As one of our most popular contests, the annual duck calling contest is a great way to test out those developing vocal chords to find the best water fowl! Jump right in and prepare for a loud and fun time.
Is your child a budding artist ready to make their first (or not so first) decoy? Have them sign up for the decoy carving contest for a fun time painting, carving, and working with wood! Puddle Ducks, Diver Ducks, Geese, and Confidence decoys will be the acceptable decoys for this competition. All decoy entries must be submitted prior to the event or brought to the event and registered by 10 am.
Have you ever wanted to take that perfect picture of your last catch but didn’t know where to start? This is your child’s opportunity to learn a thing or two about photography. Entries must be printed photo format, no smaller than 4×6 and no larger than 8×10. Photos must be of some form of wildlife, natural living plant, or outdoor natural scene.
“My kids and I participate every year, they always have a blast. I would definitely recommend this event for anyone looking to spend time with loved ones while teaching them a thing or two about nature, especially considering this past year.”
