2021 Nominees



Bucks for the Brave




The men and women that served in our armed forces and as first responders, had jobs that required them to be willing to sacrifice their own lives every day, to protect or save someone else’s. Not many of us can say that, nor understand what that truly means. The things they’ve had to see, and the sacrifices they’ve made in their daily lives, can have a profound impact on them. Bucks for the Brave is a platform that allows the loved ones and communities that support these heroes, to share their stories and unite us all in honoring and recognizing their service to our great nation.

This contest allows you to nominate Veterans (no longer serving) and retired First Responders (Law Enforcement and Firefighters) to win the hunting experience of a lifetime. This all-inclusive hunt (as defined in our official rules and regulations) will take place Veteran's Day Weekend, November 11-15, 2021, at Trinity Oak’s Thumbtack Ranch in Batesville, TX. We will be awarding one winner from each of our seven categories: Air Force Veteran, Army Veteran, Coast Guard Veteran, Marine Corps Veteran, Navy Veteran, Retired Firefighter and Retired Law Enforcement. SEVEN HEROES WILL WIN!


Honor and recognize the Hero in your life! Submit a photo along with a short essay as to why this Hero should be chosen to win. All nominations must be submitted by September 12th

Please note, nominees must no longer be serving in the military, this includes Active Duty, National Guard or Reserves. Firefighters and Law Enforcement must be retired and no longer working in those roles. See our official rules for more information.


Nominees will be contacted to verify eligibility (see official rules and regulations) and availability to attend the hunt scheduled for November 2021. ONE (1) hero from each category will be selected by a committee made up of contest partners, Veterans and Retired First Responders. These 7 heroes will be our Grand Prize Winners that will be announced on October 8, 2021.
