Silver Bugle Hunt

Silver Bugle Hunt Participants

From 1941 thru 1958 a rivalry raged between Tarleton and North Texas Agricultural College which was highlighted each Fall by the presentation of the silver bugle to the winner of the annual football game. The winner maintained “bragging rights” to the bugle until the following year’s game. NTAC won the final game in 1958, and in the years since, the hated “Grubs” (NTAC) have lost or misplaced the silver bugle. To commemorate this event, a university wide scavenger hunt to “search for the silver bugle” is held each year during Tarleton Homecoming week.
