At our deer camp we have our little money pots. $20/hunter. $10 each into two pots. Pot one goes to the first deer down. Pot two when we wrap up camp for biggest deer body.

Course we usually just drink the winnings!

Any other fun little games in your camp?

Nope not for deer butfor elk camp,which is deemed fittingly "Wapiti Lodge". Up for grabs is the annual "Dropped Tines Award" for the top bull harvested. The winner of this prestigious title gets their name on a plaque of a hand crafted trophy, keeper ofthe trophy until the following september and limited edition gift(aka something usually bought off Ebay with elk as the motto).

For fishing we have a pot though;
$2ea.bucks for the first fish
$2ea. for the most fish
$2ea. for the largest fish

When we go on our annual hog hunt, we put in $20 for biggest hog of the weekend. Missed out last year by 10 lbs to a little scrawny kid that got lucky.

To encourage doe harvest we all put in $25 for the largest doe taken of the season. Guest can join in, as long as they pay before they hunt. Last year the winner picked up $475 for a 139 pound doe.

at my deer camp, we all bet on the hunter we think will kill the biggest buck. You can bet on yourself though. the pot gets big, and i mean big

We started a tradition in our camp about 7 yrs ago. We found an old buck skull with a set of banana horns, painted it gold and did a skull mount. Everyone sticks $10 in the eye socket and the biggest buck wins the pot plus they get to keep the "Buck of the Year" mount/trophy for the year. At the next years deer camp their name plaque gets added underneath themount.The darn thing isclose to 2 feet long now.When you hit 3 times on the list you get a star next to your name signifying your acheivement. It's not a big pot but the guys sure work their tail off for it.

I like the idea of having a seperate pot for the biggest doe. It would sure get some of the guys off of their keester and harvest the over abundance of doe in the area we hunt.
