Take a Friend Hunting for a shot at great prizes

Colorado Parks and Wildlife, along with our hunting partners, is encouraging hunters to take a friend into the field. As a reward for taking time to teach a new hunter, CPW has created a contest for mentors who pass on their knowledge. Take a novice hunter out and be entered to win some great prizes by submitting a photograph and brief story about your experience. Submissions will be judged by their ability to inspire.

To be eligible to enter:

  • Mentor and mentee must be at least 18 years of age at the time they submit an entry.
  • Contest participants must follow all applicable Colorado hunting regulations.
  • Mentor must have hunted three years between 2014 - 2018.
  • Mentee hasn’t hunted since 2014, or only hunted in 2018.
  • Mentor must work with mentee on at least three occasions (shown below) in Colorado, one of which must be a hunt.
    • Scouting/navigation skills, purchasing hunting gear
    • Sight in/shooting/handling with firearm/bow
    • Processing, preserving, cooking wild game
