    Jesse,
    How about a best IR pic section. I&#39;ll also donate 5 vinyl graphics of state of choice with whitetail head from Jotto Graphics.
    Good shooting and good shooting.

    Whacked about 8 or 10 more pics from the contest for being too big. If your pic is gone it probably was over the 640 pixel width limit.

    Please resize your pic and re-enter it into the contest. Info on how to resize your pics is here

    We also have some people who missed the part about this being a game camera photo contest. Please DO NOT post pics here in the contest if they are not from a game camera.

    Hey Jesse,
    I have a question regarding the " Best sequence " category.
    I have some pics of the gradual antler growth of a buck from
    early July to late August. Can I post 3 of those, or does it have to be
    a sequence of pics from the same cam within a few minutes of each other ?

    Donations, donation.
    C&#39;mon guys.
    I think everyone who has benifited from the site in merchandising, and, or simply with the information here should scrape up something for a prize donation.
    Maybe a pelican, or seahorse case. An Owl, flash, anything.
    We could award up to 3rd place in each category if the prizes were there.

    Hi Jesse,
    Maybe other members have asked this already ?
    Any thought to holding off on closing the "before and after" category &#39;til late November. I know our Whitetail season closes here on Nov 30th and probably other areas do too. I also see there are very few entrants. I have been waiting for chance at a certain buck and our season opens here on Nov 1st.


    Thanks

    We can move the end date for all catagories if everyone wants. I really don&#39;t want to move just one catagory to a later date.

    Nov 30th 2003 deadline for all pics to be in then???

    Sounds good.
    More time for more prizes to be donated. Ha.
    Only problem is the advantage goes to those who haven&#39;t posted yet.
    They have more time to wait out a great pic.

    Any chance of altering the 4 day rule, to say Nov 15th
    Members can change their posted pic for a better one &#39;til the 15th ?
    Then all posts are locked in ?

    Does it officially say that somewhere? I see that Jesse posed the question last week, but there&#39;s no definitive statement anywhere.

    Get you pics in for the contest, it ends 11/30.

    Also please doublecheck your entries. Some pics were deleted because they were too big. Some members have entered 2 pics in one category when only one is allowed. Don&#39;t make us have to choose which one to keep. Once the contest is over we can&#39;t change the pics or voting.

    For voting we&#39;ll post each category and the entry name in a poll thread. You&#39;ll get one vote per category. Please don&#39;t try and pad the voting by registering under other names or recruiting friends to help add to your count, it will be real easy to see who is doing this and you will be disqualified.

    Let&#39;s remember this is all for fun and don&#39;t take it so serious.

    Once we have the winners we will post the names. To make it fair and impartial for the prizes we will take whatever category is at the top of the contest list when the contest closes and allow that winner 1st choice of the prizes. 2nd choice of the prizes will then go to the 2nd category on the list. So on and so on until all the winners have a prize. If you want to swap prizes if you end up with something you can&#39;t use we can arrange the swap.

    We can have an calf/fawn youngin category next year Wapiti, good idea.

    We&#39;ll also have the contest end in Feb. so everyone has a chance to get the antler pics in before they fall off.

    What does everyone think about 2 pic contests a year? One for spring turkey and summer pics and the Feb end date one for fall and winter pics.
