About the Event

Each year, the Big Buck World Championship brings the top players and fans together for an unforgettable celebration of all things Big Buck Hunter. It all starts with Online Qualifying Tournaments, available on participating online Big Buck Hunter and Big Buck Hunter: Reloaded games across the United States, Australia and Canada. At the end of qualification, 128 players will be invited to the World Championship!

For 2020, the 13th annual World Championship was put on hold due to the unfortunate reality of COVID-19 and social distancing. Pappy felt it was best to keep everyone safe and healthy by skipping unlucky number 13.

For 2021, the 14th annual World Championship plan is the same as 2020, with all qualifier play from 2020 carrying over to 2021. We will bring together the top 64 skill players and 64 wildcards to compete in a massive two day event. Our biggest Big Buck battle yet returns home to take over Joe's Live in Rosemont, Illinois. The championship competition kicks off in 2021 on Friday, October 1st, and continues on Saturday, October 2nd. With over $125,000 in total prizes available throughout the season, 2021 is angled to be an explosive year for Big Buck Hunter.

Whether you’re a newcomer or a Big Buck World Championship veteran, get ready for an event you won’t soon forget! Online qualifying runs from November 1st, 2019, to September 7th, 2021. Find a unit near you with the Big Buck Location Finder.
