If you have a buck entered in the 2023-2024 GON Truck-Buck Contest or Youth Big Buck Contest, there’s still an important step at the end of the season. To compete for weekly prizes and a spot in the Truck-Buck Shoot-Out, an entrant’s rack must be officially scored during one of two GON scoring events. Any hunter with a buck entered in this season’s contest is invited to have the rack officially scored either in Tifton on March 9 or on March 16 at the old GON office between Madison and Eatonton on Seven Islands Road.

On those dates, racks can be dropped off from 9 a.m. until noon. No racks will be accepted after the noon deadline. All racks must be picked up at a time specified the day of the event, likely between 1 to 2:30 p.m. It is impossible to return racks back in any order based on when they were dropped off. Also, we absolutely cannot accommodate special circumstances like a ball game, wedding, etc. and usher a rack through more quickly. Plan on it taking most of the day. Please bring patience! Winners will be required to take polygraph exams this spring at the GON office before competing in the Shoot-Out and earning contest prizes.

No mounted heads or racks with split skull plates can be scored. We will measure velvet racks and European skull mounts.

Entrants are not required to deliver or retrieve their racks in person. However, if the person retrieving the rack is someone other than the entrant, they must show their picture ID and a letter signed by the entrant saying who is picking up the rack. Everyone picking up a rack will be asked to show photo ID.
