What's Happening in Southern Utah

Let's start things off by talking about an exiting upcoming annual event:
That's right, Jorgensen's in Richfield is about to kick off their annual coyote contest.  This is a great opportunity to get out and perform a little predator control, as well as participate in a contest where you can win amazing prizes and cash!  Be sure to register soon to save yourself $100 on the entry fee.  The teams are 2 man teams, so find a buddy and get signed up!

We are half way through November, and I'm excited to report that with the recent cold storms we are starting to see ice forming around the edges of the high country lakes.  In the mean time, with the hunts winding down, and ice fishing a few weeks out, check out the dozens of pictures on our Facebook page  We are just 15 days away from closing our "Bucks, Bulls, and Fins" photo contest.  Look under the "contests" tab at the top of the page to enter for a chance to win Vortex binoculars.  Also, stay tuned to the Facebook page for surprise giveaways for great apparel from our sponsors!  In fact, right now you can shoot on over there and "like" photos, the 2 photos with the most likes will win Vortex Optics hats!

Before we share a few of the photos from the contest tonight, I would like to announce something personal that is very exciting.  About 2 weeks ago I was approached by Elk Hunter Magazine to begin blogging for them.  I am very excited about the opportunity, and my first post will appear on the Elk Hunter Magazine blog on Monday.  Don't worry, I am not giving up on this site, and in fact I am hoping that the exposure to Elk Hunter brings us more followers.  I want to thank you all that have joined this site and been so loyal to us over the past year.  You largely made this popular.  Thank you so much for the support, and please visit the Elk Hunter blog, great staff and great information!

Also, be sure to visit our newest partner, i-video wildlife!  Check out their logo in the right sidebar, and visit their site for more great photos, video, and stories from hunting fanatics!  We are excited to have their logo on our site!

Now, check out a few photos from our contest.  I don't envy our judges, this is going to be a hard one to determine!  Thanks to all that have submitted photos to the contest!
