2013 HSO.com Member Substitute Sign Up

Recommended Posts

Every year we have a few individuals who have good intentions but things come up where they are unable to participate in the turkey contest they are signed up for.

So we have have a substitute pool to draw from where we randomly draw a person to fill the spot from those who might have missed the original deadline.

Sign up here and if your lucky enough to shoot a nice bird complete the photo requirements, form, etc and post in the entry thread. If we have no shows I will draw from the available pool. If you have a bird entered, great. If you hunt later great. If you had to eat your tag...well it's still good. Cheer on your new team mates.

Stick, keep in mind that the current list of scrubs, um, subs is really, really weak. The one guy who's signed up so far is kinda like the last kid to make the junior high basketball team- can't dribble, can't shoot, and has no court sense whatsoever! You should have appropriately low expectations for that guy!

Even if their a scrub it still gives all the team the same number of players. DrJ.....

Yeah right Scoot. That scrub is usually the one who shoots a 27 lb., triple bearded bird with 2" eye gougers for spurs.

LOL- I've never shot or even hunted turkeys, so I'm pretty sure I'll make plenty of rookie mistakes. However, I'm going to give it the ol' college try with stick and string! I'm not a gun hunter, but I have to admit the run and gun approach used with shotgun does appeal to me. I'd love to be able to run and gun like the shotgunners, but use my bow. By the sounds of it, the two don't work very well together.

You can do it and if sitting in your blind for hours on end isn't your thing, I'd actually recommend you do. It's supposed to be fun and there's no right or wrong way. Will your odds at success be lower? Probably, but you'll be doing it the way you enjoy & when you connect after 10 or 20 failed attempts, it'll be highly rewarding! laugh

Get out in front of them, have some really good cover to hide in, have a decoy out front to take their attention, and pick the right time to draw. Piece of cake! smile

That may be how it ends up happening! If my kids are along it'll mostly be sitting in the big ol' blind I made for Tom. If not, I may have to stretch my legs and get busted a few times...

Sorry about that a family member unexpectedly passed away right around that time and i became very busy with school and sports, I also was confused about how to go about getting it registered but i am all clear now. Don't just assume that it was negligence.

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
