IMHO, I think the contest will be fun, but as I have been in another contest a few years ago, there are concerns I have. 1).Who is to know if the buck someone posts is their 1st buck and not another bigger buck than the one they shot first? 2). Who is to score the antlers? I have never scored any antlers and I have never seen it done so I don't know how. 3). Can we have more than 1 contest running? One for archery buck, one for archery doe, one for rifle buck, one for rifle doe, one for muzzleloader buck and one for muzzleloader doe, one for pronghorn buck, one for pronghorn doe, one for bull elk and one for cow elk. We could do this by all hunters posting their animals(1 per person per category), bulls and bucks get scored by rack size, does get scored by body size, and/or weight. This could get more people involved as with the draw system some states have, you do not always get the tags for a buck.
Also, you can only register an animal if it is within the parameters of your hunting season, say rifle season has ended and you get an archery buck, then you can register it in the archery category unless you have already registered one. So everyone that wants to enter needs to post the dates of their seasons so that everything is aboveboard. Also there should be no special treatment of the moderators or pro staff of the website, unless they have their own competition between themselves. Everything has to be fair, I saw too many "exceptions" to the rules given to the pro staff and moderators, and heard too many "regular" people complaining about being treated unfairly since they were not pro staff or moderators. There were too many hurt feelings too with the regular people doing their best following the rules and the moderators and pro staff cheating. I don't think that that will happen, but these contests are on the "Honor System" and Honor is a personal thing, some may try to cheat, as to them winning is everything, but most of the people will compete fairly. These are just my concerns and since I have sen it before, thought I would voice my concerns now before anything starts.
