GN 2015 Turkey Contest Rules

Post by Gobbler » January 27th, 2015, 2:07 pm

March 1- June 1 2015

5 man team.
Previous years winning team can stay intact.
Sign up sheet will be posted . Need your name and last three years kill total. So we can divide up teams fairly.
10 birds can be scored per team.
2 birds per member.
Teams must use each members birds in the team score first.
You should enter your birds as soon as possible after you kill it.
Only a team member can upgrade one of his own birds.
Alternate gobblers. If a member cannot hunt or has a bad year and does not kill a gobbler or kills one gobbler.
His team mates can kill extra birds to replace any unfilled slots. Once an alternate bird is used it cannot be upgraded.

Scoring = NWTF scoring calculator
All birds must have measurement pictures to score. All birds must be photographed to enter.
If you forget or don't take a measurement picture the score will default as follows:
Gobblers:
spur default...0.5 inches
beard default... 7.0 inches
weight default... 15.0 lbs.
Jakes:
spur default... 0.25 inches
Beard default... 2.0 inches
weight default... 11.0 lbs.
So its to your advantage to measure but if you don't or forget. Substitute appropriate score.
Highest 10 bird total wins and that team gets their team name and user names cyber engraved on the coveted GOBBLER"S CUP!!

LETS HAVE FUN. I think this is set up so people will have fun with less pressure. REMEMBER HONOR SYSTEM. :thumbup:

Just so you know.

These rules have been in effect for three years and I have received allot of positive feedback.

Just an example of emails I have received from other sites and members:

Hey gobblerD you Dumb A$$,

Hows it going since I banned your obnoxious, sorry , no turkey hunting A$$?
Any way I read your contest rules and I wish I had the Balls to use them. They are border line genius.
Me and Bird wish we could ban you again you F-up.

Sincerely.

Hey GobblerD,

In the past I have made fun of your contest because I am afraid to enter it. When I have entered contests I always choke and blame it on the rules.
But your rules are so brilliant and they cover all the possible excuses I have had in the past so... KISS MY A$$ and heres a salute to your contest :thefinger: I'm still not going to sign up.

Sincerely,
Guesswho

gobblerD ,

I don't like contests cause I can't get a signal up here in Virginia. At least thats my story and I'm sticking to it.
Anyway My Jakes wouldn't score that well and my team mates would have to much humor at my expense.
Bottom line...I'm scared to sign up. If your scared say your scared.

Thanks for listening

I'd be interested in joining a team. I hunt a state or two every spring. Do all 4 subspecies count? How about the Occelatted?

Just sign up with your last three years kills on sign up thread. We are going to balance the teams based on that. Any turkey killed in the 48 states can be entered. :thumbup:
