Trophy Registration Contest Rules

When you bring your antlers or a bear skull to the Minnesota Deer Classic do not go to admissions and buy a ticket. Take your antlers/rack or bear skull to the Trophy Registration entry on the northeast corner of the Schwan Center to be measured during show. There is no fee for measuring this year.

It will take around three hours or more, depending on the number of heads entered, for your antlers to make it through the measuring room, and get entered into our database for the record book and finally get taken out to trophy display. You’ll know it's ready to go home when you see it hanging on the pegboard trophy display. 

When you're ready to leave, show your receipt to one of the trophy display workers and check your certificate to make sure it is correct.
