Hey Roksliders! It's time for our 2nd annual Best Sheep Photo contest, sponsored by Kenetrek!
Rokslide member, aklogan, won last year's contest. His winning Dall sheep photo is pictured above. He just received his new Kenetrek Mountain Guide boot this last week. Hope to hear from him on how they're performing soon.
For this year, you can win YOUR CHOICE of any pair of Kenetrek Boots. The contest is similar to our Mule Deer, Elk, and Whitetail contests. This is NOT a biggest sheep contest, but a "best photo" contest. The winning 2018 photo will be judged on the following criteria:
1) WOW Factor. Is it a great photo that grabs the viewer? This takes in lighting, color, uniqueness, etc.
2) Composition- by that I mean the way in which the different parts that make up your photo are arranged- is there too much background, not enough animal? or visa versa? Are the horn tips out of the frame or the hunters head cut off? Or is it a good balance between the sheep, the hunter, the terrain? (the hunter is not required to appear in the photo.)
3) Size of animal. This doesn't mean biggest animal wins, but if #1 and #2 are equal, we'll chose the bigger animal.
4) Must be a photo of a sheep harvested in 2018
So if you kill a sheep in 2018, post up your best photo (one photo per person, per sheep, please) in this thread. Be sure and subscribe at "Thread Tools" top of this post so you're notified when someone posts AND when we announce the winner in December.
All fair-chase harvested North American Wild Sheep taken in 2018 are eligible for entry. Rokslide reserves the right to disqualify any entry for any reason if we think something ain't right!
So get the entries rolling!
