Hi everyone ....Do not forget about this years turkey contest....I will get the rules and regulations up soon in the contest thread  with a sign up thread...... but in the mean time here they are for review......

Remember We need to be signed up before March 10th....so keep that date in your mind....I want to see a lot of us signing up with lots of new faces as well....


This is a championship between turkey hunters to determine the best overall turkey hunter.

CONTEST DEADLINE - Contest will run from March 15, 2015 through May 31, 2015. No Turkey harvested before or after these dates can be entered. No turkey harvested before you have officially entered the contest can be entered. You have to enter the contest before March 10, 2015. You must harvest at least one turkey to win (cannot win on calling points alone).

ELIGIBLE ENTRIES

ELIGIBLE CONTESTANTS
To participate, you must be a Talkhunting.com forum member and have a minimum of 50 posts.

Any Gobbler taken legally in the state your hunting.

3 bird limit but only the one worth the most points will count. The other birds may serve as a tie breaker.

If you are the Shooter, entries must include all 3 of the photos below

If you are only the caller and not the Shooter, entries must include the photo below
Picture#1 - A picture of the bird and the member who is in the contest with a TalkHunting printout or a blank piece of paper with the date written on it in the picture

If you harvest a turkey with a bow or crossbow, the bow/crossbow must be in the photo with the bird to get the bonus points

There will be no exception to the above picture rules. Date and time stamps on cameras do not count as a TalkHunting Printout. Add your camera, some TalkHunting Printouts and a black marker to your turkey vest.You can also use a blank piece of paper with the date written on it instead of the TH printout

Any photo not CLEARLY showing all details required will disqualify the entry.

Entries must be posted within 15 days of the harvest. All entries must be in by June 15th.

Point System

Beards:
1/4 point for every 1/4 inch of beard on the longest beard. Additional beards on the bird are not counted. Measurement starts at the place where the white wrap around the beard meets the breast skin and goes to the longest hair. Beards must still be attached to the bird in the photo.

Spurs:
1 point for every 1/8 of spur length. Feet must still be attached to the bird in the photo. Measure only the longest of the 2 spurs. Spurs are measured with a ruler straight up from the base of the leg to the tip of the spur. Not with a soft tape following the curve of the spur.

Weight:
No points are awarded for weight

Bonus Points:

If you harvested your turkey with a bow or crossbow you will be awarded 2 bonus points (this does not count if someone you are calling for kills with a bow or crossbow)

If you call in a turkey for someone and they harvest the turkey, you will be awarded 1 bonus point

If a member does not harvest at least one turkey himself / herself by the end of the championship, no bonus points will be counted.
