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:
Prizes will be awarded at the end of the contest to the winners of the photo/narrative competition. All prizes are non-transferable. No substitution may be made except as provided. The winner is responsible for all taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use.
See the official rules.
The 2022 Contest closed February 28, 2023. Prize drawings will be made by March 31, 2023.
The 2023 Take a Friend Hunting Contest will open August 1, 2023 and remain open until February 28, 2024. Prize drawing will be made by March 31, 2024.
