They have had this contest on the website for several years, and I can't say that I've ever seen them on display. :shrug:

No display (that I have seen), and no prizes talked about......kinda hard for me to give you 5 bucks to give you rights to my photo. :shrug:

Maybe it's just me but with them using the "MDC" letters it seems to lead me towards believing that the proceeds go to Missouri Department of Conservation.......but in reality it goes to Missouri Deer Classic and not the real MDC as we tend to believe it to in the rules posting.:shrug:

Hopefully he can answer our questions. I do seem to remember seeing some sort of display last year back in the arena area on a cork board...:shrug:

Got an answer to most of my questions I asked Mr. Roper.

Here is my email I sent to him with my questions:
---------------------------------------------------
2010 Missouri Deer Classic Columbia Missouri

Two questions pertaining to the Game Camera Photo Contest....

1. Do the photos have to be from 2009 or can they be from any year?

2. Can I mail in my entries and how many can I send in? Where do I mail my entries or do I have to turn them in at the Classic.

Thanks,
Bill Stewart

His return email:

Bill,
They do not have to be from 2009 they just have to have date and times in the photo.

Also you can mail them to:
Game Camera Photo Contest
c/o Ron Roper
213 Sixth St.
Farmington, Mo 63640

I will make sure they are displayed.

Thanks
Ron Roper
MDC Chairman

I found out that the prize will be a new game camera.

Mr. Roper changed the website listing of the rules of which I corrected on my original post. All I have to do now is get some 8 X 10's printed and mailed off. No way I can loose...:whistle:
