    WHY?
    Some of the biggest deer posted on here last season were from south of the lake
  • BatemasterBatemaster Posts: 1,699 Captain
    There's definitely some good ones down here. I'm on some private land this season so let's see what happens between that and public land.

    So the deer has to be hard horned to score?
  • huntmstrhuntmstr Posts: 6,284 Admiral
    So the deer has to be hard horned to score?

    The deer has to have horns to score. If you kill a velvet deer and he's vastly larger than any other deer scored, so much so that there's no discrepancy in calling him the winner, then by all means you will win. However, if he's only an inch or so larger, I will make a determination at that time as to how to approach the scoring of that velvet deer so it's fair to all. I can tell you now that I will probably take a poll of the hunters entered into the contest as to whom they think should be awarded the prize.

    Maybe I missed it but how do folks post their bucks for the contest? Do they email the information to Chuck? I thought I would see a sticky for submissions. Not that I will likely get a buck with any chance of winning :willynilly
  • flydownflydown Posts: 6,450 Admiral
    Just post it right here, Rob. But don't forget your chit!
