Would be fun, not sure there are enough serious turkey hunters on here to form 5-10 teams though. TNDEER is awesome but very geographic specific where OG for example is more national.

Why teams? REN is right, it's not quite like OG. But what about a contest thread where you can post pics of your birds and have categories for weight, beard, spurs, and total score...

I'm thinking single person instead of teams. Must post picture with this year date involved. Score the turkey by nwtf scoring and then have a random drawing with those scores to decide winner. Also highest score winner but would need pics with tape measure on spurs and beard, and on scales to verify if you want to be considered for highest score. If we just had some prizes to make it more interesting. You would have to post the picture the week of the kill to be entered and have until the week after season to be entered up.

The issue with prizes is people being truly honest in their pics. Once money or something is added to win that 1.22 spurs go to 1.33 and so on. People WILL start bickering over the quality of proof and pictures.

That's why i say do a score and random drawing of them to decide the winner. The biggest bird contest could be by weight only or just do away with that contest so it will all be random drawing.

Surely not \:\) !

Just the word "contest" brings that out. BTW, middle TN hunters would have an advantage, as that strain of bird runs heavier than Ea Tn birds.

If you did it just for fun people are typically more honest and you have to have VERY VERY clear rules on picture and proof requirements.

I agree not saying anyone is a liar on here but prizes bring out the true competitive side and it could get nasty lol just do bragging rights or something. I think it would be fun to do.

I'd day do it for fun with no prizes or maybe a small prize like a turkey call. That's the way we are doing the shed hunting contest.

It'd be fun to participate in a no-prize contest, but I'm sorta with you. Had an experience years ago that reinforced the fact that when prizes are involved all of sudden folks lose their dang minds, change the rules in mid-flight, cheat, etc. Win at all costs just ain't my idea of fun.

I would be interested in doing it either way. Prizes or no prizes doesn't matter. If you want prizes offer some cheap prizes like hats or t shirts or just honorable mention on sight to me its all about the fun of competing with friends

Anyone close to Giles County has an opportunity to be in a turkey contest. A new hunting organization has plans for five team hunting/fishing events this year. The first is turkey on april13 (I think). As soon as the website is up ill make more detailed post. All birds must be brought to Pulaski for official measurements. They will have a band, a bounce house, and catering for the hunters and their families.
PM me if you want more specific details.
