"Hunting season might not begin until mid September, but scouting begins much earlier than that and trail cams have become a big part of the scouting scene," LouisianaSportsman.com's Andy Crawford said. "So we wanted to provide a place for our users to post their photos and compete for monthly prizes."
"All you will have to do to enter the contest is to post a report in the Trail Cam Contest forum, just as you'd post any other report on the site," Crawford said. "So now you don't have to go to another part of the site searching for the contest."
There will be five contest periods: Aug. 1-31, Sept. 1-30, Oct. 1-31, Nov. 1-30 and Dec. 1-31.
At the end of each contest period, a user vote will be held to choose winning photos from among the top images chosen by site administrators.
"This is just a way for us to show our appreciation to our users, so we encourage everyone to join the forum and begin uploading trail-cam photos," Crawford said. "And it's free!"
