Big Buck Hunter World Championship Saturday

Tomorrow a big arcade competition is going down, this time it’s the Big Buck Hunter Pro World Championship. We’ve mentioned this one previously when they held qualifying events and it would sure be fun to go and compete. Whoever wins this is going to walk away with $10,000 extra in their pocket so that in itself should be an exciting final match to watch. Full details are in the press release after the jump.
