Default Inaugural TBH Oklahoma Big Buck Contest, East vs West! "Mod Approved"

Inaugural TBH Oklahoma Big Buck Contest
East vs. West

Alright gentlemen! For all of the green screeners that hunt north of the Red River we are going to launch the first, hopefully to be annual, East vs. West Oklahoma TBH Big Buck Contest! Entry is totally free! Just chime in with your participation/region and you will be entered!

• Must be a member of TBH who joined on or before August 1st of the contest year.

• East vs. West dividing line will be the Indian Nation Turnpike that stops in Henryetta and continues on to the state line as 75 to Kansas. See map below.

• Animal must be taken with Archery Equipment Only. Traditional/Compound/Crossbow.

• 100% fair chase only.

• Outfitter entries are not allowed.

• Private, leased, or public land entries within the state of Oklahoma are eligible.

• Rankings will be determined by the top 3 grossing entries. Nets are for fishing!

• Scoring must be performed by an official measurer from the B&C or P&Y Official List. https://www.boone-crockett.org/offic...asurer-locator
https://pope-young.org/records/find_measurer.asp

• Final measurements must be in 60 days after the last entry or April 1st. This will ensure that participants have plenty of time to accommodate the 60 day drying period for official measurement. The 60 day drying period is not a requirement for entry, but is usually a requirement for the measurer selected.

• A picture of you, the animal, carcass tag number, and official scoring sheet with scorer information must be posted to be considered for official rankings.

• The East vs. West crown will be awarded to the region in which the 1st place entry was taken.

• Contest will officially end at midnight on the 16th of January 2021.

PRIZES

• Prizes this year consist of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place metal signs that will be custom made by our very own Saltaholic! All of the signs will feature the same basic design, but have a custom made likeness of the deer you entered to win! Final design of the sign will be ongoing, but finished and posted prior to the end of the archery season on 15 January 2021.

• Along with the personalized sign a custom made skinner, made by TBH’s very own Bjankowski, with custom engraving and leather sheath will also be awarded for all three rankings. Design updates with pictures will be posted as they move along in the process!

I am super excited about this endeavor and honored to be involved in this. I thank you brother Darton for reaching out to me and enjoyed our conversations concerning this. I see it one day exploding and becoming bigger and bigger with every year that follows. For you all that don’t know Darton is financing all of this out his own pocket not asking for anything all proceeds go directly to the winners. I’m anxious for the day when we can have a local gathering at the end of the tournament and meet each other in person.

I’m presently working with a few sporting good stores in Oklahoma that will be selling my knives and I’m certainly passing this information to all.
Thanks again brother for putting this event together; that’s what it’s all about, promoting the sport of bow hunting and good sportsmanship.
Thanks.

btw, I will be hunting Haskell and Pusmataha counties using a Matthews Halon 32 with Bloodline arrows tipped with garden variety Rage broad heads. At the awards ceremony where my first and second place bucks and the East are honored I’ll have the American flag and anthem raised. Afterwards I plan on raffling the autographed bow, 8x10 glossy of myself holding said bow, second custom sign and skinner and donating the proceeds to a good cause.....all this is assuming I can hunt rather than spending all my time acting as guide for the kids!

In a all seriousness, this should be a great contest. I appreciate Darton organizing and funding this. We certainly have a lot of skilled TBHr’s in the Sooner State! Also, things are looking up in terms of deer in Oklahoma. Below is a link to the 2018-19 Harvest Report. It is insightful regarding the harvest by week, sex taken, etc.

https://www.wildlifedepartment.com/s...%20version.pdf

Looking forward to this season!

Being West side, I believe MCAAP monsters are NOT eligible!!!!! Technically a “high fence” canned hunt. Like shootin’ fish in a barrel.

Sorry for the grammar correction, but if it's your first one it should be Inaugural after than it can be annual. It can't be an annual even till it's happened once.

I knew at Oklahoma State that choosing the non-thesis option in graduate school was going to come back to bite me

Looks like the west crew is finally showing up

Along with your entry go ahead and add your county to the post

What if your deer falls dead in the middle of the 75 Hwy? Which end to you go by? The rump or the head?


I've got no dog in this state. But want to thank the sponsors for helping out and organizing this event.

Well, if he falls anywhere near HWY 75 south of I40 he will most definitely be in the west region If he happens to fall north of the interstate we will go with the direction of the head

Yep. I was hoping to get a rise out of someone on this!

Anyone that has hunted the Ammo Plant knows what kind of an extreme challenge it is! Got my rear end handed to me by that place.

Extreme challenge is an understatement about that place. This will be my ninth time there and skunked every time so far. I had shoulder surgery 3 months ago and I don't know how well I will be able to shoot a longbow by then so I don't have a lot of faith yet that this year will be any different there this year. Hunting elsewhere with my compound I am not even worried about shooting it. Either way I am going to have fun on my hunt there and hope at the minimum I can get a good look at one of the bruisers there again and if I am lucky a shot at him.

Good luck to everyone as I can't wait to see the pics of the bucks everyone posts up.

It would be pretty cool to see pics of potential targets as the summer progresses... I just put a few cameras out this weekend so I don't know yet what's around... I do know that the 2 biggest bucks I had on camera last year were both killed, one by my neighbor and one by me.
