Buck Scoring Contest: Win Bowtech’s New Mystery Flagship Bow
By Dave Hurteau
Tis the season of wishing for certain things without any certainty of what you’ll actually get — of giddy suspense with a dose of mystery. So in keeping with the season, Bowtech is putting up their brand-new 2014 flagship bow for a prize — so new, in fact, that it has not yet been released. Which means you boys and girls will have to wait until after Christmas (and in fact after the ATA show during the first week of January) to find out exactly what’s under the red ribbon. Meanwhile, the fact that Bowtech’s last two flagship bows won back-to-back F&S Best of the Best Awards means you should be very excited.
As usual, all you have to do is score some bucks. But we’ve got a twist here, too: blacktails and muleys. Bowtech, after all, is headquarted in Oregon, and why should this be easy?
Okay, most of you know the rules—and you know that we still need to review them each time. So: I will post a picture of a hunter-killed buck once a week here for four weeks. You guess the gross antler score of each buck (fractionals count) and keep track of your totals. When I post the photo of Buck Number Four, I’ll ask you to add up your grand total and submit it. If your guess is closest to the actual total score of the four bucks, you win the mystery bow.*
So, here’s Buck Number One, a great blacktail trophy. What’s his gross score?
*You must be at least 14 years old to play; if you are not yet 18, we will need to ship the bow to your parent or guardian.
