1. Deer must be taken legal and ethical as laws apply in the

A shotgun - as laws apply in the state your hunting.

A Muzzle Loader - as laws apply in the state your hunting.

3. Antlered deer, including doe's, if it's tagged with a tag it's in.
For a button buck, that the antlers Don't stick through the skin, will count as a doe.
For the states, or country that don’t use tags, there in too.
The Does will count as 50 points this year.

One Doe per team member, will count toward your team.
A possible total of 10 does per team, = 500 points.
The Doe will count as 50 points.

The Doe rules will be the same as the buck rule.

You the Doe and the Gun, with the tag (For the states that require a tag) must be in the picture.

4. Will be using the Boone & Crockett Gross scoring system,

5. No more than 10 persons per team.
If the last team is less than 10 members the remaining will be picked,
From the alternates list starting with the first alternate.

Alternates list will start after 12 midnight September 30 - 2012

Alternate's when necessary starting with first come first serve.
I will oversee it.
Team members have until October 31 - 2012 @ 12 midnight to,
Check in or you will be replaced by alternate.

6. Deadline to join is, (September 30 – 2012 - 12 Midnight),
you may join the alternate list, see rule 5.

The teams will be posted shortly after (September 30 - 2012 @ 12 Midnight)
so please be patient.

7. You must have a picture posted on the contest page within the,
Official Score Card thread to enter a deer.
The Deer must have a tag visible (if tags apply to your state),
No skull pictures, and no rack pictures - the Deer the gun and yourself,
Must be in the picture.

The picture MUST be in a Tasteful manner as to promote hunting,
(No Blood and Gore Pictures will be Allowed)

If the Deer is all bloody clean it up before the picture and
Hide the big hole from bullet.
Remember this is to promote hunting not degrade it.

8. Total number of inches of all team members’
Bucks, and does will decide the winner see rule 4.

9. You must enter the first or second gun kill antlered deer you get.
The second deer for you lucky states Will count.
But only one score counts.
Your score counts with your team total. = 10 scores per team.

10. No penned shot deer accepted,
Deer must be a free range wild animal regardless - private or public land.
No deer shot more than twenty two times will be accepted either.

11. All disagreements, controversies and conflicts will be decided on,
by a majority vote from a panel consisting of Team Captains and or,
Moderators participating within the contest.

Each team will pick your own team Captain.
You have until October 31 – 2012 @ 12 Midnight to pick your team’s captain,

Since 0 teams have all team members checked in, there Will NOT be a 50 point deduction.
I know its hard to pick a team captain, when you don't have all of your team members.


For the first team that has all 10 team members checked, in and has their team captain picked, by October 31, @ 12 Midnight, there will be a 50 point bonus.

The first deer in the picture thread, buck, or doe, their team gets a 50 point bonus.

THOSE decisions will be FINAL.

12. Any and All offensive, derogatory and or argumentative posts will be removed.
By either Admin or Moderators that are watching this particular sub-forum.
And any team member can be replaced by an alternate.

If anyone has a suggestion or something you feel I may have missed.
And should perhaps be added or removed please post it here for the time being.

Please clean up the deer and put the tongue back in the mouth.
We want tasteful pictures.

Thank You and Good Luck
