Well-Known Member
For the new guys these will be the rules. Gross score counts towards the teams score(measurements must be provided). 5 member teams. If you’ve done the turkey contest it’s ran just like it. Get more people involved ask your friends or other members to sign up. Teams will randomly generated off of the sign up list.


1. Deer(whitetail/mulie/blacktail/coues)must be taken legally and ethically as laws apply in the state your hunting including tags.

2. Antlered deer only (whitetail, mule, blacktail, coues)including antlered doe, if it's tagged with a buck tag, it's in. One doe per person allowed for 25pts towards teams score this 25pts will only count if that person has not killed an antlered animal. If a teammate kills a doe then another member of that team has not harvested an animal the 25pts can be used towards the member with 0 pts.

3. We will be using the Pope &Young Gross/Green scoring system, no deductions. Velvet bucks scored the same. (See percentages below)

Whitetail (as norm):125/125 = score x 1
Columbia blacktail: 125/90 = score x 1.39
Sitka blacktail: 125/75 = score x 1.67
Mule deer: 125/145 = score x 0.86
Coues: 125/70= score x 1.79
