Texas Hotshots Photo Contest

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

Modeled 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 month, the poster whose photo receives the most votes (one in each category) receives a special prize from our selection of TF&G apparel and logo merchandise.

At the end of each month, the photo with the most vote will win a Texas Fish and Game Shirt or Knife. On June 29th, the photos that receive the most votes will be awarded Grand Prize, First Prize and Second Prize items. See full rules (tab, above right).
