Congratulations to all of the winning teams in the February 2017 WTBBC, and thank you to all who entered. Our total team count was 695 teams. We weighed 76 qualified bobcats, and paid out $139,000 in prize money. We had an enormous turnout at weigh-in. Thank you all for your patience while we adjusted to the new location and flow of things. We ran a little longer than usual this time, but overall we really like the setup at the new place. We will make adjustments for the March contest and be back running efficiently.
WTBBC would like to thank everyone 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 contest.
