Big Doe Contest gives kids chance to learn about conservation


An event hosted Thanksgiving weekend at the Ag Center in Bonifay gave children a chance to have fun outdoors after turkey time and learn about ecological stewardship.

The UF/IFAS Extension Holmes County Conservation for Generations hosted the 2023 Big Doe Contest. 

“The mission of this contest is to involve youth in outdoor recreation and conservation,” UF/IFAS Director Kalyn Waters said. “The contest partners with the Randy Adams Memorial with the mission to get kids involved in hunting and fishing and to purchase lifetime hunting & fishing licenses for youth in the Panhandle.”

The event was free and prizes donated by people and businesses included shooting houses, ground blinds, trail cameras feeders, knives, flashlights, and other items.
