MBN Trophies for 2014

The 2014 MBN Trophies are ready and waiting for YOU! We have been able to draw in some of the top MBN teams each year, and we know that’s because of our BIG prize money – but we’d also like to think it has a little to do with our coveted Bobby Rico Knives custom trophies. *smile*

This year’s trophies have been made even more special with the inclusion of the Grand Champion’s first-ever Rico Knives Cleaver!

Rico Knives Trophies 2014 WEB

Bobby Rico, maker of our MBN trophies, is a resident of Yazoo County, Mississippi, and a member of the Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi. His work has been featured in Garden & Gun magazine’s holiday gift guide, as well as many other publications including Delta Magazine, Delta Business Journal, and other hunting and outdoor magazines.

Bobby Rico Knives

Each of the trophy knives, one each for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the Whole Hog, Shoulder and Ribs categories, feature Bobby Rico’s signature styling, including a hand-made handle crafted of various woods, bone, and other fine materials, and the tell-tale feather patterning of Damascus steel in the blades. Each is truly a work of art that any of our teams would be proud to win.

But, you’ve got to be IN it to WIN it!  We’ve got $20,875 in CASH prizes up for grabs. Applications are due by the end of August, so get them in ASAP.  Spaces are limited! Click the link below right now to head to the Applications page.
