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.
2017 we are replacing the "Lucky Deer" program with a
"Lucky Hunter" contest section.
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.
