Despite the challenges that have arisen in this pandemic year, it appears that our readers did not let the COVID-19 virus prevent them from still leading full and adventurous outdoor lives. At least, that’s how it appears from the hundreds of awesome photos that we received in our annual photo contest. It’s always a pleasure and an honour to be able to see the adventures that you catch on film and share with us, and always hard to only choose 12 winners. And that’s why we also pick 12 honourable mentions, too. 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 2021 issue, on newsstands June 21.

Photographer’s description: I managed to get of my girlfriend with her first walleye. It was a beautiful evening with a perfectly timed sunset. The smile says it all!
