How many is it gonna take?

It really doesn't matter. It's suppose to be fun. It's not a contest. Just my two cents worth. That said, it'll take a team with a couple folks from the midwest(you know... Iowa, Kansas or the such) on your team. One 180....or whatever you measure deer makes up for a lot of Florida kills.[8D] I predict Len in Maryland will lay down more pounds of meat than the winning team total.:D:)

Since I'm expecting more than 50 teams this year , I'll say they'll be more than one teamgoing ten for ten with the highest score taking the teamtrophy.

dave I do not even think you are in the contest, so and I mean this with the best attentions.

Stay out;)

Here it is, I could give a flip what you or Len in Maryland does[:-] Shoot every damn deer in the county. I am here to have some fun and meet somefriends and compete. I like to compete, you do not and choose not to take part in the contest. I respect your right to do so. How many of us bug you to join? Do we make smart arse comments to you about not taking part in the contest?

Here is a word RESPECT go look it up;)TDWW would not be happy[:-]

Last time I checked you were an elder here, try acting like one;)

Last year I recall a member of my team saying that team 17 would never win with those smaller bucks.Consistancy pays off.They don't need to be B&C bucks to win,just a quality team that can put meat in the freezer and bucks on the ground.

Rob/PA Bowyer 07-20-2007 02:57 PM

RE: How many is it gonna take?
 
8 out of 10 members on one team taking deer won it two years in a row and I think that's exceptional. I voted 8 again, the odds are against anything higher but honestly I hope it happens.

I think we will be 10 for 10 this year.

RE: How many is it gonna take?
 
Average hunter "success" in posting a buck for the contest runsaround 26%, a relatively consistent figure over the years. Given a contest with 50 or fewer teams, (and ignoring Team 17 from the point of discussion), it is unlikely thata teamof 10 bowhunters picked at random from the pool of contestants would post 9 or 10 bucks.If a team did post 10 bucks, I would suspect dishonesty. A statistical discussion of this is in my thread analyzing the 2006 contest...

It is almost certain that a team will post 6 kills. I think the winning team will most likely post 7bucks.

That's all fine and dandy Fshafly2 ..You did a great rap up with that stats last year. All that being said..I wanna hunt where you hunted last year and we'll screw up the whole curve !!!

HuntingBry 07-23-2007 10:17 AM

RE: How many is it gonna take?
 
I crunched the numbers and found that if I took the coefficienct of inches and divided by the number of bucks submitted per team for the top 5 teams from the last 4 years and averaged them taking the square root and multiplying by pie and then using my flux capacitor to come up with a number I get :

8

well, I hope to find myself on the same team withyou, Antlereater and Canuck, but that is not very likely.

Good luck to you,

I voted 8 even before I read all the posts. Part of my reasoning is after viewing the DVD I rcd. from Hazcon, I was somewhat surprised a few more were not reported. A few teams from last year only recorded one or two bucks.

drhntr178 07-24-2007 08:24 PM

RE: How many is it gonna take?
 
I say 8 again.

sr77 07-25-2007 02:22 PM

RE: How many is it gonna take?
 
I went against the grain and picked two teams going 10 for 10 with score deciding. I am being optimistic. :D
