Recommended Posts

The 2018 deer season is only a few short months away, and we are bringing back a deer hunting contest, The HuntingNY Whitetail Classic! You can sign up for the contest by replying to this thread, sign up starts now and will end at Midnight on September 28, 2018 at which time this thread will automatically lock. In the contest section, each hunter will get their own thread, in which entries should be posted. Contest entries must be submitted by Midnight on January 2, 2019 (Sorry, seasons that run into 2019 are not included in this contest).


Contest Rules

-The Deer must be taken in NY during the 2018 deer season (Oct 1 - Dec 31)
-Deer must be tagged with regular NYS carcass tags (Buck, DMP or Either Sex). Deer tagged with nuisance permits or DMAPs will not count.
-There must be photos of the deer included in the post(s), they must clearly show the hunter, the antler points of bucks, a clear picture showing the inside spread measurement (must clearly see where each end of the tape measure is touching), this year's tag attached to the deer as well as a contest card (details below)
-Each hunter can enter up to 2 bucks and 2 does


Scoring system

-Each deer will earn 10 points
-Bucks will earn 1 additional 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(s) will be the tie breaker (if hunters are tied and each entered 2 bucks, the spread on each entered buck will be measured)


Contest Card

With a black marker, make your contest card on a sheet of white 8 1/2" x 11" paper. Write large enough so it can be seen in one of the entry photos. It should include the following

 

At the top, write - 2018 HuntingNY Whitetail Classic

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 separate youth division for hunters under age 18. Exact same rules and scoring as above.


Prizes

We will be announcing this years prizes in a separate thread once we have the contest section ready.

If youth participants do not have an account on here, their parent or grandparent can enter for them.

Contact landtracdeerhunter about prize donations, he is handling that.

I'll try and save some postage and pick mine up in person....... :)

Consequently,  I'd like to be included in this 2018 HuntingNY Whitetail Classic.

I might enter if you modified the rules to allow up to (4) bucks, as long as (2) of them had antlers less than 3" and were legally tagged with DMP's or an "antlerless" ML/bow tag.   I assume these would count for just 10 points, just like a doe, and not get any extra points for antlers points over an inch long.

Most years I don't shoot a doe either. If I do it's only one, as that's all the meat I need. 

So it does kinda put the hunters who don't shoot does 20pts behind. 

I'll need to shoot a 30 pointer to win!........lol
