    I will not enter the drawing. As I have been blessed to spend time in camp with Dave on several occasions. I do have a quality camera setup and might be able to travel (if necessary), depending on the schedule.

    I think it would be absolutely perfect for the hunt to be at your place Micky.  A Mathews Forum Member on a hunt with Mathews TV and its host…..at a Mathews forum members ranch!  And from what I know of you from here, your a class act brother! {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    As other have mentioned, i believe a random drawing would be fair.  This is indeed an awesome gesture and I am sure will make somebody a very happy hunter to boot!!!  The people that come forward on this forum to help others is what makes this forum such a special place.  Regardless of who gets chosen, congrats and thankyou to all involved!!!!!{#emotions_dlg.mathews_applause}

    If random is the method selected, use April 14th , 2013 or prior ” Joined ” date.

    This is a great idea Dave.  There are many ways to do this and if you want Random, and Join dates that is fine.  First off take all registered Forum Members before such a date, say 14th April, when you announced this.  Put all the forum names in a Excel spreadsheet, not just straight down but left to right as well.  Fill every square then conduct a blind drawing where you would draw 5 number sets, (ie: E7, A6, H2, I9, D65), this way you then have 5 random members.  Then research their postings and such on the board and make a decision on who gets to go.  Very fair way of doing things.

    I will not enter the drawing. As I have been blessed to spend time in camp with Dave on several occasions. I do have a quality camera setup and might be able to travel (if necessary), depending on the schedule.

    Random draw has its intuitive appeal, but having had Command and been presented with such situations, I assure you that random draw is the last thing you want, especially if it is to be representative of your Ethics or Mathews’ policy.

    I’d suggest that those who want to participate submit a PM to you explaining why their participation would mean something to them, or to others, and how they could further your core ethics of hunting, youth development, Mathews’ Christian beliefs, etc. This way you, or a committee of your choosing, could glean over the inputs and pick those who could contribute the most, or those who would most benefit.

    Now that social media is so popular, perhaps a day-to-day diary of the hunt, your input, the forum member’s input, etc., on Facebook for the Mathews forum to follow would be a good way to engage an audience. The grand culmination would be the TV episode where the social media feed back from forum members could be included.

    A very thoughtful reply as always, Brian, and one in which I’m very inclined to agree, though my earlier post would indicate otherwise. Were a general random draw to occur, there would need to be some agreement beforehand to an established set of standards consistent with Mathews TV. My only fear with an essay-type of contest would be the possibility that some great folks would not participate because they don’t think they have the writing skills to produce a submission worthy of being chosen. I’m not sure there is a ‘perfect’ solution, but I like the way you think here.

    How about we let the original person who came up with the idea first of Dave taking a forum member on a hunt chose the lucky person as long as he excludes himself.  The idea of a Dave taking a forum member on a hunt was first mentioned in the topic “What do you want to see on Mathews TV”,  in which, this topic was then started.  Sounds good to me!{#emotions_dlg.mathews_big_smile} And then we all can stop doing this {#emotions_dlg.mathews_brick_wall}{#emotions_dlg.mathews_whip}!
