Win Big With GON’s Truck-Buck Contest

We give away a bow or gun each week of deer season and a grand prize 4x4 pickup truck. Shoot a Georgia buck, and you could win!

Every season we hear some sad stories from longtime GON subscribers who forgot to renew their memberships… “First time in 10 years I let my subscription run out…”

You know what happened next. They killed the biggest buck of their lives, and that dream of taking part in the Truck-Buck contest, the pageantry of the Shoot-Out, the articles and Wall of Fame display at the Outdoor Blast—the chance for a truck… missed.

Don’t be that guy or gal this season who misses out. Pick up the phone and call (800) 438-4663 or go online at, and renew your subscription. If your membership has lapsed or you’ve never been a GON subscriber, it’s time.

This deer season will see another Georgia deer hunter win a 4×4 Chevy pickup truck. It’s become a Georgia hunting tradition—the Truck-Buck contest with weekly winners all through deer season and a grand-prize Shoot-Out the next summer.

Entering is simple. When you kill a buck, take some photos and go to to fill out an online entry form and upload three pictures.

The Truck-Buck contest is divided into scoring periods that coincide with the weeks of deer season. Each week, the best buck entered from the Northern Zone and the best buck from the Southern Zone win great prizes and earn a spot in the Shoot-Out. You don’t have to kill the biggest buck in the state, just the highest-scoring buck during a week of the deer season in your hunting zone. Hunters can also make the Shoot-Out through four wildcard divisions: Youth, Ladies, Public Land and Runner-Up. Two hunters from each category will qualify—the largest for both the Northern and Southern zones.

Here’s the confirmed prizes so far:

• A new 4×4 Chevy Silverado pickup truck from John Megel Chevrolet.

• 12 Browning X-Bolt Stainless Stalker deer rifles.

• 4 Mathews bows.

• 42 one-of-a-kind personalized GON “Show Shirts” from Realtree.

• 17 HSS Ultralite X-Treme harnesses from Hunter Safety System.

• 17 prize packages of scent products from Tinks.

• A .50 Caliber CVA Accura MR Muzzleloader with scope and case.

There are no check stations. Simply kill a buck, take good photos, and then enter online by clicking here. You can also use the entry form on page 72 of the September issue of GON.

And make sure kids 15 and under know all about the Youth Big-Buck contest (click here). It’s a bonus contest just for kids.

$1,000 HSS Bonus

Make it a point to put on your Hunter Safety System (HSS) harness when you take your Truck-Buck entry photos. If you win a week or a wildcard spot in the Shoot-Out, and then go on to win the Truck-Buck Shoot-Out, HSS will add a $1,000 bonus to go along with your brand-new pickup truck.
