ALPHA— Each year the Alpha General Store holds a Big Buck Contest. A few good sized entries already have their photos displayed at the store located on the circle in Alpha.
Entries are allowed from Oct. 1 thru Dec. 16. The entry fee is a donation to the Porter School Library and Resource room. Bucks must be from Iron County and taken during the 2012 archery, regular gun or muzzle deer seasons. Bucks must be properly tagged when brought in for measurement.
Pictures will be taken and posted to the store’s website as entries are received. There are three prize groups and winners -- youth under 18, women’s and men’s. Winners will receive a USDA inspected whole beef tenderloin and a $25 gift certificate for the shops at Porter School Market Place.
Complete set of rules are posted at the Alpha General Store. For more information call 906-875-6328 or go to www.porterschoolmarketplace.com.
