2018 Backcountry Hunters & Anglers Public Lands and Waters Photo Contest

Fall is almost here, and Public Lands Month is upon us! It's time to get outside with family and friends - fishing, hiking, hunting and enjoying the last of the warm weather before the snow flies. 

Fall is also when we're on our public lands and waters, searching for peace and solitude along with harvesting wild game or trying to catch that fish of a lifetime. Access to our public lands and waters is essential for opportunities to further existing traditions or create new ones. 

Backcountry Hunters & Anglers and Orvis have teamed up to give BHA members a chance to showcase your public lands experience and win one of four great prize packages by entering our 8th annual Public Lands and Waters Photo Contest. 

Submit the most picturesque, memorable or entering image capturing your public lands experience anytime between Sept. 1 and Nov. 15. for a chance to win. Check out the prizes and complete contest rules below. 

For maximum exposure and the best chance to win the Peoples Choice award, remember to use the hashtags #backcountryhuntersandanglers #publiclandowner and #orvisflyfishing
