Remember, it's TWO pictures
Looking forward to the season.
Alright, I'm in. Assuming that is, that someone is willing to take a weekend warrior, public land hunting noob on their team.
haha thats okay this is my second year hunting and ill also be on public land next season trying to get my first deer.
I have hunted the last 5 years on public land. Just have to work harder then the private property hunters but you can get good deer on public ground.
Last year was my first real attempt at big game archery hunting. I got lucky and tagged a button buck (11 hrs in a ground blind over a watering hole without seeing a thing, then scored on the walk back to the car. Go figure). Better to be lucky than good I guess.
Just picked up a new property today! I'm so fired up! Can't wait to see the team Im gonna help win this year!
Clarify for me. It does not state where to post photos to and #8 makes it unclear. Is it wrong to post both to the team thread and somwhere else? Not sure if we post to one or two or which thread.
There will be and official score card thread once the contest starts. You will post your photos there.
You can post them on your teams thread, but make sure you post them in the score card thread too!
If this whole contest thing still seems a bit fuzzy to anyone, be sure to look up the 2011 contest thread in the archives.

I want to be in hearing how all I heard about from someone last year was their team. Once I figure out what a deer looks like Ill be good to go. right?
Fitz, Hypothetical situation. If your first deer is a buck and you count his inches for the contest. If you drop a 2nd buck in bow season can it qualify for your doe points?
I want to say that happened before, let me look into it Coop.
I'm pretty sure the answer is no, unless it's a BB
First year in competition!!! Looking forward to it.
Alright Mark, I couldn't track anything down. I'm going to go with no. One legally tagged buck, and one legally tagged "antlerless". It may not be fair for guys who don't get the opportunity to take does, but there are plenty of guys who can only take one deer anyways.
Fair enough, just thought I'd ask as I am seeing a lot more bucks than does of late.
Whatever, you don't intimidate me!
contest sounds awesome! I'm pumped for my first year to be participating in it. Random question unrelated to the contest rules; whats the biggest buck taken and by whom during the contest to date?
