    ***NOTICE***- change to doe scoring. I had a few guys ask if I could change the doe points because of their counties not allowing antlerless tags. I felt it would be fair to at least change the rule a little so that does will still count but not give the extra advantage. ( See rule 2.)


    With a great first year the team contest is even bigger this year. 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 a sign up list.

    Rules:


    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

    4. Open to all members new and old. Please don't sign up and disappear, you'll be replaced. No more than 5 people per team, drawn randomly....alternate's when necessary starting with first come first serve

    5. Signup has begun, Deadline to join is Jan 10th, alternatives will be taken as needed to complete teams after that date. Teams will be start being posted by Sept 8th. All members will have until Jan 10th to check in with their team or they will be replaced.

    6. You must have a pictured posted on the contest page to enter a deer. The weapon must be in the picture and the entire deer must be in the picture, no skull pictures, no rack pictures...the buck, the weapon and yourself must be in the picture. This rule will be enforced with no exceptions with no apologies.

    A) Within this post, the measurements as required by the P&Y scoring sheets shall be listed. Example as follows.

    B) Total 131 2/8

    Why are weapons in the pics necessary? Seems like that was a rule that wasn't followed all the time last year.

    It was mostly to make sure laws were being followed. I won’t be strict on the weapon part but it’s always nice to see how the deer was harvested and the customized weapons. I will however be very strict on the whole deer and person in the picture. Even if you have to take a selfie

    13. You do not talk about Fight Club!

    Good rules. Feel bad for team stuck with me. I have a buck called “Chad 2.0” I’m after and a large rabid cow with fangs I’ll be hunting.

    What if you have to leave a deer overnight and coyotes eat 2/3s of it. Is the remaining 1/3 counted as the "whole" deer?
