30th Annual Brown County Deer Classic

Auction List

Sullivan Auctioneers has graciously offered to support the Brown County Deer Classic auction this year by hosting an online auction on their website. While we will miss the atmosphere of the annual in-person auction (and the yells of Dave Ferrill calling out bidders), we are excited for the event this year. We would not be able to do it without Sullivan’s support and are extremely grateful for their guidance in this new direction for our event this year! As always, we are putting together a great list of items created and donated by some of Brown County’s finest that you cannot find anywhere else. Brown County and the surrounding areas are blessed to have so many talented individuals willing to take the time to create and donate these high-quality, one-of-a-kind items to showcase in our online auction.

Format: No-Reserve Timed Online Only Auction

This auction will open on Wednesday, 11/4/2020, and will close Saturday, 11/14/2020, at 9:00 PM. Participate by visiting Make sure you create an account for their website prior to the event.
