Default 2008 Fall contest rules

Here are the Fall contest rules. No need to reply to this post. If there is any questions please PM JW and/or myself. Thanks and good luck...
Hunters whos seasons opens before we draw teams may submit their harvested bird to their respective captains and they will be scored in the contest.


Teams will be drawn Sept 28, 2008 and then you will have to choose Team captains by Oct 3 2008.
Teams will be posted and we elect the right to add a few more hunters to make all teams even. Once done the Fall Contest will be closed to new participants unless someone needs to drop out. Then and only then will we replace a hunter.
Team Captains
1. Must have a posted valid e-mail address in their Profile.
2. Must be willing to share a US Postal Mailing address if asked
3. Must be willing to update all team scores.
4. This contest does not work without their help! If any team can't agree on a Team captain by Oct 3, 2008 then we will select one for that team.

Teams May choose a team name.
Team members will post their score on their Team Thread. It is the Captains responsibility to alert the Contest Administrators and check to make sure the Posted team totals match. The Team Captain may delegate this to another member of the Team.
Scoring
You will score your bird according the NWTF Calculator

http://www.nwtf.org/all_about_turkeys/turkey_score.html


Only one bird per hunter is used for this contest to determine team standings. Multiple birds shot by any one hunter, the hunter has the right to upgrade his score as the highest score can be used to replace a previously registered harvested bird. Only birds harvested during any given states Fall Season, taken in an ethical manner, under Fair Chase, using either a Shotgun (Conventional or Black Powder) or Bow can be entered.

Team members must post a picture of their turkey to prove authenticity of the kill. A brief story along with statistics is welcomed. Do add a ruler to each spur and beard in the pictures taken. If you don't know how to post pictures, ask your Team captain, or a member of your team that knows how to post pictures to help you out.
Be sure to say when, where, and what weapon you used for the kill when you post a picture.

If you aren't able to score your quarry for whatever reason, identify if your bird is a Hen, Bearded Hen, Jake, or Tom, and you can use this table if you're unable to score:

1. Hens 10 points,
2. Bearded Hens 15 points,
3. Jakes 20 points,
4. Gobblers 30 points.

No kills that were made using illegal means, weapons other than shotgun or bow, or using methods that are against state law will be counted, only legal kills will be counted.

Bearded hens are allowed to be posted on this contest, only if your state law allows the harvest of a Female turkey. Be sure to check and see if your state defines legal harvest as being "bearded" or if they differentiate by "sex" or "gender".
