    You must be an active member of T.R.'s Tips Hunting Talk Forum / Message Board to enter the contest. Please register and become a member of the forum, then, when you enter your picture, notify us of your forum ID, name, mailing address and e-mail address.

    Pictures should be saved at no less than 2.5"x2.5" and no larger than 4.5"x4.5", and between 200 and 300 dpi, and sent as a .jpg attachment to TRMichels@yahoo.com. Photos not meeting those specifications will not be accepted. We will not fix photos; so be sure to check the size, sharpness, contrast, and color balance before they are sent. Use your photo program (such as Adobe Photo Shop) to touch them up, before sending them.

    State which category you whish to enter the photo in. No one may enter more than one photo per category. But, due to the length of time of the contest, you can send in as many photos as you want, and change which photo you want entered in the contest.

    Please include information on manufacturer and model of camera used, where you like to place your cameras, why you place them there, and how game cameras have helped your hunting experience.

    Photos will be judged on species type, quality and general content (centered subject, color balance, sharpness, background, and pose). Rack size will not determine winners. We are looking for quality photos, not big racks!!!

    Entries must be received by December 31, 2004. Winners will be announced by January 31, 2005.

    T.R. Michels will be using some comments and photos for an article on the use of Game Cameras. Participants agree that all photos entered become the property of T.R.
