I know the contest probably means different things to different people........but....at the end of the day....it IS about putting a buck on the ground and scoring points for your team.

There are some choices, below.....just to feel the pulse of the forum. No wrong answer.

There were 2 anwers that fit me....1&6.

I am looking forward to my first season in the contest to have fun with the teamates and such. Also, I will be serious about scoring a good buck, but I do hunt with other weapons at times.

I think what the contest is REALLY about is comeraderie, and friendships. Not just with your own team, but between teams as well. That's the part I look forward to the most, getting to know some other people I may not know now, and sitting down, relaxing and having a good time shooting the breeze with the team, and other teams.

Yes, the OBJECTIVE is to get a buck on the ground and score points, but I personally don't feel that's really what this contest is about.

I guess I'm the first one to click, "it's all about putting a buck on the ground"...actually I might answered that incorrectly because that's going to be my goal regardless of the contest so for the contest, number 1 might be fitting however, I'm in it for the tag!

For me it about meeting and learning from other people. I just need something to do while at work(on break of course)and I am thinking about hunting. I don't have any friends that hunt and my family doesn't bow hunt a lot any more. It's just nice hear and see some of the stories and share some of my own.

I'm all about putting deer on the ground. I'd rather kill my buck with archery only tackle but I use whatever it takes.
