VPSA Big Game Contest Coming in September

The Virginia Peninsula Sportsmen's Association (VPSA), in cooperation with the VDGIF, will be hosting its annual BIG GAME CONTEST to recognize those successful Sportsmen who harvested citation size Deer, Bear, and Turkey last season.  This year the contest will include a western Regional, Eastern Regional, and State Competition under one roof.  The event is September 23 & 24 at the Southampton County Fairgrounds.  Each day the show will be open from 9-5.  Entries must be received by 5PM on Saturday September 23.  Cost of the event is $10 for a weekend pass or $7 per day.  12 and under as VPSAll as active duty military are free.

The VPSA, headquartered in Williamsburg, is a group of sportsmen who serve sportsmen.  VPSA founded the BIG GAME CONTEST in 1940 and developed the Virginia Scoring System for Deer and Bear.  In the early years VPSA assisted the game department with the Whitetail Deer recovery effort in the Commonwealth.  VPSA members had a deer holding pen in Newport News, which is today known as Deer Park.  This contest is the oldest in the country and VPSA has 78 years of records from the Commonwealth of Virginia.  Annually VPSA receive many great entries from the Greensville, Southampton, and Brunswick County area Sportsmen of Virginia.  Youth hunters are highly encouraged to attend as VPSA have an entire youth division!

Successful sportsment wishing to enter a Deer, Bear, or Turkey in the Contest must have a valid confirmation number or game tag from last hunting season.  For Deer we need the antlers to measure; for Bear we need the skull to measure, and for turkey we need the spurs, beard, and certified weight card.  If you have an entry you are free to enter the show at but there will be a $15 per animal fee to score the animal.

In the deer category we have divisions for archery, muzzleloader, and gun harvests.  We have one division for Bear and one for turkey.  Additionally we have an entire division dedicated to youth hunters.  We award trophies for the top 3 scores in all divisions and state citations for all those who meet the minimum score for a citation. 

So for example if a you are a Youth VPSA member who harvested a huge buck in Greensville county.  Theoretically you could come home with a State Citation for that buck, VPSA member only contest trophy, Youth Division trophy,  Eastern Regional trophy, and State trophy for that one buck!
