    Pretty straight forward. If you have any questions, just ask!

    This is an ARCHERY ONLY contest, no guns allowed!


    All entries will be scored using the NWTF scoring system.
    NWTF Scoring Sheet

    Each hunter gets one bird to be used for their team score. Although, in multiple bird states, the hunter shall be allowed to enter their largest of their first TWO birds for the contest.

    Only bow kills will be accepted. The hunter must provide a picture of the full turkey, hunter and bow all in the same frame. No exceptions will be taken.

    If you aren't able to score your quarry for whatever reason, identify if your bird as a Hen, Bearded Hen, Jake, or Tom, and you can use this table if you're unable to score: Bearded Hens 15 points; Jakes 20 points; and Gobblers 30 points.

    Hunters must abide by their states specific turkey hunting regulations in order to enter a bird in this contest. This event is purely for fun so there is no reason whatsoever to have any legal issues.

    If you can tag more than one bird or hunt multiple states you can opt to entered biggest bird. you can post any bird in score card but if your holding wait to post score. you can post any bird you kill in score card but only the one you score will count toward contest.

    Contest runs through first week end in June!

    If we enter a bird and hunt a multiple bird state and drop a larger one, will the score update or should I wait and see what happens and enter largest?
