Example Photos for Turkey Hunting Contest

Post by Bobbyparks » Thu Feb 16, 2012 3:09 pm

I've attached some sample shots to help understand whats required. The idea is to provide proof that a bird was killed by the hunter and on a specific day to the extent we can.

Enough of the fan must be visble to dethermine its a mature bird

This is whats required for a 5 point bird . Its possible to do this with two photos but the hunter and bird must be visible in one and the "date "piece and bird must be visible as well.

Another example with an Ipad and cell phone for a 5 Point Mature Bird
(Note the cell phone is barely visible...its not that we can't zoom in when judging but please don't count on it) Watch for glare....I actually caused Wesley not to be able to enter a bird last year because of this.
(of course he wasn't on my team...and acccidents happen)

5 Point Bird plus
2 bonus points for spurs

Total 7 Point bird

Note tape is exact.....I've seen plenty in another contest where the tape was obviously beyond the base of a spur....this will not be allowed and it does not look good on those who try to slip it in

5 Point Bird
2 bonus points for beard
2 bonus points for spurs

9 POINT BIRD!

Beards are tricky...and this one is acceptable
Both ends must be visible...I saw several last year where the tape end just dissappeared under the bird and the tape was legible,,,but who knows where the other end started.

There is no way we could accept those here....please take shots and double check...take several to be sure.
The last thing we want is to DQ someone...but you know others would object and we have to be consistent

A big thanks to Tim...BgdadyTrophyhunter for helping round up some photos

Thanks guys

We really want everyone to have fun and enjoy the contest...and not have people upset and unhappy because birds were not entered correctly and accepted.

mostly what we ask is that you put yourself in our shoes and understand that we have to be as fair as we can and we have to enforce the rules here....Once you start deviating you open a whole new can of worms.

Entries have to be clear enough that points can be awarded......it would an absolute shame to not win because of something like this......but...in the end it will come down to not only that you killed turkeys...but that you followed up and correctly submitted your paperwork....that's really what it comes down to.
