2016 Big Game Hunting Pamphlet Cover Photo Contest

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is accepting photos for the 2016 Big Game Hunting Pamphlet Cover Photo Contest. This year’s theme is “Finding Inner Strength,” a tribute to hunters with disabilities, in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. This will be a great opportunity to celebrate thousands of Washington hunters – and their hunting companions – who overcome unique challenges every year to find success in the field.

Submit your photos showing these accomplishments, along with a short paragraph describing the scene, and you could be selected to be on the 2016 Big Game Hunting Pamphlet cover.
