These 12 awesome fishing, hunting, family and wildlife photos will inspire you to get outside (and bring your camera)


Picking the winners in each of the four categories of our annual photo contest is no easy feat. Every year, we get hundreds, if not thousands, of entries and look at every single one. There’s always more that catch our eyes than we can pick as winners, so we also make a collection of honourable mentions. In no particular order, here are the photos that made our runners-up list from all the four categories: Fishing, Hunting, Family and Wildlife & Wild Places.

To see the winning photos, pick up a copy of our July/August 2019 issue, on newsstands June 24.
