Deer of the Day 2017

Buck or doe. Shotgun or bow and arrow. Boy, girl, man, or woman hunters. We are welcoming everybody’s nominations for the Eagle Country 99.3 Deer of the Day!


The tri-state’s best and original deer photo contest is giving our listeners the chance to show off their prized whitetail harvested during the 2017 hunting season.Each day, we’ll publish on this page a photo and story submitted by a listener. Bubba Bo will also share your successful hunting story with our listeners on the Eagle Country 99.3 Morning Show!


We are welcoming your nominations now through November 30, 2017! There are some simple rules to follow:

∙ Email your medium to high resolution photo in JPEG or GIF file format to deer@eaglecountryonline.com. Please include your name, city of residence, and location of the harvest along with a one paragraph story detailing your successful hunt.

∙ Keep your photo and story tasteful. Photos showing too much blood and/or guts won’t be considered (yuck!).

∙ The deer shown must have been hunted legally and ethically during the 2017 bow, firearms, muzzleloader, or youth hunting season in local areas of Indiana, Ohio, or Kentucky.


Check back on this page often for a new Eagle Country 99.3 Deer of the Day photo and story posted below each non-holiday weekday through November 30, 2017.
