(November 16, 2022 5:47 PM) More than $4,000 in cash and merchandise was handed out at the 35th annual Knutson’s Buck Pole in Brooklyn on Tuesday.

The now-famous pole displays as many as 75 bucks on the M124 pole just outside the Knutson’s Sporting Goods main office.

The first buck came into Knutson’s to be weighed and hoisted on the pole at approximately 8:45 a.m. 

It did not take long for a line to form in order to enter into the Buck Pole contest.

The company has been weighing deer for 38 years.
