    A video will work if it includes you, the deer and your bow in one shot.

    Hey Fitz, how many alternates generally make it on to teams? I intentionally waited for the alternate list to sign up because currently I only have two weekends on my hunting calendar. I didn’t want to handicap a team by not being able to get out in the woods much but I thought I’d make a good alternate. I’m 10th on the alternate list, what are my chances?

    -D

    Not sure how many made it lastyear. I can PM rockinchair to find out. I've been assuming that a number will this year, as there were many that signed up as their 1st (and sometimes only) post. We'll know for sure in 12 days. The 8th is the cut-off for sign-ins.

    If you have any interst in being in it at all I suggest you get on the alternates list right away. Soon as all the replacements have been made if enough are still waiting Fitz can always add another team from that list. We have had that happen in the past so you never know what might happen.

    For future contests, maybe we should incorporate a minimum number of posts before they can sign up for the contest. This year we have a team member who has one post and that was for the contest. That was on 8/9 and he has not been back since. The chances of someone like that showing are ...................zilch.

    We talked about that in another thread and I plan to do so. Probably only 20 or 30 post minimum. On ther other had, I've seen a few of these one post wonders starting to engage in thier team threads.

    Well, there is nothing wrong with that. Even 10 posts recently shows intent. If someone really wants to participate, they will engage. The one that I'm referring to hasn't responded to PMs either.

    They get whatever they measure unless under 50 inches they will qualify for the fergie clause.
