(Seguin) -- Seguin's love for the great outdoors will not be camouflaged these next two days. Today marks day one of the 29th Annual Buck Fever fundraiser at the Seguin-Guadalupe County Coliseum.
Buck Fever President Rodney Bargfrede says the event, which salutes the great outdoors, will include a number of fun activities plus various business and educational booths.
"Wednesday night we will be having at 7:30, we will be having Gator Country will be coming. They were here last year and he does a really nice presentation. He'll bring some alligators and snakes and things like that out and we'll also have activities for the kids. We'll have a rock climbing wall, the fish tank and a pellet gun shoot for the kids and then also, we'll be selling our raffle tickets and silent auction and bucket raffle on Wednesday night also," said Bargfrede.
The main feature, however, continues to be the Horns Exhibit/Contest. Bargfrede says the Whitetail Horns Contest draws in plenty of entries.
"This year, we have 14 categories of horns. There will be horns from all over. Then, we also have an exotic division, or novelty division which you win prizes for being in them. There's all types, high fence, low fence, surrounding counties and several different events, but bring your horns out. There's a good chance you can win something," said Bargfrede.
Entries will continue to be accepted today between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. In addition, all entries must have been harvested in the season prior to this current Buck Fever contest.
All proceeds raised go to help support the Seguin Outdoor Learning Center, the Buck Fever Scholarship Program and other groups that focus on youth activities.
Activities will also include a 28 gun raffle, bucket raffle and silent auction. Family activities include rock wall climbing, a pellet gun shoot and fishing tank.
Tickets to Buck Fever are $6 for adults or $3 for students. There is no cost for kids ages six and under. Buck Fever will be held today and Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m. at the Coliseum.
