To compete for weekly prizes and a spot in the Truck-Buck Shoot-Out, an entrant’s rack must be officially scored during one of two GON scoring events. Any hunter with a buck entered in this season’s contest is invited to have the rack officially scored either in Tifton on Feb. 23 or in Madison March 9. Both dates, racks can be dropped off from 9 a.m. until noon. No racks will be accepted after the noon deadline. All racks will need to be picked up at a time specified the day of the event, likely around 2-3 p.m. Racks can’t be given back in any order based on when they were dropped off. Please bring patience! Weekly winners will also be required to come to the GON office in Madison for polygraph exams before competing in the Shoot-Out and winning contest prizes. Polygraph dates haven’t been set yet.
No mounted heads or racks with split skull plates will be scored. Entrants are not required to deliver or retrieve their racks in person. However, if the person retrieving the rack is someone other than the entrant, they must show their picture ID and a letter signed by the entrant saying who is picking up the rack. Racks can’t be picked up until Saturday afternoon. Everyone will be asked to show photo ID.
