The Kentucky Deer Classic has become known as "the" showcase for Kentucky's avid deer hunter and outdoorsman. Hunters from all over the region look forward to our Kentucky Deer Classic as part of their annual preparation for the upcoming hunting season. The exhibition floor will be filled with the latest hunting and outdoor equipment from the leading vendors in the hunting industry.
The traditional seminars, the "Kentucky Wall of Fame", the 3-D Archery Shoot, and the games such as paintball and BB gun shoot will add to the day's activities. This year's 24th Anniversary celebration will certainly bring special opportunities and excitement for all ages.
Thad Cartwright, a resident of Browder in Muhlenberg County, and an avid bow hunter, has received official classification of take of World Record Buck status.
Cartwright's very large, and very unusual, velvet buck was measured by Steve Lucas of BTR Buckmasters in the Archery Category, and is the new world record buck. This deer had a gross measurement score of 273 2/8 inch. On top of that, Cartwright has also won the Golden Laurel Citation Award in the Buckmasters records books. This award is given for the best buck and best story of the actual hunt. Only one buck per year is chosen for this award across the United States.
Mr. Cartwright's world-record buck will be on display at this year's 25th annual Kentucky Deer Classic in Greenville.
