The next MASTC Awards Banquet (#40 & #41) will be held on April 27th, 2019 at the Augusta Civic Center in Augusta, ME. This will be for trophies taken in the 2017 and 2018 hunting seasons.
We are getting a lot of questions about why we are not having an Awards Banquet this year.
For those new to MASTC, we started hosting the Awards Banquet every other year due to the decreasing number of entries each year.
Our goal for the banquet is to recognize the animal and the hunter and showcase as many trophies as possible and we did not feel that we could do this appropriately by continuing the banquet each year.
For a perspective, the following are the total entries for Typical and Perfect deer from the last 30 years:
1985 - 206 entries - Minimum score 140-0/8"
1992 - 138 entries - Minimum score 140-0/8"
1997 - 133 entries - Minimum score 140-0/8"
2004 - 193 entries - Minimum score 135-0/8"
2009 - 85 entries - Minimum score 135-0/8"
2016 - 40 entries - Minimum score 135-0/8"
We revised the minimum entry for deer in 2004 from 140-0/8" (All Time) to 135-0/8" (Awards).
(All Time entries remain in the records book every year while Awards entries are only in the records book the year it
We are still getting amazing trophies, just not as many as we have in the past! We encourage you to spread the word and get people to have their trophies scored. As always, scoring is free!
