to any other committee member as well***

Note; These pictures will be on display so please make every effort to make the picture clean and as acceptable as possible to others that may not see this great sport as we do.
