2022 Truck-Buck Shoot-Out Results
Wendell Duncan wins the truck; Adam Lomax places second and earns a Firminator.
Each time a Truck-Buck winner drives out of the Shoot-Out Arena in a brand new pick-up truck it is special. This year’s drive was more than a quarter century in the making. Twenty-seven years to be exact. Wendell Duncan’s road to winning it all began way back at the beginning of the 1994 Georgia deer season. That’s when the first-ever morning of public archery hunting was held at the then brand-new Flint River WMA in Dooly County.
GON was at the check station that morning when Wendell Duncan showed up with an awesome 8-point buck he had taken with his bow. Word began to spread that one of Wendell’s friends had an even bigger buck. Then Larry Nickelson drove up with his giant, a non-typical that netted 177 2/8. Larry won Week 1 of Truck-Buck that season, and then went on to win a new truck in the Shoot-Out the following summer.
Flash forward to the 2021-2022 deer season. Wendell Duncan has been hunting a Macon County tract for years, and he is still close friends with many of the same group who were on the ’94 Flint River WMA trip.
During the last week of last deer season, Wendell shot a 10-point buck that netted 145 even to win the Week 17 scoring period of Truck-Buck. Winning a week earned Wendell a new Savage rifle, an HSS safety harness, several bags of product from 4S Wildlife Solutions and a Shoot-Out shirt from Realtree.
And GON inexplicably put the name “Wilson” on the back of Wendell’s Shoot-Out shirt instead of “Duncan.” We’re getting Wendell a shirt with the correct name, but for the Shoot-Out he wore the Wilson shirt… and now he has a new nickname!
Wilson must be good luck.
Wendell hit the egg at 30 feet to outlast Week 3 winner Adam Lomax and Week 9 winner Cory Croft, who had both just missed the egg at 30 feet. Wendell won the truck, and then Adam and Cory shot it out for the second grand prize, a Firminator from Ranew’s Outdoor Equipment. Adam busted the egg on his third shot from 30 feet, earning the Firminator.
