You Could Win....

Let's face - there are what seems like a bazillion contests out there related to the outdoors. BUT, how many of us even know about them? Because I have an interesting circle of friends, contacts, associations etc. I get notifications of great many of these contests. I also tend to just stumble upon them while I'm whiling away the evening surfing around looking for interesting outdoor information and reads.

It hit me this morning while I was spending some time over at the Outdoor Blogger Network  why shouldn't I do an entry every week or so with a list of some the more interesting and nifty contest I run across? How does Winning Wednesdays strike you?

Bear in mind - I have no affiliation with any these contests, ( such as being a judge, getting goodies for posting; you know, all of that stuff that keeps the legal beagles busy)  I just like to share interesting things I come across - especially when it involves women or youth in the outdoors. I also like to save time when I'm surfing around and when I find a page with some good links and lists - it's a help to me.

So without further adieu  -Let the inaugural edition of Winning Wednesdays commence! Good luck to all my readers who enter the contests below!
  1. Womens Outdoor News has great caption contest going on right now - The best caption will win a BOGGear tripod, specifically, the CLD Series (Camo Legged Devil) with a rubber-coated U head and the new PCA head (Professional Camera Adapter) for Bog-Pod shooting sticks. Two runners-up will receive hot, fresh-off-the-machine BOGGear ballcaps. Enter as many times as you want. to enter visit The Shoot To Thrill section at the WON and give them your best caption for Tim Flanigan's wonderful photo! 
  2. Take Kids Fly Fishing has a nifty coloring contest going on. The prize list is pretty darn impressive! Impressive enough that I wish I was under 16 and could enter this!
