2015 Hunt-WA Horn Competition
« on: August 23, 2015, 07:56:54 PM »
Just in time for the start of the 2015 horned critters season:

Rules:
1. Deer, Moose, Sheep, Goat, & Elk legally harvested during any open season in Washington from Sept 1 to Dec 31, 2015 may be entered
2. Washington Hunting License & Tags: A current WDFW hunting license and appropriate tag is required
3. Membership: Hunters entering the contest must be forum members prior to the start of the season in which the animal was harvested.
4. Entries: The hunter must submit a story of the hunt, picture of the animal, general location where taken, and claimed score on hunting-washington.com. If either a Blacktail Deer or Roosevelt Elk are being entered, the location must be specific enough to distinguish the species/sub species.
5. Scoring System: The official B & C or P & Y scoring system will be used.
6. Winner Determination: The score that compares highest in percentage to the state record for that species, horn type (typical or non-typical), and weapon wins. For example, a modern firearm typical mule deer will be compared to the state record modern firearm typical mule deer and an archery net non-typical whitetail will be compared to the record archery net non-typical whitetail. There will be three different weapon categories; modern firearm, muzzleloader, and archery. Washington Big Game Records will be used as the state records.
7. Prizes: A perpetual (traveling) trophy will be awarded to the winner to keep for 11-1/2 months.
8. Judges Discretion: Judges may challenge any entry which could require the top entries to get an official score.
9. The entry deadline for the 2015 contest will be March 31, 2016.

I think my blacktail might score around 10 so I think I'll sit this one out.
Now then, get your equipment—your quiver and bow—and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.  Gen. 27:3

This is looking like the year of the ram.

That is a great picture scudmaster, even though it cannot be an official entry we will leave it there. :tup:

We have eaten a lot of the meat, have a few packages of steaks left.  Its very good.   Can't bring myself to eat the last few steaks since it is very likely I will never have bighorn meat again.

Just a couple weeks left to get your entries in. Bone has had the trophy long enough, time to pass it on to the next winner. :tup:

In the most competitive contest in the history of Hunt-WA, Bullseye wins by a hair. I wish we had (4) traveling trophies because each entry is deserving.

Bullseye Rifle Cali Sheep   183-2/8" divided by record of 190-6/8"=96.07%
bowtech  Rifle Goat  51-4/8" divided by record of 54-2/8"=94.93%
Shanevg Archery Western Blacktail  136-3/8" divided by record of 145-5/8"=93.65%
lokidog  Muzzy Cali Sheep   160-5/8" divided by record of 179-7/8"=89.30%

I'll have the trophy updated and delivered to Bullseye in the next couple weeks.

Congratulations to all of you on your great animals. :tup:
