Please read the official Gilland Chevrolet GMC and Gilland Ford Big Buck Bounty rules presented by The Radio People thoroughly for complete details.
Entering the Big Buck Bounty is very easy. Just take your buck harvest to David Collins Taxidermy, Backyard Cabin Taxidermy, or Flint’s Wild Game Processing in Fort Gaines. An address for each of these is located HERE. If you take a buck in Florida that you would like to enter, please call one of our taxidermists, and they will let you know where to take the deer for scoring. The taxidermist will score your deer and then take it to their shop for whatever mounting you choose. If you aren’t going to use one of these taxidermists to mount your deer, you’ll bring it at the end of the season for scoring to avoid caping and storage fees. Once your buck is scored, you’ll then decide to enter your harvest in the Bow, Women’s, or Youth divisions, if eligible, or it will go into the Open division. Weekly winners come are not specific to either division, just the highest scoring deer for that week. All winners other than weekly winners will be announced at the end of the season.

Make sure you get a picture with your harvest, so the taxidermist can send it in to put on the website.
Big Buck Bounty FAQ
DO I HAVE TO HAVE MY BUCK MOUNTED BY ONE OF THE TAXIDERMISTS TO ENTER IT INTO THE CONTEST?
NO! If you do not intend on having David Collins Taxidermy or Backyard Cabin Taxidermy mount your buck, you will bring your deer in for scoring on Tuesday, February 25th, after the season is over. All deer to be scored must be in the hands of one of our taxidermists by 8:00 p.m on Tuesday, February 25th, 2020.
I KILLED A NICE BUCK WHILE HUNTING IN GEORGIA (OR FLORIDA), AND ALABAMA LAW SAYS I CAN’T BRING IT ACROSS STATE LINES INTO ALABAMA TO ONE OF THE TAXIDERMISTS TO BE SCORED. CAN I STILL ENTER THE CONTEST?
YES! If you killed your deer in Georgia, take it to Flint’s Wild Game Processing in Fort Gaines for scoring. If it’s a Florida deer, give one of our taxidermists a call and they will tell you where to take it for scoring. Our taxidermists make a trip to these businesses at least a couple times each week to score deer for the contest.
WHEN ARE WEEKLY WINNERS ANNOUNCED?
The weekly contest starts the week ending Saturday, Oct. 26, and runs for 16 weeks. We will announce the weekly winner each Tuesday on WTVY, WKMX, and WDJR.
