It’s over. That’s right, The Strut Zone has received its final entries for the “Give Us The Bird” photo contest supported by Carry-Lite, Hunter’s Specialties, Knight & Hale, Quaker Boy, Primos, Woodhaven Custom Calls and Woods Wise.

The deadline officially arrived at midnight last night and about a dozen hunters got their entries in during the waning hours. The final photos will run through the rest of this week and five winners will be announced on Monday, July 17, including one grand prize winner.

Thanks to our sponsors and thanks to everyone who submitted photos for the contest. It’s been fun seeing and sharing your pictures and stories. Stay tuned this fall and into next spring as we look to introduce bigger and better contests.

In the meantime, I plan to get back on a rigorous schedule of tips (both written and in video), hunter profiles, gear reviews and news related to turkey hunting. Hatch reports and sightings are starting to roll in and fall seasons will be here before we know it.

Stay posted.
