Wyatt Coleman Wins GON’s Youth Shoot-Out
Adventure Outdoors, Woods-N-Water, LockedOn 360, Rugged Road Outdoors, Realtree and Georgia 4-H are the reasons GON can host an awesome youth deer contest in Georgia.
Wyatt Coleman, 16, of Gay, collected a $3,000 shopping spree from Adventure Outdoors after winning GON’s Youth Big-Buck Contest Shoot-Out on July 29 at GON’s Outdoor Blast. In addition, Wyatt won a dream deer and hog hunting trip with Woods-N-Water outfitters in Wilkinson County. Wyatt and a parent get to stay at a remote lodge, enjoy some fun hunting and have some fantastic country cooking.
Wyatt was the only shooter who hit the Round 6 target, a mini Nilla wafer at 25 feet. That busted wafer crowned him champ.
“I just prayed I would hit that last shot, and I ended up making it. It feels real good to win the Shoot-Out,” said Wyatt.
Wyatt didn’t indicate that he was watching GON.com super close when he entered his Week 3 buck.
“I entered it and hoped I would get lucky,” said Wyatt. “I’ve been deer hunting since I was about 6 years old and mainly just been hunting with my dad on his property. I learned to love to hunt through my life.”
Wyatt said that while he really likes deer hunting, the contest for prizes is just an added benefit to getting a really good hunting magazine and shooting a super buck.
“I read the GON usually about every morning, it’s a good magazine,” said Wyatt. “Usually when I get it, I like to look at the Spy-Cam and see all the different pictures in there.”
Wyatt didn’t waste any time collecting his $3,000 shopping spree at Adventure Outdoors. In fact, the young man left packing some pretty serious heat. He bought a Beretta APX-A1 pistol, a Beretta A300 Ultima shotgun, a Bergara Ridge hunting rifle and a Ruger AR15.
