2018 STORY CONTEST SPONSORED BY HUNTIN’ FOOL AND CHRISTENSEN ARMS S TA F F A R T I C L E VANESSA HUNT LEAD EDITOR T he 2017 hunting season has all but come to a close, and we hope you were successful. If you were lucky enough to harvest a big game animal this season, don’t miss out on the chance to see your harvest photos and stories printed in our magazine and to win some incredible prizes. Not only does each submission we receive have the opportunity to be published within the pages of our magazine, but the submitter may also win some great prizes. With that being said, I am pleased to announce the details of our 2018 Story Contest. We are excited to offer some brand new prizes strictly for our story contest. Send us your successful harvest stories and photos to be eligible to win some great prizes in the following categories. 2018 COVER PRIZE: ELR Bolt Action Rifle (Caliber of your choice) 2 0 1 8 C O V E R S T ORIES The Title Sponsor for 2018 is Christensen Arms. Thanks to them, the 12 hunters whose photos grace the covers of our magazine this year will receive an ELR bolt action rifle. It was created specifically as a dedicated long-range hunting rifle. Paired with its lightweight, adjustable carbon fiber composite stock and integrated 20-MOA rail, this rifle is prepared to consistently deliver the payload at extended ranges. The TROPHY ROOM PHOTO PRIZE: ELR comes standard with an enlarged bolt knob, enhanced grip angle, and five flush cup attachment points. Each Cover Story winner has their choice of caliber for this rifle. The retail value of the Cover Story prize is over $2,700. We are excited to partner with Christensen Arms to bring each of our Cover Story winners this amazing prize. Our cover stories are chosen based on a variety of criteria, which includes the size of the animal, quality of the photos submitted, variety of the photos submitted (harvest and supporting), and if the angle and pose of the photo fits our cover design. If you’re interested in submitting your story and photos to be considered for one of our covers, make sure you send us harvest photos that showcase different angles. The more options our graphic designer has to work with, the better chance you have of making the cover.
