During the opening weekend of deer season, CEO's and business leaders from across the country will join Governor Mary Fallin on a hunt for some of Oklahoma's prize bucks. Oklahoma Southeast, a regional economic development group, has been assisting with the hunt preparations and will help host the event at Wildcat Springs Ranch outside Ada.

Guests at the event will have the opportunity to take part in a guided deer hunt with Governor Fallin. They will also participate in a roundtable discussion that will feature the benefits of doing business in Oklahoma. Oklahoma Southeast also hosts the Lt. Governor's Turkey Hunt in Hugo and their Golf and Striper Event at Lake Texoma each year. They hope to make the Governor's Big Buck Invitational an annual event in Ada. Oklahoma Southeast events have helped to secure numerous projects and create countless jobs in the southeast quadrant of the state.

Mike Southard, President & CEO of the Ada Jobs Foundation, is currently serving as Chairman on Oklahoma Southeast. He stated, "We are excited to host this inaugural event in the Ada area and are looking forward to showcasing the area as the ideal location to do business. We hope the event is successful and becomes an annual event."

Guests range from high-ranking site locators to CEO's of international corporations. They will participate in a variety of activities aside from deer hunting. It's estimated that approximately 150 people from across the state will attend the community dinner on Saturday night.
