    I was hoping these 2 contests would do well but they did not even come close to being as good as the regular contest :(

    Our state team participated quite a bit. But your right the secondary contests didn't do as well as I'd hoped overall.

    Did anyone win the gun contest?

    I didn't get into the regional contest but I did waste team space in the gun contest. I tried... really! My buck jumped or fell off the mountain or something. :(

    I had a lot more activity on the MD thread than on the main contest. I had a good time with the state contest!

    The failure of the state contest was easily predictable..........just a flawed idea. The gun contest is a tough one because it's usually a wham-bam situation for people and it's realistically over (opportunity wise) quite fast. This doesn't support long drawn out conversation on what you have seen and done over weeks/months.

    Not many gun kills at all though which is shocking.

    I didn't take a buck this year so nothing to post in a buck only contest. Our team thread was fairly active.
    I basically stopped gun hunting when I got back into bowhunting so didn't even enter the gun contest. I think it was generally understood that all the other comps would be far less of a 'thing' than the main one.

    Thanks to everyone involved and those that went to the trouble of putting them all together.
