Well we all got Toms on Team 7, "Longbeard Heaven" except LA Longbeard went MIA....


I know most got more than 1 bird, I could only get 1 in Michigan...

Total we went 5 for 6 on Toms and one member went MIA...If it gets to Multiple Birds to decide winner I'll go through out thread and figure that out as I think everyone but me got multiple birds...

3rd Place is a 3 way Tie with 4 Members getting Toms..So need to know other birds from each team...

Don't think Team 3 had a Captain and results are not correct. ADS1 killed 3 mature long beards and a couple of other team members scored.

Next Time we run the contest we need to revamp the rules just a bit. We need to make sure Every Team has a Captain, or the Team Score doesn''t count. The Captains need to have every team members contacts, names, email, phone, some way to get ahold of them. When posting birds for the Contest, *All Birds* need to be posted in their teams area, otherwise they don't count for your team, this year we had birds posted in the teams area, the general discussion, different states threads, all over the site. Each Team needs to have a Score Card posted in their team area and kept up to date on members that took birds for their team, and birds for the contest need to be posted by a certain date. It makes keeping score a lot easier for the team and finding out who won the contest. If any bird is posted in another teams area, then that bird counts for that team.
If we still have this problem of guys that can't get back on, that's why we need more than one way to contact a member. It makes it easier for anyone to go through and keep score of the teams.

Sad to say Scott, but every contest I've ever been a part of turned into more aggravation than I wanted, so I quit doing them until this forum contest. I used to be in a local sporting goods contest and a Chapter of NWTF contest and both turned into something that just took fun out of doing them. I had to quit the NWTF because of the bitterness. I truly am not bragging, but after winning or placing in the top three for five straight years It was suggested my winning bird should be disqualified because I shot it twice and the second shot was after chasing it down about 100 yards. Hey sooner or later we all have a bad shot, but that was 25 years ago and I wasn't as disciplined and maybe the contest made me that way. The logic was it wasn't an ethical kill because it wasn't killed clean at the point it was called in to. So I disqualified myself and quit the NWTF and never rejoined. There is just something about making hunting competitive that changes the hunt for me. I liked this contest so far because there was virtually nothing a stake and it was totally for fun. With that said if you agree to something you should keep your word if at all possible and report. I am seriously thinking I will forgo the contest next year, I fear it's going down the same old road.
