Default Official Rules.

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

2. Archery equipment only which include crossbows, compounds, longbows and recurves. One bow contest only.

3. Antlered deer only (whitetail, mule, blacktail)including antlered doe, if it's tagged with a buck tag, it's in.

4. 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


5. Open to all members new and old unless your signed up in another bow contest on HNI(only), please don't sign up and disappear, you'll be replaced. No more than 10 persons per team, drawn randomly....alternate's when necessary starting with first come first serve....I'll oversee it.

6. Signup begins July 15th, Deadline to join is Sept 1st
, with alternates then being taken until Oct 1st or as needed to complete teams. (amended by majority vote, teams picked after 420 signups, in fear of not enough alts, alts being taken as needed and possible new teams formed drawn randomly)

7. You must have a pictured posted on the contest page within the Official Score Card thread to enter a deer. The bow must be in the picture and the entire deer must be in the picture, no skull pictures, no rack pictures...the buck, the bow, and yourself must be in the picture.....call me skeptical. This rule will be enforced this year, 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)
Right ----- Left
MB 18 6/8 ----- 17 4/8
G14 ----- 3
G26 4/8----- 6
G36 4/8 ----- 4 6/8
G44 4/8 ----- 1
G51 -----

H15 6/8----- 6 2/8
H24 4/8 ----- 4 4/8
H34 4/8----- 5 6/8
H43 6/8----- 3 2/8

Inside spread 15 4/8

Abnormal points
1. 4
2.
3.



8. Total number of inches of all team member's animals will decide the winner....see rule 4.

9. You must enter the first bow kill antlered deer you get.....second buck for you lucky states will not count. First buck means first taken regardless of multi state hunts.

10. No penned shot deer accepted, deer must be a free range wild animal regardless private or public land. Guided hunts acceptable as long as the animals are free range.

11. All disagreements, controversies and conflicts will be decided on by a majority vote from a panel consisting of Team Capt's and moderators participating within the contest. Those decisions will be final.

12. Contest deadline is Feb 15th.

13. Rules set forth for a smooth contest, the main rule is to have fun and enjoy your fellow teammates and all the smack talk that goes along with this contest.

Rob
I agree with Germ thathunters should post the scoringparameters of their entry in their individual team threads.

I think it would also be interesting (from a data analysis perspective) to require entrants to post the date &time that they shot at their deer, and location (State/Province).

Sounds good to me and it's required to score it so it's easy to put it on the post.

Like the G measurements (tines) the H measurements are your circumference measurements.

Has anyone been able to find the scoring sheets in a word format? The only way that I was able to find it is in PDF format.

Tried to convert it for you from the P&Y website but it didn't work out well enough to be of use.
