How Does the Tournament Work?

The Big Buck World Championship features an in person head-to-head, double-elimination bracket. One loss will send players to the “Reload” side to fight their way back, but a 2nd loss means elimination!

Each match is 1 trek (5 hunting sites and a bonus game) with the exception of the final, which is a full 3-trek adventure (15 sites, 3 bonuses). If the survivor of the Reload side wins, a 2nd adventure is played!

The last hunter standing hoists Pappy's Jug and a check for $20,000!

Whether first or last, all contestants win cash prizes; with special bonus payouts for top-performing ladies and rookies!

All Division bonuses are in addition to earnings from the main tournament prize pool.
Ladies Division bonuses are paid out to top 16 female players. Top is awarded Leading Lady honors.
Rookie Division bonuses are paid out to top 8 first-time Championship competitors. Top is awarded Rookie of the Year honors.
