Big One

The one I killed is far from being a big buck. Hell, it wasn't even a buck at all.

I would say a picture and a registration number from the local DNR. It has to be a legal buck to count. If 2 deer are in question then the highest "official" B&C score will take it. If we do body weight our brothers in the north have a unfair advantage. Their deer are bigger. I thought about the biggest doe. But again northern deer are larger. We could do smallest doe but do we really want everyone shooting all the fawns we see? In NC you can kill an unlimited number of doe.

My question is who holds the cash until someone wins?? You can say I'm in on this thread and at the end of season everyone mails the winner their part of the pot. If you fail to do so you are a looser and will be publically called one on this site.

I say we do at least $10.00 each and it starts November 1st. Our muzzleloading season comes in November 8th but I don't feel like looking up every state to see when their gun season comes in. We should only count deer killed with a gun or with a bow in gun season because if no one kills anything Treed already won it.

Everyone has until November 1st to say I'm in. No one can enter after 11/01.

What do you think??

Hunting Contest

I'm in a hunting contest on another hunting forum and it's cool. No prizes, just bragging rights. The rules are 5 points for a deer, buck or doe. One additional point for each antler point more than one inch long. So a 8 point buck totals 13 points. Also, bow kills are multiplied by one and a half, so that 8 point with a bow would be 13.5 points. (This is my first year bowhunting, and after seeing how hard it is, I think bow kills should be multiplied by a hundred.) The downside is, rack size doesn't matter, so a little 8 point yearling scores the same as a monster 5 year old 8 point.
The score is based on one deer, so if you kill a bigger deer later on, you replace your first score with the second. This levels the playing field a little for people in states like Kentucky where you can only kill one buck. We have 11 teams of 5 people each, and the team with the most points wins. My team sucks though, so far I'm the only one to enter a deer.
To enter a deer, you post a pic with you and the deer. The bow needs to be in the pic for the bow bonus. There's a lot of honor system involved (I guess you could send a picture of you with that monster 13 point your buddy killed,) but it's a pretty good bunch of old boys. I don't think anybody cheats.
But I like the idea of a B&C scoring system and a cash prize. Count me in.
Here's my first ever bow kill. My neighbor and I scored it. It scored a 2:

(by the way, I didn't see the antler points before I shot it.)

Contest

I have rethought my opinion on the big buck contest. I see I am clearly outgunned. Our brothers to the North have a clear advantage.

And our gun season has not started yet. I think we should do the smallest doe.:D

Be happy for your friend. Nice buck....looks to be about mid 130's. The buck I posted not only came off of one of my good friends spots but one of his stands....however I am the one who first got us permission to hunt the land almost 12 years ago. He has taken 4 bucks over 160" on that same property over the years. The only thing that comes close to making us as happy as when we take a big buck is when one of our buddies get one. Here is a good 8, a 9 and two 10's that I have managed there over the years...the last pic is my buddies best buck since we started hunting there.

PS the guy standing over the ten on the ground looking all sour put on the same ass face when I shot a decent nine point off of one of the 6 stands he hung that year on the property. He doesn't get invited any more because for him it's more about competition than camaraderie. I wonder how sour he is now that he let his selfishness cost him a free place to hunt giant bucks.;)

Those are some fine looking deer fellas!!! Can't wait to see the one you're talking about deerhunter08! Did it have one point growing out of it's forehead? lol Nevermind me fellas, I'm on a posting spree today. I'm not a hunter, but these pictures definitely make me want to take up a new hobby. I can barely afford my fishing habit, can't wait to see what happens when I start hunting.
