BIG RAPIDS - The Pioneer Big Buck Contest continues as the firearm season ends today but the bow season continues through Jan 1.

There are two divisions in the contest with firearm and archery. The firearm season can include deer harvested by muzzleloaders in December.

Deer harvested late in the firearm season this week can still be entered. The entire body needs to be brought in. Hunters can enter at three locations: the Pioneer at 115 N. Michigan Ave., Remus Repair and Remus Lumber, during normal business hours.

Since the bow season continues through December, entries can be submitted within a few days after the end of archery season.
