Welcome to Generation Wild

If you're reading this, there's a good chance you can agree with one—or all—of the following: You're the one at school who rises at the crack of dawn to hunt turkeys before first period begins. You're the one who puts off homework to fish for brown trout as soon as school lets out. You're the one who'd rather hunt big bucks than play Big Buck Hunter. With me so far? Good. Because, whether you know it or not, you're also one of many. Which is exactly why we created Generation Wild—an online community for young hunters, anglers, and outdoorsmen. In order for this community to really come together, we're gonna need your help. First, we're on the lookout for young gear testers. Translation: we send you awesome new gear, you test it out and then tell us what you think. Not a bad day's work, right? Click here to learn how you can test cool new gear. One of our first tasks is to assemble a team of four Generation Wild Junior Pro Staffers. Just what comes with this title? For starters you'll get to blog here alongside me. You'll also receive new camera and video equipment, which you'll use to post footage on the website. If that's not enough, you'll also get the royal treatment from Realtree—suited from head to toe in the best camo garb available. Plus, you and the other pro staffers will join a Field & Stream editor and members from Realtree for a turkey hunt—all expenses paid! But to get this gig, you've got to convince us why you're the right person for the job. Here's how. What else can you expect to find at Generationwild.com? Let's start with this blog. This is the first of many posts. We'll talk hunting. We'll talk fishing. We'll talk about the news and issues that impact your time in the outdoors. And don't be shy. If there's a topic you want to discuss, just bring it up in the comments section. There's no need to check your ego at the door here, either. If you've got cool photos or videos from your hunting and fishing trips, we want to see them. Upload your best clips from you most recent hunt, or show us your most killer grip-and-grin photos. And feel free to comment on the latest pics and videos of your fellow sportsmen. Of course, this is just a small sampling of what'll be going on at Generationwild.com. Be sure to visit every day for new stories, photos, videos, and giveaways. In the meantime, take a look around the site and click here to join Generation Wild.
