Will Altman Wins GON’s Youth Shoot-Out

Adventure Outdoors and Woods-N-Water award grand prizes!

Brad Gill | July 31, 2015

Will Altman, 12, of Statesboro, wasted little time going to Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna with $3,000 in his pocket. Will was enjoying his big shopping spree less than 24 hours after winning GON’s Youth Big-Buck Contest Shoot-Out on July 24 at GON’s Outdoor Blast at the Gwinnett Center.

For winning the Youth Shoot-Out, Will also won an additional grand prize—a dream deer and hog hunting trip with Woods-N-Water in Wrightsville. In addition to some quality father-and-son stand time, Will and his dad will be staying at a remote and quiet lodge, will be well fed, and they get to fish during the middle of the day.

“Will had the time of his life spending his winnings at Adventure Outdoors. What a dream experience. Christmas came early!” said Amy Altman, Will’s mom. “He is also looking forward to another dream experience with Woods-N-Water Hunting and Fishing Adventures when he gets to spend a weekend in the woods doing what he loves best—hunting!”

Will is going to be well-outfitted for his trip to Woods-N-Water after his shopping spree at Adventure Outdoors.

“He purchased a new Mathews bow, bow accessories, Rocky snake boots, a Streamlight flashlight, Mojo Dove Decoys, two Omega reels, three cases of shotgun shells, and even bought a few ‘school supplies,’ a pair of Under Armour tennis shoes and several shirts. He has a good bit left on his gift card, so he will enjoy another shopping adventure in the future,” said Amy.

“Will wants to thank GON magazine. All of the guys were so supportive and shared in his excitement when he won.”
