    Size Matters - Team 3!

    Congrats to:
    _andrewgiles_sio, Berwickbuckmaster, Bootlegger, Chago, dawg007, IN DA WOODS,ILL BUCK, rbhunting1, Rick James, Turro, WakeCow, Western MA Hunter Capt.

    Sorry for the delay in getting the final scores tallied. I've been on video assignment all last week and this has been my first chance to get to them.

    First Place: Team 3 - 1701 3/8 pts
    Second Place: Team 4 - 1557 1/8 pts
    Third Place: Team 15 - 1245 1/2 pts

    What a huge year for points! Both Team for finished second with what would have been the highest score ever in the contest had it not been for Team 3's score. The highest score previously was 1314 3/8 back in 2013. Even our 3rd place team, Team 15, put up a score that would have won about 50% of the previous contests.

    1st - 3 - 1701 3/8
    2nd - 4 - 1557 1/8
    3rd - 15 - 1245 1/2
    4th - 20 - 1054 5/8
    5th - 22 - 987 5/8
    6th - 23 - 978
    7th - 27 - 950 5/8
    8th - 9 - 817 3/4
    9th - 18 - 718
    10th - 1 - 712 1/8
    11th - 17 - 647 5/8
    12th - 26 - 620 7/8
    13th - 25 - 605 1/4
    14th - 11 - 602 3/8
    15th - 24 - 584 5/8
    16th - 19 - 552 5/8
    17th - 5 - 528 5/8
    18th - 14 - 505 1/4
    19th - 7 - 496 1/2
    20th - 16 - 474 3/4
    21st - 12 - 474 1/2
    22nd - 8 - 345 1/8
    23rd - 2 - 331
    24th - 21 - 300
    25th - 10 - 293 1/4
    26th - 6 - 255 5/8
    27th - 13 - 100

    So, with the returning champions repeating this year, will they become the first team in contest history to 3-peat? If they can keep put the deer down like they have the last two years, I think theres a good chance.

    Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest this year and to all the Captains for helping me keep things running.

    Everybody had some killer scores, it was awesome to see some of the bucks harvested. The amount of fellowship and people building that I witnessed this first year, blew me away. Good luck next year, my next year started a month ago!

    Team 3 Rocks! I am glad to be a part of the team and glad to have all the fellow hunting friends here on BH.com! I have been a part of this forum, Camp outs, and the old 3-D shoots for a long time. This site by far has the best there is! Glad I have met many of you on here.

    Team 3 lets get the 3 Peat in the book! Congrats to all!

    Great Season everyone and it came down to the wire again! Thanks to Fitz again for all of the hard work and time he puts into this. Always a pleasure!
    Some fantastic bucks were killed this season, but regardless of what your buck scored (if you were fortunate enough to kill one), this contest is the best. More teams each year with fantastic sportsmanship and a great group of united sportsmen / women coming together to have fun.
    Meeting new people around the country and sharing in their success and / or struggles and helping each other is what it's all about.
    Proud to be part of Team 3! Now let's go for the trifecta!!!!!

    Congrats again to all and thank you!

    Congrats team 3! If I told you I wasn't extremely cocky at the beginning of the year looking at the line up I was on, I would have been lying. My signature at one point was confident to say the very least. :lol: there's always next year. Nice job guys
