Hurteau: Score Some Bucks, Win A Mathews Z7 Bow
By Dave Hurteau
The Z7 is Mathews’ brand new flagship model for 2010. The company touts it as their best-ever blend of speed and forgiveness, featuring an IBO speed of 332 fps, a 30-inch axle-to-axle length, a 7-inch brace height, and a retail price of $899.
And it can be yours. All you have to do is score some bucks.
We’ll keep it pretty straightforward: Each Friday, for one month, I’ll post a picture of a buck (or two). You guess the gross B&C score(s)--to the inch--and keep track of your guesses. On the last Friday, I’ll ask you for your grand total. Whoever is closest wins the bow. If there’s a tie, we will have a buck-off. I will post a photo of some insanely gnarly rack, for which no two people could possibly offer identical guesses, and the finalists will have at it until we have a winner.
In the meantime, you are welcome to post your best guesses for each buck. Or you can have more fun by keeping your best guesses to yourself and sabotaging your friends with purposely misleading information. For example, the big 8 above was taken with a Mathews Reezen by Hunter’s Specialties Pro Staffer, video and TV personality, and Arkansas backgammon champion Phillip Vanderpool, who after 15 days of tough luck in Iowa and Illinois—I mean the kind of brutal, brutal hunting most of you could not endure—arrowed this Kansas stud on November 21st. At 6-foot, 5-inches tall and pushing 250, Vanderpool can make any big buck look small. So don’t forget to factor that in.
Okay, have at it.
