If my deer was acquired outside of Michigan can I still enter it in the Q1 Broadcasting Big Buck Pole?
Although we’d eventually like to expand the Q1 Broadcasting Big Buck Pole contest to include state wide regions, for now hunters can only register deer that were acquired in the state of Michigan.
Do I have to have a deer entered in the Big Buck Pole Competition in order to be a member of Q1buckpole.com?
No It is not necessary to be a Buck Pole competitor to participate in the Q1Buckpole.com community.
Pictures can be uploaded in a number of ways. To upload a picture to be used in your profile, you can go to the My Account page and click on Edit at the top of your screen. To post pictures and share stories of how you bagged your buck, you can click on My Blog which will allow you to post pictures and stories.
Video: As of right now, users can not post video directly on the Q1 site. However, if you would like to submit a video to Q1 Broadcasting to be featured on the Q1 Buck Pole website or on the Q1 Buck Pole TV show, you can upload it to the Q1 Broadcasting YouTube channel to be shared with others.
All television shows will be available 24 hours a day on this website. Each show segment is available commercial free so you can view the segments that interest you the most.
To see where your buck is currently ranked, go to the Big Buck Pole section of the site. This page will not only allow you to see where you rank in your region, but also how your deer ranks in the overall competition.
Both entering the Q1 Broadcasting Big Buck Pole contest and registering to be a Q1buckpole community member are free.
To find the closest registration point in your area, go to the Registration Points section of the site. You can then use the interactive map to zoom in on your area of the state, and find which registration points are located in your region.
You must bring the deer to be measured and a valid Michigan Hunting License. You will be given a registration form to be completed and signed while your deer is being measured. A picture of you and your kill will also be taken at the registration point.
Your Total Score is the sum of five measurements: Pts on right beam, Pts on left beam, Circumference of right beam - measured one inch above the skull, Circumference of left beam - measured one inch above the skull, the inside spread - measured from the inside of the widest point of the main beams, and the longest tine.
The number of points will determine placing in case of a tie. If the bucks in question have the same number of points, placing will be determined by the inside spread. If the bucks have the same inside spread, total mass will be the tiebreaker.
No, any hunters registered on this website can win prizes and any hunters that registered a buck or doe are eligable for additional prizes. Although the biggest bucks earn prizes we encourage everyone to participate.
The regional parties are a big hit with hunters. It is a fun gathering with many hunters getting a chance to share their stories with the crowd and get on TV. Food and drinks are plenty! Prizes, gun raffles and the "Rackettes" add to the fun.
