2011-2012 Contest Rules

THESE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE

2011/2012 Deer Contest (Whitetail, Mule Deer, Black Tail, and Coues deer are all accepted for contest entry) No elk, stag, fallow or other exotics allowed.)

However, if legal in your state to shoot, BIGFOOT or Chupracabras, taken by legal methods and pictures posted, will get you an additional 50 points


1) You must be a member of MSdeer.net and have at least 25 posts to enter, or have 25 posts by the time the contest names are drawn..

2) Entry dead line is September 15th 2011, deer entry will end February 15th, 2011

3) Entry to contest will only be accepted when you post the following in the ENTRY Thread
Screen Name
Name
State of residency
dates of season opening and closing

4) Teams will be drawn at random.

5) Number of teams will be determined by total entrants, divided by a number that makes for an even amount of members on each Team. Should there be an odd team, late registers will be added to that team at the discretion of the judges.

6) Once Teams are drawn, a thread will be established for each team, the team members of each team are responsible for coming up with a name.

7) Each participant will only be allowed to submit two (2) deer. If there are four members on a team, and one person does not kill a deer and the other three each kill two, then only six deer will be counted. Tough luck if you draw someone who does not kill.

Bucks will get a score of 5 points for being a deer, plus one (1) score point for every tine or point 1 inch or longer.

9) A doe is worth 5 points, whether you kill it with a gun, bow, spear, slingshot, stick or any other method that is legal in your state of residence or the state you kill it in. (no road kills accepted)

10) You can hunt as many states or countries you want, only two deer per participant can be entered.

11) UPGRADES: If you kill a doe and buck, you have two deer up for points. If you kill another buck, then you can upgrade the bucks score for the doe in replacement.

12) You must have a picture with you and the deer in it. If you think a point is questionable, put a tape measure next to it. All the points on the deers rack must be visible, if you need to, take multiple pics from different angles (no you do not have to have your face in each of these pictures)

12A) Preferably the Picture needs have a date and your screen name written on a piece of paper visible and readable in submitted picture. This is now an option as some times folks do not have a paper or pen with them or are in a hurry.

13) No pictures of caped, skulls, racks, or mounts are acceptable.....only pics of the deer with the head and rack still attached.

14) If the state you kill the deer in requires tags, tag must be attached to the deer when the picture is taken and a pic of the tag submitted.

15) No roadkills are accepted. Deer must be taken with an approved weapon during the respective section of the season for that weapon. Also all game laws must be followed in State in which animal was harvested.

16) This contest is all about bragging rights. However, the winners not only get bragging rights, they get a free one year subscription to http://www.msdeer.net

17) Everyone here has always been respectable and honest, so the honor system will apply. If you cheat, you only cheat yourself. If caught, you lose the respect of a lot of good folks.

18) First and foremost........... DO NOT ENTER unless you plan on actually hunting and participating with your Team........... If you join up and you are put on a team, and you do not show up or participate, your team members can request you be taken off their team and eliminated from the contest.

Too many "I wanna be on a team" sign up each year never to be seen again. We still have the list and threads from last year, if you signed up last year and then just disappeared, do not think you will be allowed to enter this year.

19) GTK, SMAKO, and myself are the judges for the contest. Any disputes or conflicts will be taken under advisement, then the judges will make a final ruling.


20) HAVE FUN AND LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!!!!!!!!

I dont think folks should have to put there real name. Some people are touchy about putting too much info on an open forum, and rightly so. Having them put there real name is meaningless for the competition anyhow. How we gonna know if they lied?
Everything else looks good. Well, except maybe having smacko as a judge. :W: :smash:

I suggest a rule change for this years contest. To help with the no-shows on each team, if there are 5 members per team, each team is allowed 8 deer and use the best 8 out of what's killed per team. Not limit each member to 2 deer. this will help to carry the members that don't show or have luck....

I dont like that idea. Everyone doesnt have access to good properties and some would be doing good just to get a doe. If the "best" is all that matters then theres no point in most of us participating at all. I do see your point from a competitive point of view but for our purpose keep it like its been.

the quality and quantity of deer kills has little bearing on our competition. The participation however does. Even if its just posting that you aint seen squat, thats good enough for me. The folks that sign up and disappear to other forums and forget they are even on a team are the only issue here. Last year there was at least one of those on my team and I let it slide. I wont let it slide this year however. Participation, at least an occasional post on a "check in thread", will be required. I hold no position of authority withen this competition so the only punishment from my requirement may be bashing the culplit with negative posts about their lack of participation. But thats something I can take much pleasure in. :D
