This is great but I have a question.
I thought only deer taken in Tennessee were allowed on the
trophy room? Allowing deer from outside the state doesn't seem quite fair?

Hook we have a BUNCH of folks who live in TN and hunt in other states. And as strange as it may seem we have a TON of folks who are regulars on the site that are from other states. We simply wanted to make it a contest for everyone that uses TNDEER. Keep in mind it is a photo contest, so a small doe from TN could win just as good as a big KY LBL buck!!

Hope this helps.

Folks, here are a few contest photo tips, I will post some samples later, if you would like.
Contest photo tips.
Digi cams make it a lot easier to get a good shot. Take lots of them and experiment. Hopefully the photo will be something you want to keep as a memory as well as a contest entry. Take some with a flash, some without, again...experiement.
Get close, fill the viewfinder only with what you want in the frame...in fact, think of the viewfinder as a frame. If you have to explain what's in the photo, you didn't get close enough. Get close is rule no. 1, most photos are "made" simply by getting close.
Sun at the photog's back...shining on the subject. Careful with bills of caps, they often cast and unseen shadow. (Again, try some with flash.)
Take time to compose the photo...pick a spot, clear it of any obstuctions that might end up in your photo...in front of your subject, or even the appearance of a limb (behind subject) growing out your subject's head.
The best photos are taken onsite...it adds to the photo and the memory. True a lot of photos are taken on tailgates (more a matter of convenience than anything) but my bet is a contest winner is going to be taken"in the field".
Take some time to clean up your trophy, blood, mud, etc. This extra effort, likewise makes for a better pic.

Again, these are tips/pointers, not requirements...hope it helps.

Taylor

Thanks very much for the tips
One more that I've learned from TnDeer . Try to clean up your deer.A Bloody deer does not make the best picture.

Samples would be cool.

WTHM: Exactly. I went back and added that to tips list. I have also found, along that same line, it is typically best to take the shot as soon after the kill as possible. Not only does it make for a better trophy shot, sometimes it also seems to "capture the moment" better (especially with kids). Again, just a thought.

So you only have to enter your photo in the trophy room and you're eligible?
