BUCK KNIVES ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF THE EDGE OF A LEGEND FISHING SWEEPSTAKES
Grand Prize G3 Boats® Angler V185F to be Awarded

Buck Knives is pleased to announce the winners of the "Edge of a Legend Fishing Sweepstakes."

Trent M. was selected from over 2.9 million entries to win the Grand Prize G3 Boats® Angler V185F aluminum boat with trailer and Yamaha VF150 SHO outboard, decked out with Raymarine® electronics, a Power-Pole® Shallow Water Anchor, Astral life vests and fishing supplies from Strike King®, Lew's®, Seaguar®, Plano, Frabill®, Lucas Oil, Vicious® Vision sunglasses, an iON camera and of course many Buck knives. Over $60,000 in value!

When contacted regarding his Grand Prize win, Trent didn't believe it and felt it must be a scam. He then went on to say that he had found out about the sweepstakes after purchasing a knife and reading the note in the box. The note, which has been around for nearly 40 years, is included in all Buck knives and contains a message from the Buck family that speaks of Buck's growth and the determination to keep God the Senior Partner. After reading the message, Trent was compelled to know more about Buck Knives and while searching the Buck Knives website, ran across the fishing sweepstakes. "Great testimony," said Trent. "How wonderful it is that a company is giving glory where the glory should go."
