Deer Contest

Recommended Posts

I know we lost the turkey contest and participation on the deer contest has dwindled but will this be the first year without a deer contest (that I know of) since the beginning of time?

Been a member here pretty well since the forums started.  Been a contest every year as far back as I can recall Frank.

I only started running the contest to help when John (redkneck)was not able to continue running it.  Before John ran it others stepped up. 

With the decline in interest and lack of participation I wasn't sure if there would be enough members to even sign up to make it worth it this year.  While it's not necessarily too late to have a contest I am doubtful there would be enough members sign up to have but a few teams with a few members on each.

I'd participate, I'm not on as often as I used to be but I still check in a few times and week and see what's going on and typically get more active as deer season rolls in.

What kind of numbers......

16 might be a stretch but could give 4 teams of 4.   Right now there are 3 of you.  Who else would play?

william, what ever you think is enough to bother with, I'd say AT LEAST 12 members to go with it

Dunno that there will even be 12 different members reply here.  If we can get that many here to come in and say they are in for a contest I will get a sign up posted. 

Regardless everyone have a great and safe season.

Count me in.  Surely there is a dozen members who have nothing better to do than go deer hunting.  No need to feel pressured to kill something and just keeping abreast of how everyone's season is going is interesting.

I'm sure Al would sign up once he hears about it. I'm in and even if William is running it he can still be on a team so that's 5+Al. What about your Katrina William? Can she play this year? I think running 5 on a team is the way to go. That means 10 people for two teams and 15 for 3 teams.

Dunno Frank, but I cannot commit myself to being on a team.  My hunting time will likely be limited to taking my 13 year old and possibly a few sits with the muzzleloader. 

Catrina may want to sign up, hoping she will be able to take a week off during our muzzleloader season.  I will ask her.

Absolutely.  Encourage everyone to share their stories and pics.

Looks like 9 if I am counting right.  Catrina said she might participate if our 13 year old could also play but they would have to be on opposite teams.

doesn't seem like an issue to me William. I would welcome both, I'm sure others would say the same.
