guys, we have to get these pictures right. I was looking at the photos for DMP first bird he posted and neither of the bonus point pics are going to be accepted. We have to have the date verifcation in EVERY picture. Go take a look at SMAN bird post, they are done correctly.

I took a look at mine, and the date is not clear on most of them. Good news, I have three more weeks to hunt. I have digital scales, but having a hard time balancing the bird,newspaper with date, and taking a clear pic. Any suggestions?

You got me... My problem is I hunt alone a good bit and my phone sucks but work pays for it so I don't complain. Normally I am too far from anywhere to pick up a newspaper just to take some pictures with. Hate to say it but this will probably be my last year in the contest. All of these pictures and trying to make sure they're perfect are starting to ruin the hunt for me.

Killed two more the last two days. One is a 5 pt bird and the other 6 pt. I will get the pics posted up soon.

I am in the same boat....but a tripod helps out a lot with the pics when you are solo. Also I started using clothes pins to hold the beard on the tape and one of those large binder clips to hold the tape on the leg for spur measurements. Seems to work out pretty good but still a pain in the behind to do.

Sorry for the screw up guys.
I have tagged out here in SC and had to enter a 6pt bird and two 5 pt birds. Would have been two 7 pt birds had I gotten the photos right.

I totally understand your frustration DMP! Some of the very best solo picture takers on here this year, screwed up last year once or three times. My point is that with a little practice, it becomes alot easier and wont spoil your hunt. I have thoroughly enjoyed your videos and you are an asset to any team that is Lucky enough to get yah. Again, I understand your frustration totally but dont give up the contest next year.:smile:

Hey man don't sweat it! At least you're killing birds, I'm not even hearing them! You have entered 3 birds and that's all I could ask for in a teammate. Congrats on your awesome season! I am trying my best and hope to have some entries. You have definitely kept us going thus far!
