What’s that? You didn’t get a new compound bow for Christmas? Well buck up. You can still win Bowtech’s brand-new 2014 flagship model, and this one is guaranteed to be newer than any that the other boys and girls got last week, because this one hasn’t even been released yet. I will find out–and report to you–exactly what it is at next week’s ATA Show. To win it, all you have to do, as usual, is score some bucks.

So here is the second buck in our contest. If you missed the first, click here. To recap: 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 bow.*

So, here’s Buck Number Two, another nice blacktail. (As you can see, the right beam is very slightly cut off in the picture, but you’re not missing anything; there’s no kicker or additional tine.) 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.
