PRO Hunt Series II

Postby hunterPRO1 » October 29th, 2021, 10:23 am

Welcome to the second Edition of the PRO Hunt Series. last time CurlyCoyote and Tezzer dueled right up to the end, and Curly managed to overcome a penalty to win by just one point.

before we begin there are a few things i would like to bring to everyone's attention.

first: rule changes!
There are 3 major changes to the rules from last time,

1: Attempt Limits, you will no longer have unlimited attempts

2: Max hunt time: to keep things fair so that there is no loophole in attempt limits by leaving the game open to go to the next day, hunts will have time limits

3: "Saving for Later" ALL WOUNDED ANIMALS MUST BE HARVESTED for the hunt to count. no more shooting an animal and leaving it incase there's a bigger one.


second: format changes
While the format is mostly the same, the field has been expanded to 8 players (up from 6) and i have made the decision that pts will NOT carry over from round 1 to round 2.
everyone will have a clean slate after each round.

also animal scores will be simplified to the nearest tenth before being adjusted or added to total score. (example, score of 156.7685 > 156.8)
scores will be simplified before being adjusted, (example, coyote scores will have decimal moved right one space, coyote scoring 56.789 > 56.8 > 568.0
if this is to complicated don't worry, with the exception of the qualifier i will be willing to do all scoring myself. help is appreciated but not necessary.

OFFICIAL RULES!!!:
Spoiler:
entry rules:
HOW TO ENTER:
you will attempt all goals within the same hunt, you will then post the link to that hunt in this discussion. only one entry per round, per contestant.


WHEN TO HUNT
hunts must start and end within the specified time frame. a hunt that was started before, or finished after the time limit is not allowed.
IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE COMPETITIOR TO UNDERSTAND START AND END TIMES IN THEIR TIME ZONE!!! https://greenwichmeantime.com/time-gadg ... converter/


WHEN TO SUBMIT YOUR HUNT
hunts may be submitted from the beginning of and up to 24 hours after the end the round.
hunt submission must be made within 24 hours of the hunts end time.


TAGS:
you must have a tag for any animal that you shoot, if bag limit is exceeded in the entered hunt: first offence is a warning(essentially you get one freebie, use it for a leaderboard animal or rare). second offence will remove your highest scoring animal from that hunt. third violation is a DQ.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FILL ALL TAGS, YOU JUST CANT EXCEED THEM!!!



ATTEMPTS: (NEW RULE)
YOU WILL HAVE A SET NUMBER OF ATTEMPTS FOR EACH PART OF THE COMPETITION, AN ATTEMPT IS DEFINED AS A HUNT EITHER LASTING MORE THAN 10 MINUTES, OR WITH AN ANIMAL TRACKED, SPOTTED, OR SHOTS FIRED, ON A CURRENT COMPETITION RESERVE AFTER THE ROUND HAS STARTED.


MAX HUNT TIME: (NEW RULE)
MAXIMUM LENGTH OF HUNT, GENERALLY 3 HOURS.


SAVING FOR LATER RULE: (NEW RULE PLEASE READ!!!!!!!)
Due to some competitors finding a loophole in the bag limit rule, ALL WOUNDED ANIMALS MUST BE HARVESTED for the hunt to count. no more shooting an animal and leaving it incase there's a bigger one.


LANGUAGE:
all entries must be made in english. https://translate.google.com/

========================================================

FORMAT: (ADJUSTED)
qualifier, anyone can enter, top 8 advance to round 1
round 1: winner of round one advances to the final, last place is eliminated from competition completely
round 2: pts reset, winner advances to the final, other players are elidgible for the last chance qualifier
Last chance qual: the 5 remaining players compete for the last spot in the finals in some crazy challenge
final round: 3 hunters, winner take all.



SCORING:(ADJUSTED)
ANIMALS:
scores will generally be calculated by taking the scores of animals, multiplied by the harvest value as a percentage. (100 score x 75hv = 75 score)
(there may be special scoring rules for certain round/hunt/species to make the value of certain animals equal to, less than, or more than others. these will be listed under that part in the scoring section
the most common examples of these are moving decimals or multiplying or dividing by 2, example: to make a rabbit scoring 1500 comparable to a deer scoring 150, the rabbit will count for the competition as 150.0 or to make it less valuable than the deer 15.00 or 150.0/2 = 75)
ALWAYS READ THE SCORING NOTES BEFORE ATTEMPTING A PART OF THE COMPETITION.

scores of all animals will be rounded to the nearest whole number, (a whitetail scoring 155.4592 will be scored as 155)


ROUNDS:
rounds will be broken up into parts.

points will be scored for each part based on where you placed for that part:
1st 10 pts
2nd 7 pts
3rd 5 pts
4th 3 pts
5th 2 pts
6th 1 pt

IN THE EVENT OF A TIE THE TIE BREAKERS WILL BE- AVERAGE HARVEST VALUE > AVERAGE SHOOTING ACCURACY > LONGEST SHOT

So every Timbergold Trails werewolf session wakes me up? :shock:
P. S. If attempts are deducted, it is a big mistake to start qualifying for mule deer bucks in this reserve. Only Loggers Point could be specified. Or I didn't understand something)))

Good point. I've already blown through my 5 attempts slaying Werewolves. Maybe don't open TGT until after the Halloween event is over.
