Okay ladies, it's your turn to show the guys how it's done! With archery over and shotgun season now open, many hunters take to the woods hoping to tag the big one. It turns out there has been a growing number of female hunters, and the DEC has just announced something special...

The New York State DEC announced a new photo contest, and it's just for the ladies! According to www.newyorkupstate.com, the fastest growing segment of adult hunters are women, and for that, a contest to see not only the biggest tags, but also to see photos during the hunt, preparing for the hunt, and even just out in the woods with family.

DEC commissioner Basil Seggos had this to say about the contest:

"Women are the fastest growing segment of adult hunters and DEC is excited to provide a forum to share their experiences with others interested in hunting and outdoor recreation in New York State"

What do the winning entries get? They will be featured in next year's New York State Hunting and Trapping Regulations Guide, and could even appear in a future issue of the Conservationist magazine, be seen on social media posts, the DEC website, and other outreach platforms.

The deadline for contest entries is Dec. 31, 2018, so get those pics in now! Women who hunt in New York State can share their photos via the DEC social media Dropbox at socialmedia@dec.ny.gov.
