Youth Big-Buck Contest Adds Second Grand Prize For 2023

17 weekly prizes, plus a $3,000 shopping spree and outdoor weekend and CVA rifle.

New this season, BPI Outdoors is awarding a CVA Scout rifle to the second-place finisher in the BB gun Shoot-Out. Seventeen weekly prizes, plus two grand prizes in the Shoot-Out.

The 2023 Youth Big-Buck Contest Shoot-Out was held July 28 during the Ag-Pro Outdoor Blast. We watched another young hunter, Cody Gay, compete and win a BB gun shooting contest to earn a $3,000 shopping spree at Adventure Outdoors and a weekend hunt at Woods-N-Water Outfitters.

Thanks to our great sponsors, another youngster will win that grand prize as the Youth Big-Buck Contest returns for the 2023-2024 Georgia deer season. Plus, this year BPI Outdoors is joining our great team of sponsors and will award a CVA Scout rifle to the second-best shot in next year’s Youth Shoot-Out.

In addition to those grand prizes for the Shoot-Out winners, each weekly winner—all 17 weeks of Georgia’s deer season—earns a Rugged Road Outdoors 65 V2 Cooler ($349.99 retail), and a LockedOn 360 Mobile Gun Vise ($169 retail)—a super tool for safe and more effective hunting for all ages, but especially kids. And each youth weekly winner gets a one-of-a-kind personalized Shoot-Out jersey.

Wyatt Coleman won the 2022 Youth Shoot-Out. Eric Wallace hosted Wyatt and his family for a $3,000 shopping spree at Adventure Outdoors.

The Youth Big-Buck Contest is conducted through the Truck-Buck contest. There is no separate entry process. All kids 15 and younger who enter bucks through Truck-Buck are also automatically entered in GON’s Youth Big-Buck Contest. One $25 membership, one entry process—two separate contests.

The key is that the youth or a parent must have a GON subscription 24 hours before the buck is killed. The contests are a huge perk for GON member families. We have parents each season who try to subscribe and get a young hunter entered after a buck is killed, but at that point it’s too late to participate. We also have grandparents who try to enter a child—but unless that grandchild is a dependent and living with you, he or she can’t enter under a grandparent’s subscription.

Entering a buck is very easy. Go to, complete the online entry form, upload three pictures, and click send. A great bonus of the Youth Big-Buck Contest is that kids entered in the contest have a great chance of their picture being published in GON.
