    Thanks to all who have entered this incredible judging trophies contest! Thanks again to Willem from Koedoeberg for his generosity to our community. We'll be announcing later on in this thread the winner or in in case of a tie, the usernames of the members who have tied.

    The actual trophy measurements for the trophy judging contest are as follows:
    Kudu - 53.25 inches
    Eland - 37 inches
    Wildebeest - 25.25 inches
    Warthog - 13.50 inches



    No one got all of the measurements exactly right and after computing all of the valid entries to see who guessed closest overall, we have a tie. Two members, nkjonas (post# 15) and 35bore (post# 124) both came within 2 inches of difference.

    Their guesses were as follows:

    - nkjonas
    Kudu 54.25 :: 1.00 difference
    Eland 37.75 :: .75
    Wildebeest 25.25 :: .00 difference
    Warthog 13.25 :: .25 difference
    cumulative difference 2.00

    - 35bore
    Kudu 54.00 :: .75 difference
    Eland 36.25 :: .75
    Wildebeest 25.50 :: .25 difference
    Warthog 13.25 :: .25 difference
    cumulative difference 2.00

    I just want to put this out there... This was a painstaking process to figure out, and I did it to the best of my ability but if you feel that there was an error with the computing of your entry please contact me by email within 24 hours from the posting of this post and I will look at your entry. After this time no entry will be reconsidered.

    Since we have a tie, it will be broken amongst the members who have tied by judging additional trophy pictures. The opportunity to participate in the tie breaker will be limited to the members who have tied and who post their tie breaking guesses in this thread within 3 days (72 hours) from the time that the tie breaker photos are posted. The tie breaking trophy photos will be posted after 24 hours.

    Well I was the first to post numbers and was off by 2 inches total and I congratulate the winner! It proves nothing I guess if not how hard it is to accurately judge these animals even with all the time in the world. A PH must judge these critters in an instant! Thanks again for the opportunity!
