2007 Deer Classic Winners

The Deer Classic is an annual event showcasing hunter entries in New Jersey’s Outstanding White-tailed Deer Program, which was initiated by the Division of Fish and Wildlife in 1964.

On Sunday, January 14, 2007, a large crowd was on hand for the awards program held at the 18th Annual Garden State Deer Classic for the top three 2005-2006 entries in each category. The 2007 Deer Classic was sponsored by the Division of Fish and Wildlife, the New Jersey State Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, United Bowhunters of New Jersey (UBNJ) and the Garden State Outdoor Sportsmen's Show.

Along with the winners present at the Classic, appearing in the photos on this page are, left to right, Jack Spoto, President of UBNJ, Division of Fish and Wildlife Director Dave Chanda, and Fish and Game Council member John Messeroll representing the Federation.
