BIG-BUCK TRAIL CAM CONTEST

Maybe your big-buck photo will win a trail camera from the Game Commission.



As we close in on a new slate of deer seasons, the Pennsylvania Game Commission is holding a big-buck photo contest to showcase some of the huge whitetails caught on trail cameras this summer and fall in Penn’s Woods.



Procedures

Submissions should be sent to the [email protected]. Photo submissions – limited to 5 megabytes in size – must be of wild Pennsylvania deer taken with trail cameras. Winners will be selected monthly. The contest runs from Aug. 1 through Nov. 30, 2016 and photos must be taken during the month of submission.



All submissions must include the photographer’s first and last name, hometown, and the county where the deer image was recorded. The Game Commission has the right to use all submitted images. Individuals submitting photos are reminded the use of bait to attract deer to your trail cam is unlawful in Disease Management Areas and discouraged elsewhere.



Winners

Game Commission will select a group of “contending” photos for each month on the first Monday of each month starting Sept. 1 and ending Dec. 5. Once assembled, these contending photos will be placed on the Game Commission’s Facebook page in a photo album. Facebook users will determine the winning photo by “liking” the image. The contest will select monthly winners and, at its conclusion, one overall winner. Trail cameras will be awarded to all winners. The contest is not sponsored, endorsed or administered by Facebook.

My local gun club wanted some pics for there page. This was about 4 or 5 years ago. But I sent some pics. Guys asked who had the pics. Gun club told them. Ended up with several Xtra hunters that year.
I don't show anybody anything anymore. Just invites trouble to your hunting area.

I agree with Rhinoguy, why advertise? If they want photos, just cruise some of the SD cards from some of the local poachers they catch. I mean, if you really want pics of some really good bucks, the confiscated pics from some outlaws will trump any we can turn in.

And as a side note, they mention that they do not want any illegal baiting in the ad? They do know the SRA'S allow it on private property don't they?

And it is perfectly legal statewide, outside of the DMA, to use bait by trail cameras. Not sure why they would want to discourage entries that were secured using legal means to do so.

Gene, just one of those "stigma's" that Pa battles with as well as SH. No surprise there.

They want deer dead in the SRA's and encourage all of us to shoot more deer, but when it comes to the public eye, they are frightened like the PFB is at the door.
