    OTA Deer Blind Contest Results & Pictures

    The 2013 OTA Deer Blind Contest was a blast again this year ! We had 10 great guys enter this contest this year.
    The first round, all the contestants had to build an ear butt in 5 minutes while being blind folded. The winners moved on to the second round and had to build two ear butts in 5 minutes. Those winners moved on to the third round and had to build an ear butt and set one eye while being blindfolded in 6 minutes. Then for the championship both guys had to build two ear butts and set set two eyes while being blindfolded within 7 minutes. I forgot to mention that winners were decided by being judged by Bryan Eppley and Dan Clark .
    And the winner for the contest was Neil Fowler.
    For prizes for this contest, the winner got an acrylic award and $100.00 Second & third place got $50.00 each
    This contest was a big hit again this year and we are already planning for next years event.
    I even learned some ear butt techiques during this contest, something new that we have never seen before !!
    We learned how some West Virginia taxidermist use a new placement spot on the skull when building their ear butts !LOL If you will look real close in the last picture, you will see what I mean. HAHAHA
    Congrats to everybody and thanks for taking part in this !

    2013 OTA Dart Competition hosted by Rod Tennant, Jim Tucker & Lee Maxwell. These dart games always took place after midnight !!! This made for some early mornings, as anyone who saw me first thing in the morning can vouch for !! LOL Some challenges from some boys from that state up north have already been set, so they better be practicing before next year !! ;D
