It’s time once again. The 3rd annual Show Us Your Rack deer hunter’s photo contest brought to you by IDR and 180 Outdoors officially begins today. And the prize packs are huge. Want proof? The Grand Prize Pack includes a predator hunt exclusively with the guys of 180 Outdoors! They and their sponsors have outdone themselves this year.

Week 1 is on! Please submit photos to be considered for the Week 1 Prize Pack (and the big daddy… Grand Prize Pack) by Wednesday, Nov. 22 at 5 p.m. Read on to learn how.

Following are the rules and regs for the contest and a complete breakdown of the weekly prize packs up for grabs including the big daddy… the Grand Prize Pack.

Each week’s photos will be judged by Matt Wonser and Devin Windsor, owners of 180 Outdoors (as seen on the Pursuit Channel and the Sportsman Channel), and professional outfitters.

Remember, they aren’t necessarily looking for the biggest rack to win. All photos, doe or buck, past or present, will be judged and considered. Creativity, size of the smile of a young hunter, photo background, or other intangible factors may come into play.

Once the weekly winner is selected, that week’s prize pack will be awarded to the hunter, and the Reporter Outdoors will feature the winning photo, a brief bio of the hunter, and some insight from Wonser and Windsor as to why the photo made the cut in the following Sunday edition.

Good luck, be safe, and stay tuned to the pages of the Reporter Outdoors for the announcement of the weekly winners.

 

Rules & Regs:

• Must be 18 or over to submit photos. Parents may submit photos for their young hunters.

• Photos must be submitted by 5 p.m. each Wednesday to be considered for that’s week’s Prize Pack. Weekly winners will be announced in the following Sunday’s edition of the Reporter Outdoors.

• All deer hunting photos, past or present, will be considered.

• You may submit photos via email to myrack@indydailyreporter.com. Please include name, age, where the hunter is from, and any other information you feel may influence the judge’s decision.

• You may also bring them by our office at 320 N. 6th, and we’ll scan them for you, or you can post them on our Facebook page at facebook.com/indydailyreporter. If submitting via Facebook, please tag with “Show Us Your Rack”, and include the information noted above.

• The winner of the Grand Prize Pack will be selected from all weekly photo submissions as the over-all winner.
