Share Your Story and Win….Something.
Deer season is over. It’s awful, just awful. I can barely focus on anything I’m supposed to be focusing on. I still have Christmas presents to buy and a snow blower that needs fixing. I was too busy during deer season to get either one of those things done, and now I’m too depressed.
The outlook is bleak. February is a horrible month and March isn’t much better. I question why those months even exist, but so far I haven’t received a decent answer. The way I see it, I can sit in my house and stare longingly outside at the desolate hillsides daydreaming of better times OR I can help you share your exciting story from last fall to help bridge the gap. Who knows, maybe you’ll even win something…
A little while ago I attempted to contact one of those big outdoor companies to see if they would sponsor a contest. Their website is pretty clear that they wouldn’t, but I thought “What the heck? What have I got to lose?”
So far I haven’t heard back despite my desperate pleas for a freebie and descriptions of how awful winter is around here. The lack of response is strange because I even attached a picture of my face with the inquiry. I am not sure why except that there was a requirement to attach something with the letter, and I had nothing else to attach. I’m beginning to think that might have scared them off.
Contests can be fun, but are they fun even without a prize? No, they aren’t. Maybe I’ll head out to the shop and build a trophy out of wood as the prize.
Enough of that. Here are the rules for the contest.
- Submit a picture from last fall.
- Write a short story with it (minimum 150 words which is approximately 1/3 the length of this post).
The story and picture do not have to be from a successful hunt but can be from any great memory made last fall. I will then post the story and picture on the blog and hold a final vote for the winner.
Sound fun? You think of a story you want to submit, and I’ll keep working on that prize…
Merry Christmas Everyone,
