2011 SC Turkey Competition Winners Receive Prizes

I recently met our 2011 Montana Decoy Turkey Competition winners to give them their prizes.  As you are most likely aware, our site audience voted and Mark and William emerged as our winners.  After the announcement we had to schedule and coordinate a meeting place to deliver the prizes.  Since Mark and William hail from areas distant from each other we had to line it up for different days and it even was raining as Mark received his prizes.  Nevertheless we still got it done, but we didn?t shoot much video? just pictures. It was definitely a good day for William Babb and Mark Cody when we met and they were all smiles as I got the prizes out of my car.

Below are the pictures and videos from the winners receiving their prizes.


Below is a video of the winners receiving their prizes


Thanks again to our sponsors and to everyone for participating in our 2011 Turkey Competitions! Without our sponsors and participants none of this would have been possible!



2011 SC Turkey Competition Winners

I just returned from a weeklong trip (where I didn?t have much connectivity) and one of the things I was interested in seeing when I returned home were the results from our 2011 SC Turkey Competitions. When I looked at our site metrics and checked the results from the competitions I saw a big surge from one city which correlated with a ton of votes for one of our entries in the Montana Decoy 2011 SC Turkey of the Year Competition!  Then in our Montana Decoy Youth Turkey of the Year Competition we ended up having a pretty close finish.

So without making you read a long entry I?ll get to it!  Our winner of the 2011 Montana Decoy Turkey of the Year Competition is Mark Cody from Chester SC! Mark obviously had some loyal voters because he won by a landslide with 458 votes with the nearest competitor only having 30.  We saw big traffic spikes out of certain cities where Mark received votes.

Then in our 2011 Montana Decoy Youth Turkey of the Year Competition William Babb edged out Alex Carnes in a close race.  William received 60 votes and Alex received 42.  William hails from Marlboro County and the bird he won the competition with was the first gobbler he?s called up and harvested by himself.

Thanks to everyone for entering this year?s competitions. Without your entries and participation we wouldn?t be able to host these competitions on the site.  And congratulations to Mark and William!  

Now we?ve got to deliver the prizes to Mark and William so? when you read this?send me an email (clint.patterson(at)WeHuntSC.com) and we?ll work out the details!

Wac?em Archery Products to Sponsor 2010 Deer Hunting Competitions
   WeHuntSC.com - Wac'em Archery Seatpacks
  Wac'em Archery Seatpacks

We?re excited to announce that Wac?em Archery Products is getting on board to sponsor the 2010 WeHuntSC.com Deer Competitions.  Wac?Em Archery products is based out of Utah and has donated 4 packs of 100 grain broad heads + 2 vertical seatpacks to the competition winners.  I?m sitting here looking at these broad heads and seat packs and I know that all you bow hunters are going to love some Wac?em Archery products. 

A little bit about Wac?em broadheads from the Wac?em Archery Products web site (www.WacemArchery.com) ?The flight of the Triton is like no other fixed blade broadhead; it truly is unbelievable. With its cut on impact head, just the right cutting diameter, and no mechanical blades to deflect, the Triton is at the head of its class in every penetration test available. The Triton, with its resharpenable head and replaceable blades, is in a class by itself. And it definitely has the ?look.?

Also, the vertical seatpacks are really neat.  If you ever have an issue with stowing your bow in your vehicle, then look no further because these seatpacks can solve your problem.  You simply strap these around the seats of your vehicle and store your bow right up next to the backside of the seat.

A big thanks to Wac?em Archery Products for working with us to offer the hunters of South Carolina some really great prize packages.  If you?d like more info on Wac?em Archery Products just venture on over to www.WacemArchery.com.

As you probably know, Founders is a reputable, South Carolina based, Credit Union that has roots in the Fort Mill area.  We?re glad to have any sponsors, but we especially like to help promote SC based organizations.  So we?d like to give a big thanks to Founders for donating hats to this year?s competition winners.

If you?re looking for a solid Credit Union that?s got great customer service, then go to Founders and open an account?and if you?re wondering?yes, I have a Founders account!




2010 Deer Hunting Competitions Announced

* I will continue to update this blog entry and the competition pages as more sponsors become involved.  So keep checking the list because the prize packages will continue to get better.

We?re pumped up to see what everyone around the state will be seeing and harvesting this coming hunting season.  As usual, we are hosting a couple competitions on the site and hunters from all over the state will compete to win prize packages and we?ve got some really good prizes to give away!  This year we have removed a competition and added 2 new ones to the mix.  You should also notice the rules for the competitions before posting any images because we are changing how the competitions work a little.

The Rules and New Changes

  • Only registered users can post pictures ? Why do you have to register to post pics you ask?because we need your contact information in case you win.  You would think it?s easy to get in contact with a winner, but many submissions have been posted to the site without a contact email address.  By registering to the site, we?ll have your email address in our database.  Don?t worry, it?s free to register and we?re not going to spam your inbox.  Anyone can post pics/videos to the regular galleries, but only registered users can post in the competitions
  • Date has to be in the picture - Due to some pictures from previous hunting seasons being posted (and complaints about it), this year we are requiring that the date be written on something in the picture to validate when the deer was harvested.  Yes, this is a pain, but if you do it right and win it?s worth the minor inconvenience.  If you?re reading this blog and hope to have an entry, then stop right now and go find a black sharpie and put it in your hunting bag just in case.  Also, if you can think of a better way to go about validating when the deer was harvested just let me know.  Any entries submitted without the date in the photo will not be considered valid entries and therefore will not win.
  • Quality of photo is highly important ? Obviously we can?t verify the weight of your deer with 100 % accuracy or the legitimate number of points on the rack.  We must trust your word in this matter.  This is why we factor in the quality of the image into the competition because sometimes the truth gets stretched!  So if you shoot a 10 point, 170 lb buck and take a bad picture and someone else shoots a 10 point, 150 lb buck but has a better picture then the best picture will be selected before the deer with the higher weight.
    Tips for taking a quality pic
  • Voting ? This year we are going ?American Idol? style with it a little.  We are going to cut off all entries on Jan 1 and will narrow it down to 3 finalists for each competition.  I will post those 3 finalists here on the site on Jan 3.  We will open the top 3 contestants to online voting to let everyone else determine the winner.  We will let voting run for 7 days and then stop the voting on Jan 10 and announce the winners on Jan 11.  Prizes will be delivered shortly thereafter.

Again, see the rules for each competition before posting
