Ok we have debated it with good thoughts but it is a whitetail contest.


Here it seems possible for the only tweak. besides that big buck contest will run and can enter unlimited bucks in that.

So it's this small tweak or keep the same, we will run the Poll for 1 week and then set the rules

To award special buck 1 additional point for each inch over a 15" inside spread and 1 additional point for each tine over 7"

Keep the rules as suggested, let's not complicate it.

To some this may seem like a trophy size buck contest and it may be out of reach for them. :( They might not enter because of it figuring they got no chance. I know to many it's nothing to pick out a deer of this size. But to others is a grand slam. :) I would hate to see the new hunters have to push for a #/size to feel like they need it for the contest. A Buck is a Buck and the # of points, 7", bigger or smaller all should be added the same. :) The Big Buck deal is already having some shoot for the stars. But that's all fine and dandy for those of us that have been hunting for years and are settled down and looking for a Big Mature Buck. But even my small Buck last year fit the bill for me, Not saying i'm not looking for that BIG one. But if i was a newbie on the site, i might not have posted it not knowing everyone on here first.

OK, i'm done with my morning babble. :D Gotta go shop for some food since the fridge is Empty :oops: and we're firing up my daughters drag car today. :D :D :D :D :D 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) Can't wait to hit the track. :)

I agree with 55 that it should be just bucks with no size to tines or spreads. For all the guys that do not have an opportunity of some of the places we hunt and not have a chance to pass on bucks it would not be fair to them and the new guys just getting in to hunting.

I don't think it's that big of a deal to add a little something to win it. It's going to be very easy to tie this thing, IMO. Could be the deal breaker here. Every other contest is about size... I don't remember, are we allowing deer from wherever or only the deer from our core tri-state area? If we keep it to this area, I'm all for adding some sugar to the pot. I mean, we're pretty much guaranteed to not win this thing, I'm just in it to have a little fun and ball bust!

Tomc I know its not my place to say much on the contest rules but this site is comprised of a Core of men from the tri -state area NJ Pa De with that being said in regards to the big buck contest 6 divisions why? If it is kept local it gives the average guy a shot of entering into it,otherwise he won't stand a chance if I shoot a 175 gr from Kansas .Just saying It's not a national competition contest is it? Keep it local and everyone can be a part of it to enjoy and have a shot at being the local big buck area champ.

Ol TImer, I welcome your opinion and value it.
That was my very reason in doing 6 division, it was to have a winner in each division so each area would be competing against bucks from their same region.

I agree with 55 as well. Keep it simple. If a tie, go to the overall score of the buck.
