Hunting Beast Buck Contest Winners

Unread postby huntinnurse » Sat Apr 02, 2011 1:12 am

Congratulations to everyone that entered the contest!!!!!!
every entry was an excellent entry. The voting is not completely over as we have many ties. The top 4 places are complete, but, from 5th on is a lot of ties and we will have a tiebreaker poll or more than one for the 500 club members, mods and admins to break!!!!!
Here is the list of the top 4 places, BUT, only think about the prize you want as Dan will be combining the packages and due to the Madison Deer and Turkey Show, this will not be done/completed til next week.
Also, VERY IMPORTANT, Hunting Beast is not responsible if a prize is not honored by the donor. As of this time, that has never been a problem. You just need to be aware that the prizes given are the donors responsibility. What this means, you as a prize winner, may contact the donor of the prize you are CONSIDERING to be sure of any details such as when prize may be realized (as in any of the hunts/fishing trips), addresses needed for shipping or picking up prize. Once we have all the places posted, then we will begin the picking of the prize packages starting of course with 1st place and working down. I anticipate this to take a couple weeks to complete. The tie breaker voting will be limited to just a couple days, so voting members check often to get your vote in when that time comes. Hopefully by doing it this way, it will be complete in a timely manner and those fishing trips can get planned as they are the ones with the most time constraint on them. I hope I have been clear and concise with this as this has been the biggest contest Dan has had to date--the most contestants and the most prizes.

The list as it grows:
1) Spysar
2) PredatorTC
3) Muddy
4) DOR
5) Deerslayer
6) Liberty-Hunt
7) Black Squirrel
8) Bucky
9) 3dog
10) headgear
11) Gardner Swamp
12) Solocam88


Again, Congratulations!!!!! I will post the remaining places when we have the tiebreakers completed!!!!!!

UPDATE! Here is the updated prize list, 1st place will get 1st pick, 2nd place will get to choose next. Each additional winner will choose from remaining prizes. Congrats Winners!
HERE ARE THE PRIZES YOU WILL BE CHOOSING FROM!!!!

Congrats everyone on the great seasons and stories. What a tough group of deer hunters to be in a contest with.....I'm lucky Dan and Andrae aren't in the contest. :D

A big thanks to Dan and all the great Beast sponsors!! :mrgreen:

And thank you all who voted for me. I cheated by throwing in a fish in my story. It worked for libertyhunt too. :lol:

PS- I think there is a 5th place tie between Libertyhunt and Deerslayer...I'm checking with Huntinurse.

Thanks for pointing that out Spysar. I noticed that too and PM'd huntinurse also, but I haven't heard back from her yet. She just signed off a few minutes ago so I'm sure she has received our PM's.
