Youth Big-Buck Contest 2023-24 Scoring Results

Brad Gill | April 5, 2024

Week 2 winner Smisson Rigdon had the highest scoring buck in GON’s Youth Big-Buck Contest. His Houston County bow-kill scored 156 1/8 inches.

The second of two scoring events for GON’s Truck-Buck and Youth Big-Buck contests was held in Madison on Saturday, March 16.

We measured a number of racks from youth hunters, 15 and younger, who showed up to have their bucks scored in the hopes of moving on to the GON Youth Big-Buck Shoot-Out. The winner of that BB-rifle competition will win a $3,000 shopping spree at Adventure Outdoors and a weekend hunting trip to Woods-N-Water.

The second-place shooter in the GON Youth Big-Buck Shoot-Out will take home a CVA Scout break-action .243 centerfire rifle from BPI Outdoors.

Each weekly youth winner—all 17 weeks of Georgia’s deer season—also earns a personalized Shoot-Out jersey from Realtree, a cooler from Rugged Road Outdoors, plus an awesome LockedOn 360 Mobile Gun Vise—a super tool for safe and more effective hunting for all ages, but especially kids.

The youth winners from each week will receive invitations to the Youth Big-Buck Shoot-Out in the coming weeks.

Winners were determined after official scoring of racks done by certified Boone & Crockett measurers using the Boone & Crockett/Pope & Young system. Scores are B&C/P&Y net scores, after deductions.

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.
