East Carroll Parish Big Buck Banquet
2013 - 2014
The East Carroll Parish Big Buck Contest finale was held, once again, at the Lake Providence Community Center on February 6th, 2014. This was our 8th annual event, which proved to be a huge success with over 300 people in attendance.
There were over 100 deer scored and many high quality bucks were harvested during the 2013 - 2014 hunting season. Our three largest this hunting season were:
Charles Tate - 18 Point - 160 5/8
Holt Martin - 12 Point - 153 5/8
Congratulations to these top winners and to all the hunters who participated in the contest.
We would like to congratulate all of our children and youth who show great interest in the sport of hunting. Several years ago, Joe and Evelyn Ross started our Little Britches Doe Division. This has been a great success and allows the children of the community 12 years of age and under to be involved in the contest.
First, second and third place prizes were awarded in all categories, as well as, many door prizes given to the crowd. Our prizes are getting better and better each year, thanks to our sponsors.
As in years past, our sponsors make the 'East Carroll Parish Big Buck Contest' possible. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those sponsors for their generous contributions.

A big thank you to Sheriff Wydette Williams and his crew for preparing the delicious meal enjoyed at the banquet. There are many behind the scenes folks who work hard in preparing for this event. We won't try to name them, but they know who they are and a big THANK YOU goes out to these folks.
Each year our entertainment is provided by our local band "Close Enough." They do a great job and we would like to thank them for their dedication and for sharing their talents with us.
Hunting season is now underway and we are looking forward to seeing you for the 9th annual East Carroll Parish Big Buck Contest.
