Riley Huff Wins 2018 Shoot-Out
A Morgan County buck qualified Riley for the Truck-Buck contest Shoot-Out, and two pressure-packed shots in a row earned him the truck.
Sunday at the Outdoor Blast is Shoot-Out finals day, when our big-buck contest weekly winners compete for a Chevy truck and a Beast electric hunting vehicle. This year’s 29th Shoot-Out did not disappoint, as Riley Huff and Jay Maxwell put on a show for a packed crowd after they outlasted the competition to make the final two.
At that point, Jay and Riley were grand-prize winners, but we had to decide who won the truck and who won the Beast. After three misses in a row for both, they both busted the egg in Round 10. In the 11th round, Jay missed, and Riley hit for the second time in a row to earn the truck. From Riley’s vocal cheering section, there were tears of joy and shrieks of “Daddy! Daddy!” from Riley’s daughters.
Sunday qualifiers were already big winners at the Shoot-Out. The five bow season weekly winners earned Mathews Halon bows, and the 11 winners during gun season earned Browning X-Bolt Stalker rifles. That is 16 weekly prizes valued at more than $1,000 each! Plus, the Week 6 winner during the primitive-weapons season won a CVA Accura MR SS muzzleloader with a scope and case, and the wildcard qualifiers all won knives from Havalon.
