Competitions cannot be activated during a hunt. Any changes made during a hunt will only take effect the next time a hunt is started. Entries submitted before that will not be considered. It's advised to wait for 5-10 minutes after activating a competition before starting a hunt.
Make sure you read all competition requirements such as Single vs. Multiplayer, hunting reserve, ammunition, player pose, platform used, animal state, and organs hit. If the competition requires multiple animals to be harvested and allowed across different attempts, You will only see your score after the required number of animals has been harvested.
Check if the deer you shot is Typical or Non-Typical. Non-Typical deer have abnormal antlers. Their statistics are recorded separately and they have their own competitions. They cannot be counted for typical competitions. You can recognise a non-typical deer as follows:
- Non-Typical Whitetail Deer has more than 8 points on each antler
- Non-Typical Mule Deer has more than 5 points on each antler
- Non-Typical Blacktail Deer has more than 5 points on each antler
For bird species (except Turkey) to qualify for competitions, they need to be shot while airborne. If successful, they will have 'A' letter next to their score rather than 'G', which is given when shot on the ground.
