    I was just kidding. Guess I didn't realize the previous posts weren't that recent. I was just trying to be funny.

    Other than my phone, I didn't have internet access before I dropped my buck off at the processor.

    Is it okay to enter the measurement once I get the head and cape back? I've never scored a deer before and I wanted to make sure I did it right. I brought up the Pope & Young scorecard, but it was hard to read on the phone screen.

    Can't wait to sign up for this contest next year. Im new to the site and will be on all summer so I'll easily have my 25. So I was wondering what a good score might be for this contest? This year I would have put up about a 180. Also are there any other qualifications for signing up for teams? Thanks

    Well the rules do not say anything about fair chase, only specifies being a legal harvest. That leads me to believe that a high fence deer could be entered. Personally I wouldn't get my underwear in a bunch about it but that's just me. Get riled up if you wish...I haven't got to lock a thread in a while. :)

    I don't understand the drama. I've never heard anyone high fence hunting and entering deer in this contest.

    Since game farms are not subject to Game Laws, legal and illegal are irrelevant, hence making high fence deer not eligible for the contest....

    Damn I'm good!!! :D

    Well like I said, doesn't matter to me. I'll let Fitz give the final word on it.
