Truck-Buck Contest 2020-2021 Scoring Results
The second of two scoring events for GON’s Truck-Buck Contest and the GON Youth Big-Buck Contest was held in Madison on Saturday, Feb. 27.
From among the more than 700 entries during the 2020-21 deer season, we now have the numbers crunched and know which hunters are in line to make the prestigious trip to the Outdoor Blast for the Truck-Buck Shoot-Out and the kids who qualify for the Youth Big-Buck Contest Shoot-Out. Only GON subscribers or their dependents who entered bucks during the season could get their racks measured during the Truck-Buck scoring events.
The hunters in the No. 1 spots for a scoring period or wildcard will be contacted by GON sometime before the second week of April to get their invitations to the Shoot-Out. In the Truck-Buck contest, there’s a winner each week and in four wildcard categories.
The Shoot-Out is a pellet-rifle competition to decide who wins a brand-new Silverado from contest sponsor John Megel Chevrolet. The weekly winners also earn a Mathews bow (retail value $1,100) during archery season, a CVA muzzleloader (retail value $700) during the Week 5 primitive-weapons/youth season, or a Browning deer rifle (retail value $1,140) during 12 weeks of gun season. Truck-Buck weekly winners also earn an HSS safety harness, a Talon Hip Holster skinning set from Havalon and some deer attractant and deer minerals from 4S Wildlife. Those one-of-kind Shoot-Out shirts for all Truck-Buck and Youth Big-Buck Contest contestants are again thanks to our friends at Realtree,
In addition, GON also has a separate contest for kids, the Youth Big-Buck Contest, with weekly qualifiers for their own Shoot-Out. There is one youth-contest winner per week, and those kids compete in a BB rifle Shoot-Out for a $3,000 shopping spree at Adventure Outdoors and a weekend hunting trip to Woods-N-Water. Each weekly youth winner—all 17 weeks of Georgia’s deer season—also earns a personalized Shoot-Out jersey from Realtree, plus an awesome LockedOn 360 Mobile Gun Vise—a super tool for safe and more effective hunting for all ages, but especially kids. See the Youth Big-Buck Contest Results.
The GON contests are determined after the official scoring of racks done by certified Boone & Crockett measurers using the Boone & Crockett/Pope & Young system. Scores are B&C/P&Y net. To compare typical versus non-typical racks, divide the net scores into the minimums for B&C all-time record books; 170 for typicals and 195 for non-typicals. The higher percentage ranks higher.
Key: (b) bow; (c) crossbow; (m) muzzleloader; (y) youth; (l) ladies; (pl) public-land; (*) non-typical
