Turkey Hunting photo

Attention young hunters (that is, those of you who’re 15 to 18 years old): Any interest in an all-expenses-paid turkey hunt in upstate New York next spring? Yep, that’s what we thought. Well, here’s your chance.

One lucky Generation Wild reader will get to join a Field & Stream editor for a guided spring turkey hunt in 2011. You can click here to enter. But first, here’s the gist of the contest:

For starters, you’ll need to tell us a bit about your hunting experience. We also want to see your best hunting photo–one of you with a gobbler, a whitetail, or any other critter after a successful hunt. And if you’ve got one, upload a hunting video that you filmed and edited on your own or with some friends. (The video isn’t a requirement for the contest, but let’s just say that those who include one will score some bonus points during the judging process.)

Finally, you’ve got to sell us on why you should win this contest with a good essay. In 300 words or less (no longer, we mean it!), tell us the story of “The Greatest Gobbler Hunt of My Life.” The essay could be about a turkey you shot, or one that got away. Just make it a really good story–one that will entertain us, and the readers of the Generation Wild blog, because that’s where we’ll publish the winning entry.

The deadline to enter the contest is on February 15, 2011. We’ll announce the winner in March 2011. Good luck!
