2011/12 HPA Buck Pool- Entries Only-17 and up

No pre-registration is required!!!

This thread is for Buck Pool entries for hunters 17 years of age and up only! All other posts will be deleted.

To enter the HPA buck pool just post a picture of you and your buck, and include a sign, decal, or something in the picture that says "HunitngPA 2011" or "HPA 2011". That is all it takes to be in the running for the grand prizes.<u>All pictures may be entered</u>, and there will also be prizes for those, but to be eligible for the grand prizes get that sign, decal, or whatever, and have HuntingPa 2011, or HPA 2011 in your picture.You must signify 2011.Remember photo edits will not be accepted this year.

The contest goes all the way til the end of the regular late archery/flintlock season. SO any PA AR legal buck can be entered from 10/1/2011 - 1/16/2012. Winners will be chosen randomly from the entire buck pool in late January, so antler size does not matter, ENTER ALL BUCKS, they all have equal chance at winning.

REMEMBER YOU MUST HAVE "HuntingPA 2011, or HPA 2011" NOTED SOMEWHERE IN THE PIC ENTRY, also try to take the best picture possible.Your smile, the scenery all make for a great picture.

This is all about showing our pride for HuntingPa, and sharing our buck harvest pictures with our HPA family, along with some great prizes from HPA, members, and sponsors.Prizes will be coming in throughout the season.

With the pic you can include any stats you want, including county killed, weapon used, time, etc...but if you want to tell the entire story please we HIGHLY encourage you to start your own thread on your hunt so members can reply etc.

Itís that time of year everyone so get out there, and find those bucks!Good Luck, and be Safe

Forgot the HPA sign until it was too late. I shot him with the Parker Buckbuster 175, with victory arrows with lumenoks and American Broadhead Company Bolt Sonic Broadheads. He ran about 50 yards, stood there for a few seconds and fell over dead. Double lunged him.

Sorry, I didn't realize that 2011 had to be in the photo until I was about to post this. The deer is at the taxidermist now so I have no way to take another pic.


Now where have we seen this before??

Re: 2011/12 HPA Buck Pool- Entries Only-17 and up

Here is my entry. Date's on the pic (time's an hour off, if that's important, lol). Didn't even think of the HPA sign thing until after the fact, so I guess I'm only in the running for the smaller prizes, but that's ok.





(Sorry about the blood in the snow...I can try to retouch the pics to take it out, but these are the unedited pics for authenticity's sake. With snow on the ground, I kept trying to cover the blood with more snow, but one drop and it shows like that again.)

Wish it would have been in the daylight, but I just had to get some pics in the snow!

I have that pic in full-res version, but it'll blow up the forum layout if I post that. If that's needed for the contest, let me know where to email/send it.

Congrats to the others who have (and who will in the coming days/seasons) posted their entries!


EDIT: Gross score on the antlers is 102" as I measured it. Would have probably edged over 110" if he hadn't had his beams busted off. He girthed 43", but I forgot to measure him before gutting him. I didn't split the sternum all the way up so it probably was accurate. Chart says that's 234lbs. live, which I'd believe. He was a big boy.

Sorry no date or HPA card. Didn't read the rules and never expected to wish I did, just shows you never know. Shot in 1A 11/10/11 with my old 1992 Browning compound, aluminum shafts and fixed 3 blade Easton broadhead.

11/28/2011 - 8 a.m. - 8 pt. - 10" spread. Not a big one but he'll work. Hard to see in this picture but he looks to be blind in his left eye. It's green and looks glassy.
