    Starting hunt week 31 May, I will be making a small change in the 05 weekly hunts. We will only be hunting one map, instead of 2. I find myself challenged every week to find 2 matching maps with identical or close values. Usually every one figures out which one produces best for them, then hunts it accordingly. With 1 map, everyone will face the same challenges.

    Our 05 map selection needs to be freshened up. Our older site members know just about every map inside & out, & sometimes have & edge over us newer players. If you know anyone that has 05 maps that want to donate to site site so we can host & hunt them, please have them contact me. For all our existing map makers current at the site here, if you want to make a couple new ones so we all can hunt them, I would greatly appreciate it.

    The Legend is slowly coming to an end (last hunt week 21~28 June 2009). Is Jesse James unstoppable? Can any one beat him? I will award $50.00 dollars to Mossy or Ron4560 if they can bump out Jesse before the end of the legend. Good Luck! Please keep watching The Legend of DHAC Returns block (top center of the home page) for new information about the legend tournament starting in July 2009. I will be moving The Legend in a different direction, the standards for the 2nd half of the year will be different then from the 1st half of the year, but will be every bit as challenging as the first half. Stay tuned.

    Our weekly hunt numbers are down, but are still better then the other sites out there. If you have any friends from other sites you know, please invite them to hunt with us. We are the best on the internet! So, let's get our weekly numbers back up & make Magnum earn his money Sunday morning!

    Good Luck to all & Happy Hunting from all of us here on STAFF.

You're right Ron, and changing the format won't change a thing. The cream always rises to the top.....lol

Ray here is an idea for yea.  You send me the $50 bucks and I let the 4 top scoring hunters take me on in the last week, to have a chance at the new Legend title.

This Legend really wasn't all that different than any of the others, when you take the time to think of it.  When I ran the tournaments it was an elimination and the hunters had to hunt every week, do their best and with some luck, determination and skill of the game, they would make it to the end with a chance of winning the last week and become the Legend.

Right from the start I hunted for distance and weight, and every week after that.  Some chose to take smaller deer at a short distance and now they wonder why they are so far behind.  Some shot deer at 2 to 3 yards with a rifle, when it wasn't even in the weekly hunt explained to do so, I just couldn't figure that one out.

One of the Legend seasons I ran had 17 hunters sign up, but the first week I had only 12-14 hunters that sent in entries, so it wasn't hard to figure out who would be eliminated. The way this tournament was set up was to let the hunters eliminate themselves, I guess. Not following the rules of the hunt to the tee with little effort will produce minimal gain. You can not get a home run by bunting all the time, you have to swing the bat.

Keep up the good work! I agree about hunting only in one map.
I hope to hunt in the next legend, can't wait! Smile

I would like to add something else to this discussion. It's your responsibility to set up and explain the hunts, period. You should not be trying to manipulate them to control the outcome. Your efforts have been pretty transparent and have failed to work.
As for your money, even if I were lucky enough to pass Jesse, I wouldn't take it.

Mossy, no one was trying to manipulate the out come of the weekly hunts or the legend. I was just trying to do new & different stuff. I understand & expect that my decision for the direction of these hunts & the Legend will not please all. There for I understand why you have your point of view & disagreement with my direction. The Legend standards were posted well in advance for all to see. This was not and effort to keep anyone person or persons from winning (weekly or the Legend). Jesse James could have won every week if he wanted too. He choose to be a weight & distance hunter instead of a weekly winner. If he (Jesse James) would have put more time in, I am sure he could have found the winning deer each week as well as killing them from afar. He's just that good of a hunter. Nothing on my part failed, Jesse will probably win the legend (good job Jesse), & he still manages to win a weekly hunt every now & then.

I added the money incentive for two reasons, they are;
1. To keep the pressure on Jesse from people that are with in range of taking it from him (be it far range, but in range)
2. To get our forums active again. I have watched for a few weeks now, our forums go dead. I believe in this site & will do anything to make it number one & the best. I knew the almighty dollar gets everyone's attention.

Over Memorial Day weekend I will write new standards & guidelines for The Legend. You all will have a month to tear it apart in the forums, Please do so. But in December, when a new legend is awarded, and its not who you think it should have been, will you once again say I was trying to manipulate the legend, or the weekly hunts? No matter what I do, someone will disagree, I have no problems with that. All I ask is that you give it your all to make the Hagadoo the best, as I have tried in the past.

Please feel free to voice your opposing or supporting opinions, I would love to see our forums become more active again!

Thanks to all members who support the weekly hunts & the forums, Happy Hunting. Smile

Just a few more comments:

I could not win every week if I wanted too. Especially competing with hunters like Mossy and DeerKillers to name a few. They are very well seasoned hunters with a lot of knowledge of the dh2005 game. Mossy is also Legend, in my mind anyway. Just try hunting the game one handed, you will see what I mean. If I had put any more time in hunting the only other change would have been a localized divorce confined to my household.  

I didn't choose to be a weight & distance hunter instead of a weekly winner. I also hunted the way weekly hunts were explained. This is evidenced in the hunter standings, up to now anyway, DeerKillers will probably be on top after this week.

The older site members may know just about every map here inside & out, but that doesn't give us an edge over the new players. It is a misconception to think just because a hunter knows the map that he/she would know where the deer are likely to load, even SLS could not tell you that and they made the game. What does give us seasoned hunters an edge, we know where to load and what to do, on any map. All we need to get the rest of it done is time, effort and luck.

Thank you JJ. I agree with you.
