Submit hunt stories and photos get free gear 2017

You read that title right, share your photos and HUNT stories with us — get free gear. It's that easy. 2016 was a phenomenal year for our INSIDER members. Your success is what we aim for and to give back, we are once again doing a Submit and Get contest for 2017.

Grand prize

Win a Browning X Bolt rifle and Leupold scope

All submissions give you a chance to win a Browning X-Bolt rifle in the caliber of your choice topped with a Leupold VX-3i LRP riflescope. See details below.

How does this work?

It’s simple; share your photos and HUNT stories with us, get free gear. There are two ways to win. 

#1 - Submit hat photos

Send us a fullsize image of you with your goHUNT hat in the field and you'll get one entry toward the rifle giveaway. Also, if we use it, we’ll send you another hat for FREE. Harvest photos are preferred, but they can be anything from shed hunting, scouting, shooting your bow/rifle, and glassing. We love seeing creative shots and everything in-between.

#2 - Submit HUNT stories

Everyone's experienced memorable hunting trips or has great hunts planned for 2017 and we’d love for you to share your hunt with us. So if you’re feeling aggressive, you can submit a HUNT story with 10-20 photos. HUNT stories can be from any year, so if you have a hunt within the past few years, we'd still love to run your story. When you submit a HUNT story you'll get two entries toward winning the grand prize, as a bonus, if you submit a HUNT story with a goHUNT hat in the harvest photo, you'll get five entries!

Also, if we use your HUNT story, you'll receive a gift card worth $100 to the goHUNT Gear Shop.

See HUNT story submission guidelines here.

You can see who won the 2016 contest here.

Simply put:

  • Submit a goHUNT hat photo you get 1 entry
  • Submit a HUNT story and you get 2 entries
  • Submit a HUNT story with a goHUNT hat in the harvest photo and you get 5 entries

New for this year: we are extending the contest to March 31, 2018 to give everyone more time for their stories. Once the deadline is reached, we will randomly draw from the list of entries. The more entries you have, the better chance you have of winning. The person drawn will win the grand prize package.

All submissions can be sent to Brady Miller,

Giveaway rules can be found here.

Hey Gary. You should have gotten a free hat when you joined INSIDER, but if you didn't, we'd be glad to hook you up with a free one. Just email me at: with the hat of your choice, size and mailing address and we'll get one sent your way. This type of giveaway is going to be a yearly thing, so you can still submit HUNT stories without a hat for the giveaway this year, then when the 2018 fall season rolls around you'd be ready with a fresh hat. Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year! Hard to believe the application season is finally here.

So, I have to buy a hat or a shirt to get more entries? Seriously?

Hey Gil. 1,500 words or less is totally fine. Normally the more photos the less text you'll need. You can check out more guidelines here:

Hope you have a great weekend!
