The 2014 deer season is almost upon us, and we are having our first annual deer hunting contest, The HuntingNY 2014 Whitetail Challenge! You can sign up for the contest by replying to this thread, sign up starts now and will end at Midnight on September 28, 2014. In the contest section, each hunter will get their own thread. Entries should be posted in the 2014 Whitetail Challenge section under your thread. Contest entries must be submitted by Midnight on January 2, 2015 (Sorry, Suffolk special gun season not included).

Contest Rules

-The Deer must be taken in NY during the 2014 deer season (Oct 1 - Dec 31)
-Deer must be tagged with regular NYS carcass tags (Buck, DMP or Either Sex). Deer tagged with nuissance permits or DMAPs will not count.
-There must be photos of the deer included in the post(s), they must clearly show the antler points of bucks, this year's tag attached to the deer as well as a contest card (details below)
-Entries will be submitted by each hunter
-Each hunter can enter up to 2 bucks and 2 does

Scoring system

-Each deer will earn 10 points
-Bucks will earn 1 point per scorable antler point
-Scorable antler points are 1 inch in length measured from the base of the point. Fliers, kickers, droptines, etc ARE scorable
-Total score of each hunter will be added up at the end of the contest, highest total score wins
-In the event of a tie, greatest measured inside spread of the entered buck will be the tie breaker

Contest Card

With a black marker, make your contest card on a sheet of paper. Write large enough so it can be seen in one of the entry photos. It should include the following


At the top, write - 2014 HuntingNY Whitetail Challenge

below that include your screen name, and the date and location of the harvest (WMU)


The card must be clearly visible in at least 1 photo of deer or that entry will NOT count.

Youth Division

There is a seperate youth division for hunters under age 18. Exact same rules and scoring as above.


We will be announcing this years prizes in a seperate thread shortly.

Count me in,


Bowhunting is a demanding of great skills and patience. The skills required in bowhunting exceed those of the other hunting sports. To be a bowhunter is to be a true sportsman.
