Big Game Hunting Competitions
Big Game Hunting Competitions are about fair chase and success. You trudge hills, ford streams, and spend hours in blinds, sometimes in the poorest of conditions. Often, your only reward is the experience. Sometimes, you emerge victorious, taking a trophy that leaves you beaming for weeks and with a memory to last a lifetime. Family and friends may appreciate your accomplishment, but what if you could showcase it to a larger community who shares your passion? North American Hunting Competition exists for just this reason, to celebrate and honor participation and achievement in hunting.
We are a premier hunting competition currently sponsoring big game competitions in 48 states and across North America. With individual contests for state, national, and guided categories, there are many opportunities to win. All hunting methods are welcome, and we rank all animals submitted by official entry—none is too small. The top three entries in any category will win year-end cash prizes* and be featured on our website. All entrants have the opportunity to win one of several other year end prizes, including free hunting gear and guided hunts.
Remember! We accept promotional video from guides and outfitters too. It’s an easy, effective and inexpensive way to showcase your skill and achievements to North American’s worldwide community.

Shed Horn Hunting Competition
One of the outdoors’ great treasure hunts is looking for shed horns, a pursuit that takes both skill and perseverance. While anyone can find these trophies, successful shed horn hunters use knowledge and experience to hone in on areas most likely to reveal the spiky bounty.
Whether scouring the wind swept slopes where animals paused to warm and forage or searching along fence lines for a rack liberated from a leaping buck, shed-horn hunters know it is a special talent, if not an art.
Now, these enthusiasts not only can claim the shed horn itself but also the opportunity to win cash and other prizes in North American Hunting Competition’s Shed Horn category. The competition is open to anyone, anywhere. Just submit your entry for a chance to win!
