‘Show us your Deer’ replaces ‘Big Buck’
From staff reports
For many years, The Sentinel’s “Big Buck” contest was looked forward to by area hunters and readers alike. Starting in 2021, The Sentinel has adjusted its annual photo contest to allow for more area hunters to participate and show off the deer they harvested. The adjusted contest, “Show Us Your Deer” will not have a measurement contest and does not require hunters to bring their kill to The Sentinel. Now, hunters can simply upload a photo of either a buck or doe they take to our website with a brief description. All photos submitted will be entered in a drawing for some great prizes, including a $150 gift certificate from Dan Pierce Outdoor Shop, Lewistown.
Photos should be of a deer taken in the 2021 fall season. All approved photos will be viewable on our online gallery and selected photos will be published in our “Show Us Your Deer” special edition on Dec. 17. To access the online upload page, look for the button at lewistownsentinel.com or go to https://lewistownsentinel.secondstreetapp.com/Show-Us-Your-Deer/ to submit a photo or view the photo gallery. For those who may not have access to a computer or smart phone to upload a photo, they may call The Sentinel weekdays at 717-248-6741 to be sure someone is available to take a photo at The Sentinel building in Pleasant Acres. Photo entry deadline is Dec. 12.
