Cole is the only one I know of that is still hunting and unless he kills a 800 point bird his team isn't in the running. The cut off is going to be this Sunday morning at 5:00 am. I'll be up about then and if I have time I will final out the scores then, if not I'll do my best to get them Sunday afternoon. If anyone is still planning an out of state run that has a shot at the title let me know now so I can back it up for you.

Ok, it's up to y'all really. If your team has a chance then say something... if not we will call it and keep it open another week or 2 as needed. It always drags on and on and everyone leaves the forum but a handful of us for the rest of the year.

B post up when you are going to officially close the contest. There may be some 25+ plus pound, multi beard and double spurred Pacific Northwest birds to be entered grin I know there is some sand bagging taking place so might as well join in on the fun.

Sunday morning at 5 am is it unless someone that is still hunting says something now. I only know if a couple, everyone else is done and has had time to enter their birds by now. There hasnt been a bird entered in 10 days.

B there are some more birds to post that I guarantee. I'm not sure why they aren't posting them up. Everyone of the team members that has a shot at winning this thing is no longer hunting that I am aware of.

The man does have a valid point. Might as well just call it now I guess. wink

Some might not be posting till last minute just in case someone else magically finds a bird just a little bigger the next day. Just a guess.

So if everyone thinks there's so much "cheating" going on in this for" braggin rights" contest, why would one even participate?

You're the first one I've heard that mentioned cheating other than Arkik and he don't count

Y'all do realize that the prize money for the winners hasn't went up right?

Be nice to see how it all shakes out. Will there be a new champ or will team 1 retain the title?! We'll know by this time tomorrow!

Dylan I'm not nor will I ever accuse anyone of cheating unless I have proof. I will say it amazes me at the amount of 20+ pound birds with 1.25" spurs that are consistently posted in this contest year in and year out. Some folks must have a serious QTM properties that pump out boar toms like a pop corn machine. I consider myself an average turkey hunter that has access to better than average property in many states. I usually kill a few of those type birds each year but they are few and far between. My observation may be way off base but that's what I see. None the less, it's been an amazing season for many, including myself. I'm thankful for the opportunity to part of this contest with awesome teammates no matter how it ends.

Me or Buckbrush?

Because to me it sounded like he implied that some people may cheat to win...

Im definitely not accusing anyone of cheating. I'm saying, Id have a hard time believing that they would, at least in a contest with no significant prize.
