Sounds good. I’ll have some new items as well. I guess the thing to do would be to get a list of all items and designate them for the winners. Example: first place-Trail cam, second-knife, and so on. Thoughts?

Yes, thats what will happen once I know what items will be donated. The more items we have, the better the prize packages will be.

Sounds like we may have to many prizes if everyone that has spoken up gives a couple prizes. Maybe have the same rules as the last contest but also throw in highest scoring and heaviest weight as a side dish?

Scoring is tough to do with a contest like this. We would need an official scorer that each entry would be scored by. same with weight, it would have to be done on the same scale just to be fair.

We will see how many prizes there will be, There will be 4 winners at this point. If we have enough prizes, Im sure a side contest can be figured out. Maybe a vote on the best "hero shot" that comes out of all of the entries or something like that.

Ok, So I will setup another contest, same rules as this one. Ill post the thread, etc. You guys send me over pics of the prizes, and when the winners are chosen, I will pass along shipping addresses. Sound good?

So, each prize contributor will send prizes direct to the winners?

Yes, unless someone wants to be in charge of that.

On another hunting forum that ran a deer contest they split up the participants into 4 or 5 teams depending on sign ups.  Usually 10-15 people per team.  

Rules Copied and pasted from their site:

You must follow all of the game laws in the state/province that you are hunting.
- All deer must be taken 100% fair chase/no canned hunts, that's cool for some but not what this is about...
- Only Whitetail Deer count in this competition

Each entry must include a PHOTO of the deer showing; 
1) The Hunter (YOU) 
2) Fire Arm Used if possible
3) Full Deer in the field, yard, vehicle or hanging. 
4) visual of all antler points ( Legal buck must have at least 3 inches of antler and to count a point it must measure 1 inch) (Additional photos may be required) 
5) Captain will post details of harvest to include date of harvest and weapon used

Up to 3 deer deer can be entered per hunter. No upgrades.
- Antlerless= 2pt
- Bucks= 1pt + 1pt per legal antler point (8 point buck = 9 points)
- Archery harvest = 1pt bonus
-Crossbow kills will not get the archery harvest bonus
- Video Taped Kill and commentary of harvest= 2 pts

- At the end of Sept all Sept Kills must be entered, you cannot hold out..the same at the end of Oct/Nov and Dec. One or two day carry overs will be allowed case by case based on the hunters situation (at camp with no internet...)  
- Each hunter will be allowed to enter up to 3 deer.
- Each team will have a Captain and he/she will post the official entries on the official thread. 
- Each team will have their own strategy/smack talk board to post stories...
- Team Captains will vote on any questionable calls...

Tie Breaker will be total number of hunters on a team who harvested at least one deer.  Team with the most player contribution will win in a tie. 
 

It ran really well and as far as I know there were no problems.  Weight was not a factor as it is impossible to verify any scales accuracy or a hunter estimate.  

Just a suggestion, it was fun to be on a “Team” - if you were having a slow season, you still had a shot at “winning”.  There were no prizes.
