Photo contest - April

Post by Rob » Sun Mar 08, 2009 12:41 pm

So, we have been running a monthly picture contest with each month's winner receiving their choice of a $25 Cabela's gift card or a 1 year Premier subscription to GDF. There is also a possibility that their photos may appear in a calendar to benefit GDF if we can work out the details.

So far, here are the monthly winners:
January:
Image

February:
Image

March:
Image

Please, keep posting all of your wonderful shots. And rest assured, the submissions from previous months will remain under consideration going forward. Please post your new shots for April here. Deadline will be March 31st (more or less).

Also, if anyone has a suggestion for discussing the calendar idea with GDF, please PM me.

Thanks,
Rob

Sorry about the giant beeper collar but as a starving college kid $20 on e-bay seemed about right and without it I would never find her.

Counterbalancing all the pup photos--great shots, gdog's in particular--here's a 12-year-old doing what she's done, oh, a couple thousand times before.

This was taken at the beach near my house. The pups like chasing pelicans.

I took this photo of a friend's dog, Bart. Bart lost a leg to osteosarcoma last summer. Since then, he's finished his SH, earned 3 MH legs, (oh, the irony) a couple field trial placements - and won a halloween costume contest dressed as a pirate, complete with hook. His owner was naturally dressed up as his wench. :)

Ridge-Point Ruff-nTuff (left) and Ridge-Point Duke of Envy (right) showing thier stuff on the last weekend of Chukar season here in Oregon. The bird numbers were way down this year, so my Father decided to shoulder his shotgun and break out the camera. These two pups really worked hard this season and were rewarded for thier efforts. Duke is owned by Volraider and hunted this season with me in Oregon.
