September 2020 Photo of the Month Contest

Postby WapitiTalk1 » 08 31, 2020 •  [Post 1]

The September 2020 Photo Theme is – "That Ain't an Elk”; let's see some pics pertaining to other types of critter hunting (non-elk :-)…..).

1. One photo submission allowed per month, per member (yep, MODs may enter a photo also).
2. Photo must relate to the monthly theme (or risk being disqualified).
3. Do not use photo editing software to enhance your photo. Just post the photo as it was taken with your camera, smart phone, trail cam, etc. You may have to resize some photos so they are accepted by the forum software; remember, photos can only be 800X600 pixels "MAX" for our forum.
4. You may use older photos you have on hand, but, do not submit a photo that has won a previous WT photo contest.
5. Any WT member may enter a photo they have taken or star in.
6. Judging – WT members will vote on monthly photo submissions.
7. Contest period will normally end the last day of the month.
8. Winner must contact WapitiTalk1 via PM and provide mailing address for prize (your prize may be sent directly from a WT sponsor or from RJ).
9. Prizes will vary from month to month.
10. All monthly winners will be automatically entered into the "photo of the year" contest.

The prize for the September 2020 contest is (to be determined).

usually, when I think "that aint an elk", it's a stump about 300 yards away that has the hopes of an elk-like form. then it gets 20 seconds of ambitious binoculars time, followed by .....

"that aint an elk"
"First teach a child to love God,
teach them second to love their family
and third, teach them to hunt and fish,
and by the time they reach their teens, no dope peddler under the sun will ever teach them anything".

I was hoping for a good bear pic, but my time is running out for this month, and smoke ruined my plans yesterday. Hard to glass them up with zero visibility and choking on smoke. So i'll settle for a rooster with Chloe dog.

I hunt therefore I am. I fish therefore I lie.

You would only see this when you are elk hunting. If I had a sheep tag I’d never see that!

Elk are fast, but not as fast as teal!
