It’s time and no one else is stepping up here, so…

Allegations of this being rigged have been investigated and determined false, so feel free to enter with no concerns about the integrity of the contest. 

Odd year for lots of folks. Is the runt lingering more into rifle season? Will many giants be shot on the opener? When will the booners really start to roam? Do deer still exist in Wisconsin? We will see. 

Same rules as always, scoring details are in the screen shot. If you don’t declare your admission by shooting time on 11-18-23, you are not eligible. This is for the 9 day rifle hunt only, and does not extend into the muzzleloader season. 

I am in. 

Good luck to everyone. Be safe.

Sorry all for being late on the announcement of a winner, but better than never I guess.

Congrats to Johnny W! Lake link bragging rights til next year. Dandy buck. 

And congratulations to the other successful buck baggers who entered.

I can feel only so bad for Lucas. I’d take a buck like that over bragging rights any day. Heck of a deer.

BMR- Nice buck..Congrats..  

The mass on that 14-ptr though is really impressive. Congrats to Lucas but he might be spoiled for life if he has already taken two bruisers at his young age

Dang it ,  forgot to get myself and grandson Lucas in this year. As the defending champion from 2022 Lucas missed the chance for a back to back. He would have most likely won it all with the big, heavy rack 14 pointer he shot on opening day.
Sorry Lucas, my bad.

Not in the mix due to daughter here with 9 month old grandson from Germany. Sight seems awful quiet. Buddies have harvested 5 nice bucks from La Fayette and Adams counties. Lets see em!
