Sportsman Channel Hunters Writing Contest: WINNERS!

First off, I wanted to thank the Sportsman Channel and especially Michelle Scheuermann for bringing this amazing opportunity to the OBN.

It’s been fun reading all the submissions knowing that the Sportsman Channel was reading them as well. The prizes just added to the WOW factor.

I am SO GLAD I didn’t have to pick the winners out that amazing bunch of writers. Just saying (with a solid whew)…

Thankfully the panel of judges from the Sportsman Channel had the heavy task of picking winners and I get the easy (and exciting) job of announcing the news.

A note from Michelle: “If you read all 26 entries, these three posts really set themselves apart with the storytelling aspect. Its is very difficult to SHOW and not TELL a story when writing. I struggle with it constantly. But these three writers took the time to set the scene, craft the outline and bring the reader in as if we were there with them.”

So here we go:

The Grand Prize Writing Submission is:

The Hindu Hunter
Sahil who writes Manual of a Man

Congrats to you Sahil! You have won a $200 dollar gift card to Cabela’s from the Sportsman Channel!!

The Runner up Second Prize Writing Submission is:

The Drainage Ditch of Dreams
by Al who writes the blog The SoCal Bowhunter

Great job Al, you may look forward to receiving a $50 dollar gift card to Cabela’s from the Sportsman Channel!

And A Bonus Honorable Mention goes out to:

Tracking Dad’s Deer
by Matt of the Fishing Poet 

Well done Matt. And for you….a mystery surprise is headed your direction.
