White Tail Contest and Doe Tags

To enter the White Tail contest you can sign up here https://ccwma.org/payment-center/ . Remember for online entries, if you are not paying dues for one of the WMAs you do not need to select a WMA for the contest, if you harvest a buck the scorer will mark on the data sheet which WMA it was from.  For online entry select the number of hunters to enter and then enter the same number of names below.  If you enter by mail you can include all the names you would like to enter and payment at $20 per person.  Keep in mind there are deadlines on entry, get it in ASAP so you don’t forget and there will be entry forms at the fall meetings. 

To add to it, if you check a buck in that doesn’t place you could win $100 gift card just for checking it in and being entered in the contest. 

The herd comp counts were due the first week of September and dues plus the MLD fee need to be paid ASAP if you haven’t already.  Mark Lange will be issuing tags in the next week or so only to properties that have completed everything.  So if you have counts they need to be turned in to Jerry Rogers via email at Jerry.Rogers@mcdermott.com very soon and dues need to be paid to your leadership or online at ccwma.org under payment center.  The MLD via needs to be paid at https://lma.tpwd.state.tx.us/ by logging in and clicking the shopping cart on the upper right.  Currently we have roughly half of the properties signed up in MLD that have returned herd comp counts, it’s a requirement to get tags so if you want tags you need to send in counts. 

Any questions let me know.
