So i was just wondering how many of you fine ladies and gents that visit the Idaho hunting forum would be interested in a friendly BFT deer hunting contest? with a small prize as determined by me which i will supply out of my own pocket. it would be teams with 2 people per team as i am not expecting a huge amount of people to participate. the short version of how it would work is like this. first off every contestant is responsible to obtain the proper idaho hunting licences and tags that are required by idaho state law to harvest deer. two people per team every deer killed by a team member is worth 5 points, buck or doe. with an extra point awarded for every point a buck has. so if a team mate has an extra doe tag he could potentially get 5 points for a doe and 5 points for a buck plus the extra points for the points on the bucks rack or a teammate could kill two does for a total of 10 points (if the teammates tags permit). the team with the most points at the end of the very last open deer hunt in idaho wins. in the event of a tie the team that is tied for points with the most deer harvested wins. other rules include each participant enters the contest by signing up on a separate thread that will be created by me with a deadline to enter. teams will be chosen completely at random. to submit a deer a contestant will have to submit a picture of themselves with the deer. this means the contestant in the picture with the deer. the picture must include the deer body so that no mounts can be entered into the contest. a date on the picture from the camera or a piece of paper with 2011 written on it bold enough to see in the picture so that no deer harvested from the previous years can be submitted. this contest would be just to have a good time and for everyone to keep in touch through the hunting season and maybe generate a little more traffic to Idahos hunting forum. there would be no reason to argue or bicker over anything as i can assure the small prize for winning will not be worth arguing over.
this contest is in know way affiliated with bigfishtackle.com.
so how many think they could have some fun with this?do you think its a good idea? let me know with responses. who knows this could turn into an annual thing. im excited about it.
