2022 BIG BUCK CONTEST

RULES & REGULATIONS

 

PRE-REGISTRATION:  You must pre-register at Big Ray’s prior to hunting and present a valid Alaska hunting license and deer harvest tickets at the time of registration. There will be no exceptions made. There is no registration fee.

TIME FRAME:  Only bucks taken between August 1, 2022 and December 15, 2022 will be considered eligible for the contest. 

BOUNDARIES:  Any buck taken in Game Management Unit 8, as defined by the 2022-2023 State of Alaska Hunting Regulations, will be eligible for entry into the contest.

ENTRIES & SCORING:  Antler entries will be accepted between August 1, 2022 and December 15, 2022.  Only one set of antlers, per contestant, may be entered. Any other contest(s) entered with the same antlers automatically disqualifies the contestant from this contest. Big Ray’s will conduct the scoring at their convenience, based on Safari Club International Method 18T scoring standards after the close of the contest. Non-typical racks maybe entered but only typical tines will count in the score. Antlers will only be scored if left with Big Ray’s for contest purposes. No antlers will be measured in the velvet. Antlers will be accepted for scoring only when the skullcap is cleaned of all hide, hair, eyes, brain, and blood. Scoring is based on SCI standards but does not constitute an official SCI Score. The judging decision of Big Ray’s will be final.

PRIZES:  Prizes will be awarded in several categories. Prize winning categories include:

  •   BIG BUCK:  The highest scoring antlers based on Safari Club International standards, Method 18T.  The winner of this prize will not be eligible for the LUCKY BUCK.
  •   2ND THROUGH 10TH PLACE: Determined accordingly based on score.
  •   LUCKY BUCK (RANDOM DRAWING PRIZE):  Determined by a random drawing of all racks entered.
  •   LITTLE BUCK:  The lowest scoring antlers based on Safari Club International standards, Method 18T. 

WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED WHEN FINAL SCORING IS COMPLETED - JANUARY 2023.
