HATTIESBURG, Miss - The five month contest is officially over and two lucky winners of the 4th annual Buck Fever contest took home brand new four wheelers.

The winner of the Adult Division, Brett Robinson scored 151 5/8 in Jones county.

The winner of the Youth Division, 15, Robert Sandford scored one 126 6/8 in Convington county.

"Well last year I killed a pretty decent deer, I think I came in 5th or 6th, so I tried to stay calm and hope for the best this year" Sandford said as his mother mentioned he was nervous the past five months.
