As always, the lure of a great prize–make that, a choice between two great prizes–brought out the best in Whitetail 365 readers. When the folks at Bass Pro Shops (basspro.com) offered our caption contest winner the option of an Oculus 7.0 binocular or an Oculus Angled Spotting Scope, Hurteau and I had the happy chore of wading through nearly 500 entries (see them all here). It was no easy task whittling those down to ten finalists and one winner. But whittle we did, and here are ten entries — in no particular order — that came oh-so-close to grabbing the glass.
“Pssst. See these antlers? They’re fakes. I know a guy who can help you out too.” from airbornedoc
“I SAID, YOU NEED TO GET YOUR HEARING CHECKED! YOU NEVER KNEW HOW MANY TIMES I WALKED BEHIND YOU IN YOUR TREESTAND LAST FALL!'” from airbornedoc
“Unit 12, first season, just west of the big oak near the creek–wait for the big 10 pointer. And it has to look like an accident!” from fezzant
“Wanting to avoid a social faux pas, Bill tries desperately to remember whether deer kiss on both cheeks or just one.” from Christopher LaClair
“Dr. Dolittle–The Later Years.” from -Bob
“Psst… did you know it’s good luck to wear little bells on your shoes when you’re hunting?” from Robert L. Prince
“Remember the time I swapped Jim’s Rogaine with Tink’s #69 before we went to the petting zoo with the kids?” from asrenstrom
“Bambi, the People Whisperer, creates another vegetarian…” from Hopalong
“We score humans on their bald spots, Jim. I’d say you gross about 34 inches” from Shellcracker
“Psst……everyone is grumbling cause ‘Aflaaaaaaac’ won the last caption contest.” from WHOSURDAD
And the winner–submitted by daveyn–was this gem:
“Don’t say anything to the kid but his mom and I aren’t exactly exclusive if you know what I mean… “
Congrats daveyn! We’ll be contacting you soon so we can get you into some new optics for this fall’s hunting season.
