How The Weeks Were Won: Truck-Buck 2017-2018 Season

GON Staff | July 10, 2018

Another Georgia deer hunter will soon drive away from the Outdoor Blast in a new pickup truck after GON’s Truck-Buck Shoot-Out. We met the first half of the 2018 Shoot-Out field last month in the June issue of GON. This month we meet the winners from Weeks 9 through 17, plus our Runner-Up and Ladies wildcard winners.

The Shoot-Out is GON’s annual pellet rifle competition where we’ll award two grand prizes—a new 4×4 Chevy pick-up truck from John Megel Chevrolet and a customized Beast hunting cart.

The event is full of drama, and it’s a blast to watch. If you’ve never seen the excitement that comes with winning a brand-new pickup truck, make plans to attend this year’s Shoot-Out.

The preliminary North vs. South heads-up matches are Saturday, July 28. On the line Saturday will be Mathews bows, Browning rifles, a CVA and spots in the finals. The Truck-Buck finals are Sunday, July 29 at 3 p.m. The Shoot-Out is at the Infinite Energy Center during GON’s Outdoor Blast.

The shooters who win their heads-up matches on Saturday also earn a bow from Mathews, a Browning X-Bolt Stainless Stalker rifle or a CVA muzzleloader, while the weekly winners who lose preliminary matches win Hunter Safety System (HSS) harnesses and Tink’s prize packages.
