Take a look at the second buck below in our scoring contest. Remember, you are playing for a brand-spanking new Mathews’ Z7 Xtreme , the company’s flagship bow for 2011 and a prize worth about $900.


If you are just joining us, here’s the deal: I will post a total of four bucks photos, one per week, for one month. (Click here if you missed the first one.) You will guess the gross B&C score of each and keep track of your guesses. Fractionals will count. When I post the final buck, I’ll ask you for your grand total. Whoever is closest wins the bow***. If there is a tie, we will have a tiebreaker buck.


And let me add this: While I am, of course, making an effort to choose bucks that have not be publicized, word does tend to get out about big whitetails. If by the vagaries of happenstance you actually know the gross score of the buck pictured, there isn’t much I can do about it except ask you keep it to yourself. Kindly don’t post your proof and potentially ruin the fun for everyone else.

Okay, enough of that. Here’s your next buck. What do you think it scores?

***You must be 14 or older to play; if you are under 18, we need a parent’s consent to ship the bow.
