What is big enough to enter?

how big should our birds be to enter them in the contest? are we gonna enter all 5 point birds, or try to enter anything 6 pts and better?

I can always count on Grant to supply plenty of salt for a wound. I do believe Grant missed a nice tom in that exact spot 2 years ago.

brock, i'm with ross, well take the 5 pointers anyday. i would hold off on the jakes unless you don't have anything bigger in the fire.
congrats on your second bird. sounds like you've got a good spot to hunt.
Just another day in paradise. Live each day.
