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 "Likes" (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 "Likes" in each of the three categories (Hunting, Freshwater, and Saltwater) will win a prize. On or around the 29th of each month, the photos that receive the most "Likes" will be awarded prize items. See full rules (tab, above right).
