JAY?- Ward Lumber is pleased to announce the 20th anniversary of the annual Buck Contest with bigger prizes, more ways to win and new scoring system.
Ward Lumber invites sportsmen and women deer hunting this season in the Northern Zone to take their bucks to Ward Lumber in Jay to enter the contest. There are now three ways to win: biggest buck, smallest buck (new), and random drawing. New this year, the biggest buck and smallest buck winners will be determined by calculating the weight multiplied by the points. Biggest buck wins a $250 Ward Lumber gift card (was $100). The new smallest buck category wins a $50 Ward Lumber gift card. All other entries are put into a random drawing to win a $100 Ward Lumber Gift Card. All contestants will receive a baseball cap just for entering. No pre-registration is required.
All hunters will be photographed with their bucks for promotional purposes. If you supply an email address at the time of entry, we will email the photo to you also. The contest is free, and runs through Saturday, Dec. 8. A winner in each category will be selected after Dec. 8. Enter at Ward Lumber at 697 Glen Road in Jay during business hours Monday through Friday 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. The Jay store is closed on Sunday.
