Presenting the winning hunting, fishing, family & wildlife shots from Outdoor Canada’s 7th annual photo contest
HUNTING: 2ND PLACE
PHOTOGRAPHER: Andy Essig
WHERE: Wasaga Beach, Ontario
WHEN: December 2017
DETAILS: Coyote hunter Mike Cogswell and his brother-in-law Andy Essig had been hiking along a ridgeline bordering a farm field when they stopped and Essig snapped this frosty photo of him. “We got caught in a snowstorm,” Cogswell says. “Rather than pack out, we hunkered down and just enjoyed the day.” An avid multispecies hunter and angler, he says coyotes have slowly become one of his favourites animals to hunt.
