Arkansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry
As Charter Members of AHFH, we made a comitment to support this effort. They are an unwavering staple at the Classic! By bringing a non-perishable food item, adult attendees of the Arkansas Big Buck Classic receive $1 off the price of admission. Since beginning this canned food drive, tens of thousands of food items have been donated to Arkansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry, helping to feed hungry Arkansans.
Since 2006, the Arkansas Big Buck Classic has granted TEN wishes through the Make-A-Wish foundation for children with life-threatening illnesses. Over $50,000 !!! Proceeds from the climbing wall and the Chili Cook-off at the Classic go to Make-A-Wish.
Arkansas Game & Fish Commission
Over the years, the Arkansas Big Buck Classic has donated thousands of dollars to help support the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission & Aarkansas Game & Fish Foundation. The Classic has donated deer decoys to the AGFC enforcement division as well as providing space at the BBC.
Arkansas 4-H Center
The Classic built the Arkansas Big Buck Classic Whitetail Education Center and built a boardwalk at the CA Vines 4H Center. The Classic sponsored and chaperoned the first Youth Elk Workshop, and it has provided 3 scholarships for senior high students committing to a degree in wildlife biology and conservation.
