Young Hunters: Tell Your Story, Win Prizes!
To celebrate our hunting heritage in Montana, Governor Greg Gianforte has announced the second annual Youth Hunting Story Contest for Montana youth and apprentice hunters ages 10-17. The deadline to enter the contest is a week from today - Monday, November 27, 2023.
To enter the contest, hunters must submit a story of no more than 500 words and a photo from their 2023 hunt. Hunters must be a Montana resident and a licensed hunter or apprentice hunter between the ages of 10-17. Eligible entries include the harvest of any legal game, furbearer animals, or birds in Montana.
The governor will select 10 hunters, five aged 10-13 and five aged 14-17, and announce the winners in mid-December. Winners will be invited to the Capitol to celebrate with the governor and receive their prizes in January of the new year.
Prize partners for the 2023 contest include Sitka, Stone Glacier, Kenetrek Boots, Vista Outdoor, J2 Taxidermy, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, and the Montana Outfitters and Guides Association.
