OK ladies and gentlemen here's the scoop on the sign ups and rules for the contest.
Please use the sign up thread at the top of the page. Sign ups will end on April 8th. The teams posted shortly thereafter. Once the teams are posted you will have until April 16th to check in. Sorry the dates are so close together but we are running out of time to mess around too much. Anyone who doesn't check in will be replaced by an alternate ( late sign in).
As for the rules, we want to keep this as simple as possible so here goes:
1. Only Ohio birds taken in the spring 2012 season are eligible.
2. Only one bird per contestant. If you harvest two you can upgrade to the biggest one.
3. Any legal weapon in the Ohio regs may be used, No extra points for different weapons.
4. Scoring: Beard length to the nearest 1/4 inch, measured from where it attaches to the neck skin to the end of the longest hair. Multiple beards count.
Spurs length to nearest quarter inch. Spurs measured from where it attaches on leg to tip. Multiple spurs count.
5. Pictures: 1) You and the bird 2) beard showing measurement
6. Each spur showing measurement.
7. Entries must be received by 5/27/2012.
8. Tiebreakers: If there is a tie, largest extra bird from each team. If neither team has an extra bird, Each team will select their best harvest photo and a membership vote decides the winning team.
9. If their is a question about any entry, it must be brought to either the commissioners attention or mine within seven days of when it is first posted. Please contact us by private message.

I'm trying to get this thing off the ground for 2012 as well as try to pull together some prizes. I took the rules posted last year by Bwana and put them here for a starting point.

I like these rules, nice and simple. I wouldn't add anything else to them.

We can probably work something out. I get an amendment to the rules/scoring before the teams are drawn.

How are the teams picked? Is it all random or is geographic region factored in?
Yes this is a random draw. I basically list everyone on an excel sheet and use a web-based random number generator.

I'm hoping we can get 10 4 man teams. Spread the word. Lets have some fun!

2012 Turkey contest bonus points

In a continued effort to encourge member to involve youth hunters in our sport we are adding a youth bonus to this year's contest. Color phase turkeys will also get a bonus point.

  • Youth Bonus will be worth 2 pts. Only one bonus per hunter. To score the bonus you must take a youth hunter (16 or under) turkey hunting during the 2012 spring season. You do not have to harvest a bird. However, you must doccument the hunt with a photograph of you and your youth hunter and provide a short write up in the youth bonus thread.
  • Color phase turkeys will receive one bonus point.
As with the other rules and scoring, if you have an issue please PM me or Steve.

Just for clarification, birds harvested by contestants only count toward team totals, correct? Meaning, if you take a kid hunting and they get a bird, you don't get to count it toward team totals, you just get the 2 point bonus.

Asking now prior to any confusion.
