“From Field to Feast” is the subject of WDFW’s annual hunting regs cover contest.

It’s a three-part photo assignment, according to an email sent out by the agency this morning, and as you might expect it involves an image of your kill in the field and a pic of its meat on your plate.

The third element is the recipe you used to create the dish.

“While hunters go out in the field for different reasons, we know that many of you hunt as a way to put food on the family table. The complete hunting experience, from field to feast, brings friends and families together far beyond the initial harvest,” says WDFW.

Indeed, whether it’s sea salt-and-rosemary-rubbed venison backstrap, deer jerky, elk larb (check out the October issue’s Chef in the Wild column!) or the ridiculously delicious garlic buck heart John made at Hunting Camp last October, sharing the bounty of Washington’s woods and marshes is what it’s all about.

Past years’ contest themes include hunting camp, passing the tradition on, backcountry, inner strength and others.

WDFW says it’s looking for high-resolution images and short paragraphs providing details about each photo as well as include the recipe.

Send yours to photocontest@dfw.wa.gov. Deadline to enter is March 1, 2019.

The winning entry will appear on 2019’s pamphlet while others may appear on the agency’s social media accounts, according to WDFW.
