Outdoors Magazine Cover Photo Search Targets Youth Hunters
Colchester, VT –-(AmmoLand.com)- Outdoors Magazine is proud to announce in March it will be unveiling its first issue celebrating youth hunters.
“We all know that kids are the future of our sport,” said James Austin, president of Elk Publishing, “A big part of the issue will be celebrating youth afield and telling their success stories. I don't think it matters how old you are, these stories bring us all back to some of the best memories of our early days in the woods and on the water.”
Kyle Scanlon, editor of Outdoors, is looking for the perfect cover photo to highlight the issue.
“The stories are so good and the topic is so close to our hearts that we need the perfect image to wrap up the package,” said Scanlon. “We are appealing to all of our followers to send us pictures of their hunting or fishing adventures with their children,” he said.
“Any pictures we don't use on the cover may be used in other places in the magazine over the coming months and on our website,” said Scanlon.
If you have a picture, please send it via email to [email protected] Be sure to include the names of the people in the picture and location it was taken. For prints, send via parcel post to: 531 Main St., Colchester, Vt. 05446
Don't think that this issue is just about feel-good stories though. Scanlon is bringing forth an expanded editorial vision.
“Celebrating youth is great, but we also want to keep it real and hit on a couple of other very serious and practical topics you don't hear about elsewhere. These include: The parents role in developing their kids as sportsmen and women, practical advice for gear, dealing with peer pressure in the woods, getting hunters started and the ‘high fence' alternative, and the very real range of emotions that young hunters feel when they kill for the first time,” he said.
