GON's 34th Annual Truck-Buck Contest
There's is no deer contest anywhere in the country like the one Georgia deer hunters have in GON's Truck-Buck Shoot-Out. Back for the 34th year during the 2022-23 Georgia deer season, Truck-Buck again has weekly and wildcard winners who earn scoring-period prizes and qualify for the Shoot-Out finals. With a grand prize truck, a second grand prize Firminator, and weekly prize packages valued at more than $1,500, this contest is crazy good. You must be an annual GON subscriber before a buck is killed to be eligible for the contest (monthly subscribers are not eligible).
