Wapiti Talk Photo of the Month Contest; FEB 18; Winner!

Postby WapitiTalk1 » 02 08, 2018 •  [Post 1]

Sorry, getting this one started a bit late in the month.

The February 2018 Photo Theme is – "Trees, Rocks, Brush, and Hills". Yep, let's see some photos that show some elk woods landscapes ;).

Rules:

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.
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.

* At the end of the year, all monthly contest winners will be automatically entered into a Photo of the Year Contest.

The prize for this month's contest will be (to be determined).

This year was very dry and the ranchers blocked hunting for fear of fires so we were forced onto public land - as a result, didn't even draw the bow back. However the experience was great as always.

Trees check
Rocks check
Brush check
Hills check

Out in Idaho Lava flow the Juniper was used for shade, and the nearby sagebrush was rubbed. All out on a lava dome, more interesting as a location than anything.

I have been remiss in my duties and did not announce the FEB 18 winner in a timely manner. Sorry folks, not sure what happened. At any rate, photo number 3 (Indian Summer) received the most votes. I'll get a goodie sent his way. As always, thanks to all our members for submitting photos, for voting, and for being members on our super cool and awesome hunting forum! RJ

Congratulations to Indian Summer. I had forgotten about the contest, so this is a nice surprise.
