gon just hosted the 2022 Youth Big-Buck Contest Shoot-Out on July 29th during the Ag-Pro Outdoor Blast (see results). We saw another young hunter compete and win a BB gun shooting contest to win a $3,000 shopping spree at outdoor adventure and a hunting weekend Woods-N-Water Outfitter.
Thanks to our great sponsors, another youngster will take home this grand prize as the Youth Big-Buck Contest returns for the 2022-2023 Georgia Deer season.
In addition to these amazing grand prizes for the Shoot-Out winner, each weekly winner – all 17 weeks of Georgia stag season – also wins a Rough road outdoors 30-can soft cooler ($149.99 retail) and a superb LockedOn 360 Mobile Gun Vise ($169 retail) – which is a great tool for safer and more efficient hunting for all ages, but especially for children. And each weekly youth winner receives a one-of-a-kind personalized Shoot-Out jersey.
The Youth Big-Buck Contest is organized through the Truck-Buck Contest. There is no separate entry process. All children 15 and under who enter dollars through Truck-Buck are also automatically enrolled in gon Big Buck competition for young people. One membership, one registration process — entry into two separate contests.
The key is that the young person or a parent must have a gon subscription 24 hours before the male is killed. Competitions are a huge advantage for gon member families. We have dozens of parents each season trying to sign up and get a young hunter in after a buck has been killed, but by then it’s too late to participate. We also have grandparents trying to enroll a child. Unless that child is your dependent and living with you, they cannot enter under a grandparent’s subscription.
The entry process is simple. Go to www.GON.com, complete an online entry and upload three photos. Another great advantage of our Youth Big-Buck contest is that children who enter the contest have a high chance of having their photo published in gon.
