With the deer hunting season winding down in most parts of the state, you may have been lucky to bag a trophy buck. If you did, you could win a trail camera from the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s “Take A Buck, Take A Photo” contest.
The PGC says that if you took a nice buck with rifle or bow, take two shots of the buck with your bow or rifle and submit it to the PGC for their free contest that runs until Dec. 18.
According to the Game Commission, staff will narrow your submitted photos to a group, and contenders will be posted on the agency’s Facebook page, where users will determine the winning photos by posting their “liking” the images. Those submitting the images with the most “likes” for their archery and firearms bucks, will win trail cameras.
The PGC says all submissions must include the first and last name of the hunter and other people in the photo, the hunter’s hometown, and the county where the deer was harvested. Of course, submissions must indicate whether the deer was harvested with a bow or rifle.
Finally, the PGC has the right to use all submitted images. If you need further information check the PGC’s website.
THE SECOND OPENING DAY FOR DEER KICKS OFF

There’s also the Extended Firearms deer season Dec. 26-Jan. 28 for antlerless only deer in Allegheny, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties.
