For the fifth year in a row our friends at Sitka Gear are hosting their Diverge photo contest and things are ramping up to a new level. So if you’ve got talent with the camera, pay attention.

Per the official release, “The SITKA Team encourages hunters to share the real things they have seen in the field: the grit, the beauty, the truth and raw emotion that lies at the heart of hunting. It’s a celebration of all who do things differently—those who see things differently—and those who refuse to be conformed to the limited definitions of what it means to be a hunter”

If you’ve got the interest, the eye for uncommon photos, and the talent, here’s what’s at stake this year:

  • 300 Uncommon Image Winners: Special edition SITKA Diverge cap awarded to multiple entrants daily throughout the promotion
  • 30 Jury Selection Winners: GoPro Hero4 Black, $300 in SITKA Gear and a special Edition SITKA Diverge cap
  • 3 Grand Prize Winners: $3,000 in SITKA Gear, all-expenses-paid trip for 2 with VIP access to the SITKA Gear Rendezvous, GoPro Hero4 Black, special edition SITKA Diverge cap and photos published in SITKA Insight Magazine, at and select national hunting publications.

Last year my buddy and video editor for many of our videos, Wade James, was one of the winners – so let’s make it two years in a row that someone from the Wired To Hunt Nation wins the contest! You can submit your photos from now through December 1, so to enter and get more details visit
