Time to start thinking about a deer contest here on the sight. What do you all think.
This is a "deer" contest not a "big buck" contest... everyone gets credit for shooting their deer (whatever kind, muley, whitetail, blacktail, doe or buck, big or small) however legal way they choose (bow, shotgun, muzzleloader, etc... motor vehicles not allowed ). Everyone will be regulated by the game limits and laws for where they hunt (including if you hunt multiple states). Issues of QDM, P&Y or B&C scoring, deer densities, weight of deer, etc. do not apply.
5 points for a deer. Buck or Doe.
1 point for every point on a rack of 1 inch or more added to the 5 points.
Participant score will consist of 1 deer. If you are allowed to shoot more than 1 deer you may upgrade your score by submitting the new deer, this will cancel out your previous deer.

September 1st names will be randomly drawn from a hat to determine teams and then post the results. Depending on interest, teams to consist of 5-10 participants (or whatever # is easiest to fit everyone on a team). With the team score consisting of the total of it's participants scores. This is a completely random draw with no consideration to age or states hunted.
To submit an entry a participant must include in the "Contest Entry" post
- your screen name and the number of tines that are longer than 1 inch (main beam counts), if applicable.
- a photo of himself/herself with the deer
- photo(s) that all scorable tines can be seen in. If 1 inch tine is questionable supply a photo with a measurement against the tine for verification.

** If you have issues with scanning or posting your photos I would be happy to help you out or post them for you, just send me a PM.
Contest ends on X date (1 week after the last deer season in the USA/Canada - I'll check what that is and then edit this post OR can end sooner if all participants seasons are over and all participants have their desired entries in).
In case of a tie, the participant scores will be arranged in descending order, the scores will be compared in that order with the highest particiapant score indicating the winning team. In the odd case of a tie past this the team names will be put in a hat and drawn, whoever is pulled is the winner.
The highest scoring team will be recognized.
Lastly... please remember this is for fun.
That could be done, but I would want to see the majority of members agree to that.What would be better is all deer must be from NJ..
