Okay then, who wants a new bow? Who wants a brand-spanking new Bear Attack? The friendly folks at Bear Archery will send it right to your doorstep. All you have to do is take a close look at this fine-looking buck taken by F&S Deputy Editor Jay Cassell (continuing the theme of F&S Bucks) and guess it’s gross B&C score. Then add it to your guesses for the first three bucks (linked below), and post your grand total in the comment section of this post. Remember, fractionals count.


Whoever’s grand total is closest to that of the four bucks’ actual gross scores (which I will post next Friday) wins Bear’s flagship compound bow for 2010, worth about $750. If there’s a tie, I will post another buck for the finalists to guess at.

Now keep in mind, a buck was disqualified early in the contest. So let’s be absolutely clear: The four bucks you should include in your grand-total guess are the one pictured above and the three linked below:

Buck #1
Buck #2
Buck #3

Finally, you must be at least 14 years old to play; if you are under 18, we will need to send the bow to your folks. Only your first guess counts (unless it’s an obvious typo or such). If you win and we find out that you are a friend or family member of one of the hunters shown, or if you are affiliated with Bear Archery, then we are going to drive to your house, knock on your door, give you an atomic wedgie, and take the bow back.

Okay, great. Go for it–and good luck.
