new here

I'm new to the site, but let me get this straight - basically every post increases your chances for a prize?

Sounds good to me!

Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

Mike

Mike, not exactly.  Each post

Mike, not exactly.  Each post earns you points so in that sense it increases your chance to win, but ultimately it is the person with the most points at the end of the month that wins the contest. 

It isn't like you get multiple "tickets" for your posts to increase your chance of winning.  You also, will have to submit stories and tips if you want to compete for the top prize.

I would like to say thanks to

I would like to say thanks to Vanguard for continuing this contest. It has been a fun event to participate in. I have learned a lot of information on hunting and the outdoors from reading the post, comments, and stories of the other members on this website.
And I would also like to say good luck to everyone in Decembers contest.

Sorry Old timers, I didnt mean to stir the pot.

You all will laugh but I did not realize there was even a competiton involved with this until abotu 3 or 4 December.  I was actully just posting asking questions and stuff.  Sounds funny I know.  I think what clued it in was a got an email from BGH about prizes for December and I didnt read for a couple of days.  So I am setting here late on evening, thinking about being anywhere but Afghanistan and I decided to read the "Prize Mail" after all.  Man was I shocked and about 3 days behind.  I am thankful I have you old-timers here to question alot of rookei questions too.  I have done lot of hunting the past 5 years since moving to Tenn.  Most of it you wont find on VS or the Sportsman channel.  Just small time, small town local family stuff. But thats what makes me happy.  I am just glad my daughter is always around snapping pictures which, pays off now, I can write and psot about.    This is my one shot and done.  Once I go back home I January I wont be able to dedicate the time and energy to keep up with the legends of Jim Boyd, Haweye and the rest of the gang. I have some time on my hands to give it a whirl now.  No matter how it turns out weather I drop off and finish dead last it is wel worth the learning, fun and conversation. Thanks guys. And please for I just ask one favor, drink a beer or you drink of choice for me, until January.

Dear Mr. Jones, You are not

Dear Mr. Jones,

You are not stirring the pot and don't try that "AW SHUCKS" stuff with us.

We know what a competition is and we recognize a threat when we see one!

You are in the mix and doing very well!

Legends, for me, is hardly the case - Hawkeye is, for sure... I just stumbled into the contest back in October!

I am just an old man with a few tales to tell - you guys are the young hard chargers...

We salute you and are glad to see you here and most of all, are glad to see BGH prosper... this will allow the site to add more contests and prizes!

We want to beat you, of course, and you could not finish last if you did not type another sentence...

Best of luck, Brother... and God speed if and when you are out of country again. We love you and want you home safe.

Jim

If this months contest is

If this months contest is anything like the last few months members will start to back off a little on the posting and you should be able to grab 4th again.  Applause

Whats up guys???

Honeslty. I think 1st place might be out of reach.  Its going to be hard to catch and stay ahead of Mr Boyd.  But honeslty if I cant win the .300 I would sure love the spotting scope or those fancy shooting sticks.  I have 3 pair of binoculars.  That .300 sure is sweet though.  Its going to be a tough finish I have the stories and pics just hard to orgainze and post with my current patrol schedule.  But this is my one shot at glory.  Its fun just going for it.
