Best Buck Contest

Terms & conditions: German-Bliss Equipment is not associated with the IDNR during this contest; therefore all bucks must be harvested legally by the IDNR guidelines with proper permit and tag. All bucks must be legally tagged before photos are taken to be accepted into the contest. If there is failure to comply, the contestant will be removed from the contest. Winners of the 2018 Best Buck Contest will be judged by Sharkey Outfitters. Please note: scoring will not take place as there is no logical means to do so. The Best Buck winners will be based on a variety of traits including but not limited to: antler size, shape, mass, points, body mass, and other traits deemed as valid. Contestants must pre-register by September 30, 2018 at as well as take a photo at a German-Bliss Equipment location during business hours from October 1, 2018 – January 20, 2019 to qualify. All photos will be posted on German-Bliss social media and online outlets.

We would like to thank Sharkey Outfitters for judging the
