Colorado Parks and Wildlife has opened its Take a Friend Hunting contest, which offers prizes for multiple winners.
As part of the competition, experienced hunters are encouraged to take a novice out into the wild and submit a photo and a brief story about the experience. Submissions will be judged on their “ability to inspire,” according to a Parks and Wildlife press release.
To be eligible, mentors must be at least 18 years old at the time of registration, must hold a valid 2022 Colorado hunting license, and must have held a license at least three of the last five years. Novice hunters must also be 18 or older at the time of registration and hold a valid 2022 Colorado hunting license. They must also not have had a license before 2022, have had a license only in 2021 or not having had a hunting license for the last five consecutive years.
Prizes include turkey calls, gun cleaning kits, and waterfowl bags, among other items. Interested persons can fill out a form to participate in the competition at CPW.State.CO.US and registration will remain open until February 28, 2023.
