If you have followed us here at Hunt Addicts for very long, you know we put on a hunting photo contest every fall. This year’s contest is bigger and better than ever. In order to streamline the process, we’re using Woobox to run our contest this year which makes it very easy to integrate with our partner facebook and instagram pages and followers as well as those of us who don’t spend time on facebook or instagram or twitter, etc.
This year we’ve partnered once again with Johnson’s Non-Typical Taxidermy to giveaway a free shoulder mount. We’ve also partnered with Vortex Optics to give away a Diamondback HP 3-12×42 riflescope, On X Maps for a GPS chip, Earned Media for one year subscription to their magazine and prize drawing with EARNED – the DIY Journal, Elusive Hunting gear for a pair of Salomon Speedcross 3 shoes, and of course our usual swag from HuntAddicts.com!

We’ve introduced a great new way to win and earn free gear on our online forum. If you already participate in forums, or want a great way to learn and interact with fellow hunters, come over and sign up and spend some time each week posting and reading ours. We’re the only hunting forum I know of that has incentives to post. There’s two ways to win – the first is simple, when you hit 50 posts we’ll send you a free decal, at 500 posts a free hat and at 1000 posts a free t-shirt. The 2nd way to win is with our new “Hunt Points” feature.
Here’s how and what you can win! “Hunt Points” is a new feature added to our forum.
After you login you can see a small link at the top of the forum next to the FAQ and UCP links. This takes you to the Hunt Points Control Panel. There is a tab that will show the upcoming drawing. As you post you earn a “Hunt Point” for each post or reply you make – you cash in these points for “tickets.” 10 hunt points buys 1 ticket.
This month we are giving away Wac’em Triton broadheads. These are my favorite broadhead and what I personally shoot. The drawing will be held May 31, 2013 at 11:30 MST. All new registrars receive 50 hunt points just for signing up! Good Luck!
Thanks again to all of those who sent in their photos from 2012! We had a hard time choosing the winners – but finally got it done with the help of our judges. We’d also like to thank our sponsors – without them we’d just have a collection of photos and no prizes to give out…
Nielson Productions Taxidermy, Timberline Creations, Geigerrig, Wac’em Broadheads, and Quick Draw Decals!
Here are our winners:
Winners will be notified by email…

Last year’s photo contest was a big success, so of course we’re putting it on again this season. Be sure to send in your photos from 2012. We aren’t judging inches, but rather our favorites — whether its wildlife in the wild, scenery pics, or a trophy shot with your buck, bull, doe, cow, ram, etc.
Here’s a few entries from 2011! We’re looking forward to seeing your pics – Good Luck out there!t the official rules posted up within the next few days, along with the prizes for the winners. I can tell you that we are giving away another free shoulder mount from Nielson Productions Taxidermy!
[singlepic id=225 w=320 h=240 float=right]Thanks to two of our great sponsors (Nielson Productions Taxidermy and Golden Valley Meat Snacks) our contest for 2011 was a huge success. We had a lot of great entries — here are the winners: (The winners were chosen by a panel of judges in early February):
Travis long went home with the grand prize – a free shoulder mount from NP Taxidermy, some jerky, and some huntaddicts swag. We felt this photo really portrayed the DIY hunter as many of us have been in similar situations. Thanks Travis! (Photo on right)
Initially we were only going to pick a couple of runner ups, but because we had so many great entries we picked six. Each of our runner ups get some Golden Valley Meat Snacks Jerky and HuntAddicts premium window decals. Thanks for all of your entries. Almost every judge commented on how difficult it was to judge this contest.
Keep in mind that we are doing this again for 2012. Nielson Productions Taxidermy is gracious enough to donate another mount, and we’ll be adding a few additional prizes this year as well! So keep your cameras handy this season. Happy Hunting!
Here are all of the winning photos:
I’m excited to spread the word on our latest sponsor – Golden Valley Natural Meat Snacks. These guys have been in the jerky business for a long time and we’re excited to team up with them and provide their products to our contest winners. Check them out at: www.GoldenValleyNatural.com
You’ve probably heard about our contest that is going on this year – I’ve posted the final rules under the contests section of the site. We’re ending the contest on January 15th – so those of you who are taking photos at the end of the year still have time to get them in. The winners will be picked by Feb. 1, 2012. Thanks to NPTaxidermy.com the grand prize winner will receive taxidery services for a free shoulder mount. These guys do a good job on their mounts and I have used them personally. 3 others will be chosen as honorable mentions and recieve a bag of Golden Valley Natural beef jerky and a huntaddicts.com window decal. So get your photos sent in – the only rule is they need to be taken in the 2011 calendar year!
Speaking of winners – this photo comes in as our weekly fix winner. Seth took this unique buck on the Vernon unit in Utah with his smokepole!
