Give Us The Bird! Again

Smith_image3_1Spring turkey season 2007 is now a footnote in the history books and while the challenges of the season left some hunters saying, "maybe next year," from what I'm hearing around and about is that many hunters had one awesome season. Well, now it's time to gamble a little more with that good luck and send in your best picture of you with your turkey for a chance to win some cool prizes.

That's right, it's time to clean out the ol' gear closet here at Outdoor Life and visitors to the Strut Zone are the beneficiaries. Submit your best turkey hunting photo for a chance to win a Mossy Oak Elite III turkey vest stuffed with calls from companies like MAD, Primos, Knight & Hale, Preston Pittman, Woods Wise, Hunter's Specialties and others. Second and third place winners will also be named with second place winning a Carry-Lite Pretty Boy Decoy along with a turkey call and the Third Place winner receiving some mouth calls.

Pictured above is last year's winner, young James Smith from North Carolina. Some Strut Zone visitors have already sent their pics in anticipation of the contest. I'll do my best to run as many entrants as I receive, so be sure to send the image along with your name, address, email, and a little info on the hunt as to where you took it, when and how. The bird's measurements are also good to include. Send them to [email protected] or by snail mail to Outdoor Life, c/o Strut Zone Photo Contest, Two Park Avenue, 10th Fl., New York, NY 10016. The deadline is June 30. I'll announce the winners July 9.
