Surprise December BGH Grand Slam Challenge Round

Just in time for Christmas, BGH will have a 6th round in the Grand Slam Challenge contest!

Vanguard has graciously offered their impressive line of products as prizes. BigGameHunt is honored to have Vanguard as the sponsor for this very special December 2010 - 6th Round of the Grand Slam Challenge. We decided to match Vanguard's generosity and BigGameHunt has added a Remington 700 XCR to the 1st place prize and a few Wyoming knives to bring the total number of prizes to 10. Good luck to everyone! And don't forget to let Vanguard know how much their contribution is appreciated! Head over to the Vanguard website to sign up for their online mailing list for product sneak peeks, giveaway drawings, expert advice and e-newsletters packed with info.

Blog post about the Contest.

New webpage with all the prizes for December.

The previous months' Grand Slam Challenge page.

Good luck to everyone!

That's very good news! Thanks

That's very good news!

Thanks to Vanguard for stepping up with the prizes and to all of you at BGH for adding in the rifle and other goodies!

It should be interesting to see some newer competition as I'm sure this month has drained quite a few stories and experiences from the normal top contributors! Thumbs up

The Mother of all Contests!

Man oh man!!!

Another month to compete and some truly nice prizes!!!

The rifle is a gem but all of that ED glass....hold the phones - we get to fill in our own Christmas wish lists!!!!

I got in these contests late and yes, we are now going to have to dig deep and come up with some truly original stories and tips!

The revised scoring system sounds like it is going to force us to upgrade our contributions a notch or two!

I would like to thank BGH and all of the original sponsors and add a new and well deserved thanks now to Vanguard...

Way to go Folks - we cannot tell you how much we appreciate what you are doing.

Jim

You see Jim, all this means

You see Jim, all this means now is that I have to hope you actually do not get any deer in Illinois, so that you don't have any more stories to tell.... lol

Just kidding.  Hope it goes well for you, if you still have time left to hunt.  O plan on getting my first deer ever with a bow, just so I can have something more to write about. Wink

I think we will see some new

I think we will see some new faces for the December contest.  I can't speak for the others, but posting enough to remain competitive is hard work and i do not think I could sustain it for another month.  i will probably pass and go back to my mod duties.  Plus, as Jim said it will be hard to come up with legitimate new stories.  I might have to trace my family tree back a ways to come up with some new stories.

We will have to see as it sounds like while first prize is a real nice one, the other place prizes might be worth the effort too.

Good luck to all that decide to compete in it.

And yes, thank you BGH for running these contest.  Think about it - we get to try and win prizes for just posting and no annoying phone calls from people trying to sell us something like some other contests taht use your info for sales marketing.

Me (to wife):  Big game hunt just announced another contest in december for a real nice rifle.

Wife (looking at me increduously): You are kidding right? You better be kidding.

Me:  No, I am serious.

Wife:  Well you are not playing!

Looks like I will be doing a lot of bathroom and closet posting in december Big smile

You know for a california guy, you're okay.  Pretty funny too.  Unfortunately, you're at your best when you're giving me crap.

I am sure there may be some

I am sure there may be some new faces - and some hard chargers that are fairly well known.

I am an old guy with quite a few stories I have not told yet - now I just have to rely on friends to get me some decent photographs from the past or I will simply take a few road trips myself and take the photos at their place!

November was hard - I hunted a lot...and I will hunt some in December - no doubt (back to the black water swamps) and may be able to generate a story or two that way also!!

Best of luck to all.

Jim

I will not compete for the

I will not compete for the rifle next month regardless of the outcome of this month's contest.  It just takes too much time to stay competitive with you and hawkeye.  hawkeye really pushed me in the beginning nad now that you are in it, you are surging with your posts, stories and tips. 

I wish everyone luck next month and look forward to reading all the stories that people will post.
