        *  Number of bucks with antlers each person will harvest

No, the police officer told me not to put it on my harvest record, but most of it is sitting in my freezer, and I've got the antlers ready to mount. I should have pics Monday.

P.S. Sorry it's been so long since my last post.
We canceled our internet, and I haven't been able to get to the library for quite a while.

Well, I might as well make my team suck hind t*t! ;D  Opening morning of gun season I shot the one and only deer I saw, a little 4 pt. :-\  The next morning, I had a doe come down, but I couldn't get a shot at her lungs, and was afraid to take a neck shot with the .223, so I didn't shoot.  I won't be able to go any more for the year, so I'm done, not that it would make much difference anyway with the way the population is this year down there.  I'll post a picture of the poor little feller I got tonight when I get home. :'(

I know it sucks, but this is a "hunting" contest, not a "road kill" contest. ;D  If that were the case, if JA were in it, he could "shop" around for whatever he wanted and then hit the gas! ;D

Big58Cal..... hey man, I found out this past Sunday that somebody shot the 6 pt I had been seeing  :'( and I had missed on a running doe opening morning  :-\ all I saw was tree bark flying....but the good news is I still have 3 weekends ahead for deer huntin' so hopefully I can pull our team out of the red... I'm always good for 1 or 2 deer a year...but if I get skunked this year, this is the last time I enter any deer contest.... :knuppel2

So what have you gotten so far this year?  Sorry for tanking our team! :'(  When I called my shots before the season, I didn't know that the hunting would suck so bad, or that I was going to have shoulder surgery.  Hopefully you can get us back up to ZERO! ;D

Well my season is over, please add my third doe. I took a doe Sat. Dec 22 but my mom's camera for some reason wont put it on the computer. But as soon as she fixes it I WILL have pics. 

But that also means that it is time to subtract my 2 bucks, if that is how this works.   :'(  :'(

Now it is all up to my partner to pull us out of the negatives, I will have my fingers crossed for ya buddy.

Another thing, Kayla shot at a deer that same eveing while hunting with her grandpa.  We think she missed it clean, but with no blood trail and those thick as hell reedy swamp bottoms we found nothing.  Just in case the buzzards show up, and dad goes in to at least see if it was a buck or doe......... if it happens to be a 4 or 6 point we can still add it right???????

The doe dressed out at 118lbs, one buck was 142lbs, and the other was 136lbs! I dont keep the racks on my deer, I give em all to some peps that make things out of antlers! I just want the meat! And maybe a pic or two! O0

Two bucks and one doe! Your only allowed two bucks here for all seasons!

And that is why you have buck in your state. Come on down to FL where there is no season limit and a 2 a day limit on bucks! Spend a season here and take 350 of them if you can! I bet you would only get one or two above 6 points. I WISH there were a 2 buck season limit.

OK now..... :knuppel2  I know that you know how many points the bucks had. :knuppel2  Regardless of whether or not you kept the racks, I need the info for the deer contest.

I think you said that one was a 9 pt., correct?  What about the other one?

In Iowa I think the most a person can get is two bucks and they'd have to get a bow license and a shotgun license or something like that. We've got good restrictions on what you can kill here, but our deer size and population is excellent.

We need a tighter reg. on buck to doe harvest! Its not like that on my properties, but alot of land has all doe's and lil bucks or none! I guess Im lucky to have a varitity of bucks, Just need more doe's!!

Post by: Big58cal on January 04, 2008, 11:36:13 PM
let's set up next years contest right now. I we are going with three partners I'm in with Travo and BigCal. What are the guidelines? Or should we go with a draw for partners by gut? any how I'm in and I hope one of my boys are big,or travo

It's a little early, but we'll all keep it in the back of our heads. O0  Thanks for the vote of confidence though.  I wanted to do 3 person teams this year, but didn't have enough people sign up for it.  Hopefully this next year we'll have more people interested in it.

The way this contest is, it's really unusual.  You have to have a pretty good idea of what's in the woods and a pretty good idea how you'll do.  This one isn't based on dumb luck of of shooting a huge buck that just happens by.  You have to have some info before hand to make educated guesses


Now, with that being said, you're probably wondering why I sucked so bad at it this year! ;D  This year was a bad year for me.  My step-dad passed away during the summer and threw everything out of whack.  When I normally would have been scouting, I was mowing or doing stuff for my mother.  If I had had time to scout, I would have seen how bad we were getting hit by the Blue Tongue disease.  Then of course the shoulder surgery didn't help matters any either. :roll:  When I called my shots, I was going on what the previous year was like.  This year was a complete 180 once I got in the woods. :'(

This coming contest, if we have enough people we can let people choose the people on their teams. O0

I think all the seasons are over now, unless my partner is still hunting in south GA where it is in until the 15th.  So lets tally up the points and see who ends up with the least minus points! ;D

Cause I don't see anyone ending up on the plus side unless my partner pulls out a hail mary!!

Like I said before please add my third doe I got on 12-22-07 and then subtract my two bucks I didn't get.

You guys are confusing me. ???  Just to make sure of things.....

Ned, you got another adult doe, correct?
Turkeynutz, what is the picture of (other than a deer)?  Is it another adult doe for your total?


Let's hold off on tallying things up just yet.  The bow season in KY runs until Jan 21st, and I'm sure other people's seasons are still open.  Just to make it fair (since I don't know when everyone's season closes), we'll run it to the end of January, unless someone that's in the contest objects.

Male and female deer, that were born during the spring/summer of the year and harvested in the fall are classified as fawns.  Sorry man. O0

65 lbs (unless you're in FL) is what a 6 month old deer would weigh during the hunting season.

Too bad I don't need anymore does. I just found out a town close to hear is doing a population control bowhunt from Jan19th to the second Sat in Feb.  Only thing it is for does only no bucks allowed.  SO anyone needing does just head to Elkin,NC!!

Only trouble is, with the price of gas and an out-of-state license, Fillet Mignon in the store would be cheaper. >:(

As is true with the pygmy deer...I would say the fawns this time of year look about 15 lbs...if that ;D. I caught a bass bigger these fawns this year! 8)

I guess I should of shot one of the fawns that was with it! There was two smaller than that one and the big doe! So what does that mean? My average doe on that property is 60-80lbs! And the bucks barely get to 100lbs!

Was it a button or nub buck?  If it had just the bases starting on top of it's head and no antlers, the deer was 6 months old.  I'm not trying to cheat you or anything man, I'm just trying to make sure everyone is judged the same way.

otherwise I could have claimed my button horn as an adult doe...who would be the wiser except a fawn, looks like a fawn in the size of the nose........then again maybe I shoulda broke off 2 points from my 8 pointer just for this contest...and then I woulda got my 6 pointer and an adult doe......but if I'm going that route....I coulda took pics of the adult doe roadkill I picked up on Holloween for contest purposes...but that would be cheatin, and I dont lie about killin deer..........I only lie when I call in to work to go huntin....

goclimbarock007 should REALLY be thanking you Ned. ;D ;D ;D

We'll get another one going this next fall.  We'll start it earlier too. ;D  The archery season in KY opens the first Saturday in September, so unless anyone has one that opens earlier, we'll plan on starting it Sept. 1st.

This kinda contest isn't as easy as it looks, but it can sure be interesting! ;D


How bout doing one for the upcoming turkey season? Im in!!! O0

I'll start 'ciphering' on the rules for a turkey contest. O0  With the contest budget what it is though, the prizes will probably be a used mouth call and an empty 3" shell hull. ;D
