Fish and wildlife enthusiasts invited to share photos

OLYMPIA – Washingtonians have a new way to share their outdoor adventures with others who enjoy hunting, fishing and observing the natural world.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is now accepting photos for a new online gallery of images submitted by people enjoying the great outdoors.

“This is a great way for outdoor enthusiasts to share their fishing, hunting and wildlife-watching experiences with others,” said Nate Pamplin, WDFW’s wildlife program director. “We know Washingtonians have some great outdoor photos to share.”

Key subjects for the online gallery include hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing, as well as scenic photos of WDFW wildlife areas. Photos selected for display in the gallery may also be used in other electronic and print publications produced by the department.

Guidelines for photo submissions are included on the department’s new photo webpage at Viewers can find the gallery of photos posted to date at

Pamplin said he would like to use one of those photos for the cover of the department’s 2012 Big Game Hunting Pamphlet.

“This year’s theme is youth hunting,” he said. “We’re hoping to use a photo submitted to our photo gallery of a young hunter with their first deer or elk from the 2010 or 2011 hunting season.”

To be considered for the pamphlet cover, photos must be submitted to WDFW by April 6, Pamphlin said.
