Photo Contest # 17

Getting participation is tough I know so I'm thinking we should try this:
Enter your very best harvested game animal, deer, bear, turkey, upland game, ect. trophy photo. Sorry no fish that could be a separate category of its own later.

Rules are easy.
<span style="color: #FF0000">One entry only </span>
Harvest must have taken place this year 2009 in Pa.
Photograph must be tasteful and taken with respect for the bird or animal. Meaning bloody photos of animals hung from a rope in a garage or with their tounges hanging out in the back of a truck are not acceptable.
Contest will begin on Sunday Jan. 3rd and end on Midnight Sunday Jan. 10th.


Good luck all, I know there are some very well done hero shots out there I have seen many posted here. Please keep in mind it's not the size of the rack or length of the beard that counts its the quality of the photo that is being judged. If you think your pic would look good on the cover of a magazine then thats the kind of pic that will win.

How dare the hundreds of disrespectful hunters on this site who have posted pics of deer hanging, or in the backs of trucks!!

Re: Photo Contest # 17

Here is my son and his first Turkey hunt score at age 10 1/2 from May of 09. Camera used was a cheap Olympus stylus 4.0 megapixel on a self timer.

I know it's not a great picture to many but for my son and I it is sure a winner, as he is a high functiong Autistic and has come very long way from the beginning!

He also shot his first Buck a 3 point the first day also, very proud. Sorry for the Bragging


Having one child makes you a parent; having two makes you a referee... Take your kid's hunting!!!

Re: Photo Contest # 17

I posted an edit version of this pic in another forum but I feel it is the best hero shot we've taken in years.

Sometimes it's not the size of the antlers but the memories we make and the lives we touch.
