Texas Hotshots Photo Contest

Texas Fish & Game has given “bragging rights” a new take with the Texas Hotshots Online Photo Tournament.

TexasHotShotsModeled after the Texas Hotshots feature in our print magazine, the Texas Hotshots Online Photo Tournament encourages readers to upload their Hunting, Saltwater Fishing, and Freshwater Fishing photos for others to see and “like” with a mouse click. Each week, the poster whose photo receives the most votes (one in each category) receives a prize of their choice of any Texas Fish & Game book plus an occasional “bonus prize” from industry sponsors.

At the end of each quarter, the posters of photos that receive the most votes in the Hunting, Saltwater Fishing, and Freshwater Fishing categories during the quarter each win a grand prize.
