Official Contest Rules

 

Last Updated 6/29/2017
Welcome to HUNTNBUDS.COM! We hope you totally enjoy every aspect of our site, contests, competitions, and services we provide.


Official Contest Rules: These are subject to change and vary from contest to contest; therefore, it is required of each contestant to become familiar with each individual contest’s rules before entering.


Most contests use a scoring method of BOONE AND CROCKETT OR POPE AND YOUNG OR LONGHUNTER SOCIETY.  You can do the initial measuring.  IF YOU ARE IN THE RUNNING FOR A PRIZE, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE AN OFFICIAL BOONE AND CROCKETT OR POPE AND YOUNG OR LONGHUNTER SOCIETY CERTIFICATION BEFORE ANY PRIZE WILL BE AWARDED.


Winners will be determined by the highest OFFICIAL BOONE AND CROCKETT OR POPE AND YOUNG OR LONGHUNTER SOCIETY SCORES!  

Prizes (cash or products) can only be awarded to a responsible adult over the age of 18!

 
Tie or multiple Winners: In the unlikely event of a tie, priority will be given first to animals that are harvested with a bow, then muzzle loader, then rifle. If there is still a tie, then priority will be given first to animals that are harvested on public land (vs. private land) and those animals that are harvested without a guide. If there is still a tie, the winner will be determined by the earliest exact time/date the Hunter(s) entered the specific contest. 


All harvested animals must be harvested legally and lawfully. You may use the same animal for multiple contests, so long as it qualifies for each contest entered.


Other documentation that MAY be required:
1. AN OFFICIAL BOONE AND CROCKETT OR POPE AND YOUNG OR LONGHUNTER SOCIETY CERTIFICATION BEFORE ANY PRIZE WILL BE AWARDED.
2. Clearly focused, close-up photographs of the front, left side, and right side of your trophy's antlers or horns or tusks. 
3. An Entry Affidavit signed by the hunter. The hunter's signature must be witnessed by a B&C Official Measurer or a notary public.
4. A Hunter, Guide, and Hunt information form completed and signed by the hunter.
5. A copy of the hunting license and/or tag for this trophy.

Deadline for the Official Measure scores will vary depending on the specific contest.

For Team Contests, winnings will be assigned to the Team owner.  The owner will then be responsible for disbursement to the rest of the team.
Void where prohibited.
