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 and approved (your entry is showing up on the website) in this season’s contest is invited to have the rack officially scored either in Tifton on Feb. 21 or in Madison on Feb. 28.
Both dates, racks can be dropped off from 9 a.m. until noon. No racks will be accepted after the noon deadline.
All racks must be picked up at a time specified the day of the event, likely between 1-3 p.m. It is impossible to give racks back in any order based on when they were dropped off. We cannot accommodate special circumstances and usher a rack through more quickly. Plan on it taking most of the day. Please bring patience!
Winners will be required to take polygraph exams before competing in the Shoot-Out and earning contest prizes.
No mounted heads or racks with split skull plates will be scored. We will measure velvet racks this year; however, if a velvet rack wins a scoring period that it might not win without the velvet, it will be required that the velvet be stripped and the rack re-scored before winning a scoring period.
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. Everyone picking up a rack will be asked to show photo ID.
