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.
