Please only use this when entering a deer to be scored for the challenge, and please use this format when entering your kill.

Scoring will be this. All does will score as 10 points. All bucks will score as 5 points, plus the number of points x 2. (i.e. a 4 point buck would score13 points, a 6 point buck will score 17 points, etc...). I want to do it this way to discourage people from shooting small bucks to just "score" when a doe will score just as well. The bigger the buck you hold out for, the better your score will be. Take does to rack up a score.

All entries must be entered within 5 days of the kill date.

She made it about 80yds and led me to all the buck sign . Heres a few pics .

I was hunting with a friend on his land in lamar Co. I sat in a ladder stand until 10:00 with White Oaks raining down and saw no deer.( he sat on a food plot and saw 10 does and a six point but didn't shoot)
I got down to check out a food plot I planned on hunting that evening, I knew about where it was but had never seen it. We were supposed to head for the truck at 11:00 so I had an hour to play. As I usually do I pulled out my ratchet cutters and made me an impromptu walking stick/shooting stick.
I got almost back to the road where the truck was and I glanced up the hill at a delapidated old ladder stand and saw a deer under it. I saw her she saw me! I froze with my binoculars up and rested them on my shooting stick.
I knew she was small and far away but the freezer is empty and my season has been extremely poor so far.

I waited for her to relax and turn broadside and I rested the Redhawk on the fork of the stick and put the red dot of the Ultra Dot sight on her shoulder and touched one off. She looked around and moved about five feet. Clean miss.

I settled down and did the same thing except this time it dumped her in the dirt. She laid there a minute and tried to pick her head up and I shot at her head and then realized the smart thing was to walk up to her and finish her. She was just about done but I ended it faster for her.

I had dropped my stick after the put down shot, so I got my range finder from my pack, walked down the hill to the stick and ranged the dead doe. 106 yards. By far my longest kill. I knew it was pretty far but had no idea it was that far.

My friend is working on this land turning it into a primo hunting land and you can see in the picture it was bare between me and the deer with no brush in the way and also no cover for me either.
