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.
