Hurteau: Announcing The Buck-Scoring Contest Winner

By Dave Hurteau

And we have a winner.

But first, let me detail just how good you people are. In the last contest, an astounding 20 percent of contestants guessed within 5 inches of the actual total gross score of our four bucks. I figured you’d have a tougher go with sub-P&Y-class bucks this time around, and you did. But not much. Twenty-three contestants—more than 15 percent of you—guessed within 5 inches, including former winner buddyboy25 and former finalists mwmrtn and Taylor1. You guys are studs. Okay, let’s get to the buck’s:

Buck #1, my first bow buck, grosses 95 1/8. Buck #2, B&C Big Game Records Assistant Director Justin Spring’s Montana whitetail, goes 96 4/8. Buck #3, young Jake Pyne’s fine North Woods buck, tallies 84 2/8. And Buck #4, Marv Bestul’s first bow buck, at age 78, grosses 76 1/8. That means that the total gross B&C score for all four bucks is 352 even. And that means that one hunter will soon see the world far more clearly through a new pair of Cabela’s Alaskan Guide binoculars—in his choice of 8x42 or 10x42—a prize worth about $500. The winner is… Ethan3—just 3/8s of an inch off with his guess of 351 5/8. Congrats Ethan3. Enjoy the binoculars. I’ll be contacting you very soon.

So now I know just to wait for mwmrtn, buddyboy, and Taylor to post and get right in their mix... You're right Bestul these guys are scary good and studs!

Congratulations Ethan. Did you just guess or get out a micrometer and multiply by the sizing of a know object such as a gun or hat? Three eighths of an inch? I wish I had a gun that could shoot that close at 100 yards. Simply incredible...
