    Pretty straight forward. If you have any questions, just ask!

    All entries will be scored using the NWTF scoring system.
    NWTF Scoring Sheet

    Each hunter gets one bird to be used for their team score. Although, in multiple bird states, the hunter shall be allowed to enter their largest of their first TWO birds for the contest.

    Only bow kills will be accepted. The hunter must provide a picture of the full turkey, hunter and bow all in the same frame. No exceptions will be taken.

    If you aren't able to score your quarry for whatever reason, identify if your bird as a Hen, Bearded Hen, Jake, or Tom, and you can use this table if you're unable to score: Bearded Hens 15 points; Jakes 20 points; and Gobblers 30 points.

    Hunters must abide by their states specific turkey hunting regulations in order to enter a bird in this contest. This event is purely for fun so there is no reason whatsoever to have any legal issues.

    I would wait until you have a tag. You have until 3/15 then there will be an alternate sign up.

    yes just go to the NWTF Scoring Sheet on there home site. Its really simple bowmaster. My question is when will the sign up thread be posted or is this it? I would start a new one just because this will be filled with question. Also great idea on "BOW ONLY"

    so question with the rules on multiple birds. Are we allowed to post are first bird and then if the second one is bigger switch them out or should we just wait to post it until we know which one is bigger?
