The winning photo will appear on the cover or inside the 2017/2018 Delaware Hunting & Trapping Guide. The hunting guide will be available in July 2017 online, at the DNREC license desk in Dover and from hunting license agents statewide.
Three judges – Division of Fish & Wildlife Director David Saveikis, and local photographers Craig Rhoads and Freda Barrett, both DNREC employees – reviewed all the entries and narrowed them to the top five.
“The Division’s annual hunting photo contest provides a great opportunity for hunters to capture and share their hunting experiences with other hunters,” said Director Saveikis.
