Extreme Huntress Contest 2013: All Entrants to Receive Otis Tactical Gun Cleaning Kit
(The Outdoorwire.com) October 11, 2012 (Kalispell, Mont.)- The most popular contest for women hunters is gearing up for its biggest year ever. This year the winner of the Extreme Huntress Contest will go on an all-expenses-paid trip to hunt brown bear, guided by Extreme Huntress 2010 and Eye of the Hunter™ co-host, Rebecca Francis. The hunt, which is offered by Bill Stevenson and Alaska Outfitters, will be filmed for and episode of Eye of the Hunter, which airs every Sunday at 7am EST on NBC Sports.
This year, there is a significant change to the scoring system for the Extreme Huntress Contest (http://tahoefilms.com/contests/extreme-huntress-contest-2/). The winner of the online vote doesn't automatically win the contest; but rather, the score from the five judges will account for 50 percent of the score and the online vote will contribute the remaining 50 percent of the score.
Also new this year, all women who enter the Extreme Huntress Contest will receive a super awesome Tactical Gun Cleaning Kit from Otis Technology, a $59 value, and one year of Total Access Membership to Tahoe Films digital download outdoor video library, a $30 value, plus bonus members-only discounts from Tahoe Films' sponsors.
But don't say we didn't warn you: "Ladies, before you even consider entering this contest, you need to ask yourself if you have what it takes to confront an Alaskan brown bear," stressed licensed guide and co-host Rebecca Francis. "Brown bear hunting is not easy. It is about as EXTREME as it gets."
Women wishing to enter the contest will need to write a short essay on why they are the most hardcore woman huntress in the world and why they should be named Extreme Huntress 2013.
Essays will be accepted from August 1 through October 25th, 2012. Shortly thereafter, a panel of celebrity judges will score the essays and choose the top ten finalists. Then beginning November 1st and continuing through December, the public will have a chance to choose their favorite finalist via an online public vote. The winner will be announced at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
Entrants will need to email their 500 word essay as a Word doc or as a PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org. Entrants should also attach up to two digital photographs, mailed as low-resolution jpgs, of themselves hunting.
