    What to do if you want to enter the competition for this FREE HUNTING SAFARI

    To enter this contest, in this thread make one post with your best guesses for each animal individually for all of the four trophy animals pictured below. Measurements are for the longest horn/tusk or outside spread of horns (not including bases). These must be given in inches to the nearest quarter inch using decimal points (example .25 = quater inch, .50 = half inch, .75 = three quater inch). The contest will be judged based upon the closest cumulative score of the difference between the actual measurements and each guess to the nearest quarter inch, the person who wins should have the closest guesses for each animal overall. You may only enter this contest once.

    AfricaHunting.com has a collection of articles on Judging Trophies which are great guides to help you better estimate the measurement of these trophies, click here to check out these articles.

    Hello Guys

    Thanks for taking part in the competition !
    There is still alot of time left before the competition expires but maybe the best sometimes is to just go ahead with your gut feel and put down your estimate before other people confuse you.

    Good luck to all !!
