Called in roadkill does not count! So far it looks like Jaspr is going to walk away with a sweet prize due to lack of competition.  ::) ::) ::)

I like to enter this hunt but CAN NOT! Jasper1 is trying to cheat already by requesting a 3-day check in just for him and his group.
 Also since when does roadkill not count? That's a new rule that Goosebumps will not be able to withstand.
 So let me get this right !! There is no curfew for the older guys hunting after 10 at night? I can see where some retirement homes would have a problem with that!
Sonny guiding these old blind guys too something in a trap and yelling shoot! shoot!. Well that should not set will with guys when a guide take advantage of old people like that. Also how long was that poor animal in the trap. Could be in there a couple of days till he gets these old guys to the spot to shoot them.
 Yeah I don't think that's the kind of hunt I want to get in. Well not yet anyway.
For a brief moment I could hear nature through all the noise.

Buckwheat, the 24 hour Rule- so Old Coots don't forget to check-in.
Which is a valid point since we forget to check in with the Wife, forget our daily medicines & forget what we can in the room for.

Jasper's suggestion of extended check-in time has merit.
48 hour or 72 hour check-in, Photo hunt contests- This will help out folks that hunt hours from home or staying away from home for a few days.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D   BW says "I like to enter this hunt but CAN NOT!".......... ??? ??? ??? ???.......Scared of the competition?  :-[ :-[  "Yeah I don't think that's the kind of hunt I want to get in."  ::)  I guess not   :P  your still hunting for the bathroom in the middle of the night  :o :o.........Goose pack a snack we will have to go to Valley Forge to BW's winter home and ask the Missus for him  >:( >:( like we did for Sonny... :P....Goose I hope the prize is an 8 pack of Oatmeal-Granola bars so we can split it 6 for me and 2 for you  ;) ;).....also be watching for a sneak attack by the silent (so far) other "COOTs"......I was going to go deer hunting but I am going to the range instead to practice "not missing".... :-[ :-[........................................ 8)  BTW Hern says:"Jasper's suggestion of extended check-in time has merit. "...Hern's educated analysis of the situation  ::) takes a front seat to your KNEE JERK reaction  :P :P :P...BW.......just sayin....
