DO NOT USE THIS THREAD FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN SCORING YOUR TURKEY...PLEASE post other business on another thread so we won't have to sift through other posts to get scores. (thanks )
Here are the rules for the 2014 contest. They are pretty much the same as previous years.
1) All turkeys will be measured using the NWTF method. Here is a link to help you measure your bird.
Here is a link for a scoring calculator (but we want you to post the individual measurements that make up the total score - our spreadsheet will calculate the total score for the bird) [Please note that if your bird has multiple beards that only the longest one will count and the same thing holds true for the rare multiple spur bird as well.]:
2) List your birds weight, beard and spur lengths along with the picture.
3) Please remember that you must have the bow in the picture with the bird. No bow in the picture means no score. No exceptions.

Team Score Updates: Midlife Crisis will try to update the team scores every Sunday morning (as early as 4 am, but probably no later than noon Eastern time) starting in mid-April, but this may not always be the case due to travel, church, or failure to remember to post an update (I’m gettin’ old and never really know what day of the week it is anyways….). The pdf score file and team scores thread will begin sometime around the third Sunday in April and will not be updated more than once each week.
Check your score once it appears on the pdf file (scored through your post number) to make sure Midlife got it right (correct hunter awarded points, right number of points - I've been known to make a mistake or two .... - if you notice something, send Midlife Crisis a PM telling him how he messed up - again).
Good Luck everyone!
