The contest has alreay started and teams have been set. If you have any question ask okherp or Bullbuster. they can tell everything you need to know. They are two great guys to know, there are other too, they wil help you.
The contest was set up at the start of the year. Teams and captains were randomly selected from those who wished to join. As you can see its been going on a couple of years now and when the season ends and a new begins so will the contest. No prize beyond bragging rights is given out. Feel free to read about it under the contest section for this year.
Every point counts for your team. Its a year long contest so even fish can make a big dent in the points. Some folks this season added there biggest numbers with fish. Its all about getting out doors and having fun.
There is a deadline in the spring for members to sign up. Teams are drawn by random draw, and the game starts from there. Bragging rights only. Problem is that nobody brags a lot, but its still a good way to get folks to display their hunts, and fishing trips. On occasion, we learn a little more about hunting/fishing techniques that benefit all of us. ;D
I'd have to look back, but I think the season for the new hunting contest starts sometime after archery deer season. That would be Jan 15, so you guys are not far off. We are in the tail end of this contest.
How bout have all points in by last day of January. Get all totals calculated and posted by 15 feb. Open enrollment for new teams. 15-25. Draw new teams and post 28 feb. Be ready for new points to be added by march 1 ?? Just an option. And my 2cents.
