Announcing the Winner of the Bowtech RPM 360!

By Dave Hurteau

What’s that package on your front stoop? That big, rectangular cardboard box? Is that your brand new Bowtech RPM 360, the company’s 2014 flagship, their fastest bow ever, a prize worth a cool grand? Well, let’s find out.

But first, let me just say that you people are damn good. How good? We threw you nothing but curveballs in this contest; most of you are accustomed to rough-scoring whitetails, but we showed you two blacktails and two muleys (one in velvet) instead. And still, six of you guessed within a half inch of the actual total score—and one of you nailed it, right on the nose. Very impressive.

And so, speaking of the actual scores, here they are:

Buck 1: 149 6/8

Buck 2: 133 2/8

Buck 3: 161 7/8

Buck 4: 173 6/8

Which gives us a grand total of 618 5/8, which means that big cardboard box containing Bowtech’s latest compound will be on the front stoop of one Kevin Lilley, who guessed the score exactly, to the eighth. Hoytboy, IND_NRA, SK1971, Bbrant06, Centler, who missed winning the big prize by a bow-limb’s thickness, what can I tell you: Ouch! But buck up, we’ll give you another shot soon.  

Meanwhile, congrats, Kevin. We will be contacting you soon.

Congrats Kevin!! My only input on this contest in the near future is in case of a tie, have an email set up for scores to be sent instead of posting a score for everyone to see. The last tie for the Bowtech invasion was decided when one person posted a score of 147 and the person who tied him waited on the first guy to post his and then entered 147 1/8 and won the bow. Just my 2 cents. Thanks for the contest and all the good work at F&S!!

That was cool, but like cam before me I would change the rules. The total points each guess is off on each animal. Who is the better scorer? Person A guesses high by 10in on 2 animals and low by 10in on 2 animals-giving him the exact total score. Or person B who guesses exact on 3 animals and is off by 1/2in on the 4th animal. Possibility for a tie is nearly nonexistent with the small participants. JMO. Congrats to Kevin
