Score Some Bucks, Win New Bowtech Experience Bow
By Scott Bestul
All else being equal, the hunter with the most experience usually has the best shot at bagging a good buck. And when that Experience comes in the form of a great bow built by Bowtech, the odds are even better. Hurteau and I (along with test team members Will Brantley and Danny Hinton) recently put the Bowtech Experience through its paces in our annual Best of the Best bow test, and while I can’t reveal exactly where it placed in a field of hot shooters, rest assured it ranked high enough that I know this to be a very cool prize indeed.
So by now most of you know how this works. For those who don’t: Once a week for the next month, we’ll put up a field photo of a whitetail shot last fall. You’ll guess its gross B&C score and keep track of your guesses. Fractionals will count (and please, keep those fractionals in 1/8” increments per the B&C system). When we post the fourth buck, we’ll ask you to submit your total score, and the guy who’s closest will win the bow. In the event of a tie, we’ll post a fifth, tie-breaker deer.
So this is your first buck. Have at it and estimate its gross B&C score.
