    DO NOT POST COMMENTS ON THIS THREAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ALL PHOTOS MUST BE ENTERED BY MIDNIGHT ON JANUARY 3rd, 2021! NO EXCEPTIONS! All participants must post a photo of themselves with their deer, weapon, and visible kill tag, on the “2020 Successful Hunter” thread within the 2020 MS Deer Contest forum. The following information MUST accompany the photo. MS user name, team number (team name optional), and number of score able points on bucks (close ups may be requested to verify points).
    Admins reserve the right to deduct points if requirements aren't met 100%!



    Scoring*

    Every deer killed and entered according to the rules will be worth 5 pts.
    A 2 pt. premium will be awarded to participants that kill their deer with archery equipment (compound, recurve, long bow, or crossbow).
    Bucks will receive an additional 1 point for each antler point. Eligible antler points will be at least 1” in length (as defined by the MDNR).

    Please read carefully!!!
    *Each participant is allowed to enter two (2) antlered bucks or two (2) antlerless deer or, one (1) of each, but no more than 2 deer total. Participants will be able to enter two (2) deer ONLY. "First bucks" CAN be upgraded but ONLY if the limit of two (2) deer entered is not exceeded. Only one (1) buck will be counted as a buck!!!
    Antlered and antlerless are defined by the MDNR.
    **ONLY the top 7 scorers from each 8 person team will be counted.

    Example 1: I killed a doe with my bow, 5 pts for the deer + 2 pts. (archery premium) = 7pts. I also kill a 9 pt. buck with my shotgun. I receive 5 pts for the deer and 9 pts for each score able point on the buck = 14 pts. My total score would be 7 pts (antlerless) + 14 pts. (buck) = 21 pts.

    Example 2: I killed a 6 pt buck with my bow, 5 pts for the deer + 2 points for archery + (1 x 6) for antler points = 13 pts. I then kill a 10 pt buck with my firearm 5 pts for the deer + (1 x 10) for antler points = 15 points this buck becomes my buck entry @ 15 pts and the archery 6 pt is now scored as an archery antlerless entry at 7 pts. Total score 15 + 7 = 22 points.


    AGAIN THIS YEAR!!!
    Additional requirements are for data purposes and the hope is that everyone will participate.
    ScipioCreekAssassin has offered to gather and graph out the data from this years contest.

    QDMAMAN - I would like to add an additional data point around weather at time of harvest, if everyone is game. This will give us a more accurate representation of weather conditions vs just using general "zone" weather data which can vary widely from one side of the state to the other. Open to other suggestions as well.

    Something like : 1. Temperature and weather conditions at time of harvest.
    Example - 64*, overcast, light wind
    2. Was there a large temp swing or weather change from the day before.
    Example - Yes or No.

    I will do my best to separate the responses into logical categories for grouping and analysis.
