Wisconsin’s gun deer season is nearly over – and we want to see your trophy deer!

Huge thanks to our sponsors this year!

Prizes include a half-barrel party, t-shirts, gift certificates, Wausau Cyclones Hockey Game tickets and MORE. Winners are chosen at random and will be notified by email when the promotion ends. Must be 21 to win half-barrel party prize, but younger hunters can still enter to be drawn separately for age-appropriate swag and other gifts.

Please send your pictures to advertising@wausaupilotandreview.com along with your name, age, where you live, where you shot your buck (unless you don’t want to give away your secret hunting spot), when you shot your deer and any antler information you want to provide.

Bow hunting trophy deer are welcome, too.Watch this page for all the updates!

Photos will be posted as received throughout the hunting season.
