On 11/18 Lungerbuster posted a buck for the contest, scored about 12 points. It was killed with a bow, but looks to be during rifle season. It's his second buck prior to the end of rifle season, is why I believe it was during rifle season.

It must be tagged with a rifle tag, so should we score it as an archery kill or a rifle kill. Just want to make sure it is fair for everyone.

I'd ask him how he tagged it----It it was an illegal buck then It should not score at all------:cheers:

sounds like an illegal kill if he already tagged his rifle buck tag earlier , and if he used a bow tag the agents should be after him already

I'd say if he killed it during firearms season and tagged it with a firearms tag, it still counts as an archery kill. It is legal to use archery equipment during firearms season with a firearms tag.

But, if it was illegal then it shouldn't count at all.

And if you need help with the contest, Mike let me know.

His first buck was kill with a bow during bow season, thats why I am assuming this is should have been tagged as a rifle.

Tagged as a rifle....scored as a rifle?

I am pretty sure he killed it during rifle season with archery tackle. I believe that if it is taken by legal means then award it points for the tackle it was taken with not the tag that was put on it.

A Mature buck with a bow on public ground during rifle season is a feat and a accompishment that IMHO be rewarded not down graded.

Just my $0.02 :cheers::cheers::cheers:

Pretty sure last years rules we determined if it was killed with a bow, it was to be scored as a bowkill, no matter the tag used.

Agree with the last two posts, assuming it was tagged with a rifle tag. If so, sounds like we should score it as archery if that is what was used. I don't like the idea of a one person team winning, but he is a killing machine.
