UPDATE

The first competition as some have guessed is going to be Geese shooting.
I have a map setup with two full decoy spreads with blinds and two people will be in each blind.
At the start of the match I will be using the random number generator again, so people can decide which blind they would like to hunt from.

  • Competition Length is one hour.
  • Geese must be shot while airborne.
  • Highest Total CSS dictates the final placings.
  • Geese must be shot with either the .22 grasshopper or the .357 magnum.
  • Scopes may be used.

The second competition has had to change, but it is all ready to go when the camera is up and ready ;)

Because of the nature of Geese shooting sometimes, I have decided to just make two rounds. After the first hour of shooting we will take a quick break and reload the map. This time the players will switch blind positions and hopefully this gives everyone a fair chance and everyone has the same opportunities.

Like originally stated this competition is the first of its kind and all going to plan they will become a regular event.

The prizes!

1st Place:
The new Inline Muzzleloading Pistol
A hunting tower
Full spread of Geese

2nd Place:
The Inline Muzzleloading Pistol
A Hunting Tower
Half a spread of Geese

3rd Place:
A Hunting Tower
A quarter spread of geese

4th Place:

A Hunting Tower


Cheers All!

- In which reserve will this happen ? TBC ;)
- What species will be hunted ? Specific details will be announced closer to the time
- Which EW staff will be there also, in the hunt ? Just me, not hunting
- All the players selected will be winners , in the end , right ? ;) Yes if you make it into the comp, you will not walk away empty handed.

Nice idea! Though probably not made for most of the working population in Europe or the Americas... :( Would be nice to have those events on a weekend!

Anyway, good luck for everyone who enters! :)

Sadly I must concur with Tanngnjostr. But that is gernerally the problem with the streams of EW. Most people work during the week and cannot participate in these.

4pm CET is about 6:30pm in here! So, not a big problem for me!
I entered. But I hope I could connect to the host if I selected! :D

This is a nice event. Good job EW. ;)

Since the competition luckily is during the norwegian winter vacation I've thrown my name in as well.
Sounds like a cool thing, but I do agree with Tann & Willem, maybe host during a weekend next time?

And I suspect that the first part of the comp. will be either turkey or canada goose, since only those two can be hunted with both the .22 & .357 ;)

One question tho: Those of us with a slightly unstable connection, can we rejoin the server in case we disconnect during the comp.?
