Congratulations to all of the winning teams in the January 2017 WTBBC, and thank you to all who entered. Our total team count was 629 teams, that’s exactly 100 teams more than our previous record set last March. We weighed 65 qualified bobcats, and paid out $125,800 in prize money. We had an enormous turnout at weigh-in. We attribute that to the growth of the contest, and partly to the fact that we are paying out 5 places now. You just never know if that 24 pound cat might slip into 5th place.
WTBBC would like to thank all those who entered for supporting the contest. It wouldn’t continue growing as it has without your help in spreading the word. Keep telling all of your hunting buddies about it!!
Also, please show our sponsors your appreciation of their support by visiting their websites or establishments, and patronizing them when they can be of service to you.
We look forward to seeing you all again for the February 25th contest.
