2012 Spring Contest Sign-Up

Postby Gobblerman » December 21st, 2011, 11:59 am

We're Back!! Yes, Once again, the Mother of All Turkey Hunting Contests is back for 2012! :mrgreen:
To get things rolling along, we are going to go ahead and start registering participants. First and foremost, the contest is "just for fun"! There are no prizes,...unless you consider being able to needle your buddies for a while to be a prize.

Everybody that wants to participate in the contest should sign up under this thread. The final day for signing up will be February 28th. Teams will be determined shortly thereafter. Total number of teams and team members per team will be based on the total number of participants we end up with.

There has been some discussion since last year's contest about whether to keep it the same or make some changes in the format. We want the contest to be as fair as possible for everybody. Friendly suggestions, comments, and discussion are welcome, but if we cannot come to some sort of consensus about any changes that are proposed, I will use my authority as "Contest Dictator" (unless someone else wants to take that position) and make the final decision about it. (I'm sure I will be a popular fellow if and when I have to do that!).

First thing....Just like last year, every entrant must agree to participate within the spirit of the contest by agreeing to the oath as follows:
Oath of Ethics and Participation: I understand that this contest is completely on the honor system. I agree to compete fairly and ethically in the contest. Further, I pledge to participate fully in the contest and accurately and truly report the results of my hunting this spring . By signing up for the contest, I agree to abide by the Oath.

If you can't abide by the oath, don't enter the contest! We had some people in the 2011 contest that disappeared on us, and this has not gone unnoticed. I will review the participants we had and make note of the names that vanished. If they show up again, I will put them in my "special category". (...we all know the old "fool me once...fool me twice" saying)

Sign-up information needed: (the format for the contest will continue to be discussed for a while, but this information will be used to aid in placement of team members)
1) Your forum name
2) Your location and subspecies of turkey you will be hunting this spring
3) Your estimation of your hunting experience: beginner, some experience, very experienced (choose one)
4) Your estimation as to how many gobblers you think you will harvest this spring: 0, 1, 2-3, 4 or more (choose one)

Let's have some fun!

well,I guess I'll get in this year. I usually don't care much for contest, but this one seems harmless. It appears that everyone played fair and was good sports, although; I'm still not sure the acme system, that a certain two hunters used, is a legal hunting method!

1.) Eggshell
2.) Easterns in Ohio & Ky; Osceola
3.) Very Experienced
4.) 3-5 birds
5.) after 40 years I'm still not as smart as a bird with a nut sized brain, what special consideration does that get me?

Send me a PM with your email address and I will reply to you with mine and then I can post the pictures for you. Also if you want there are some instructions on the help and rules thread I made a while back. I may also hit you up for some information on hunting in KS as I will be hunting down near Hutchinson next spring.

Merry Christmas.
