DOVER, Del. -( DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife today announced the winning entries in the 2016/17 Delaware Hunting Photo Contest.

First place was awarded to Bo Wilkinson of Dagsboro for “Couples Retreat,” featuring his friend Morgan Anton after a successful waterfowl hunt on the Indian River.

The second place winner was “Opening Day Calls,” taken by H. Joe Gannon III of Felton, showing his son Quade in a pond near Harrington.

Entries receiving honorable mention were:

  • “Waiting Patiently,” by Barbara Greer of Middletown, featuring her yellow Labrador retriever Riley in Middletown.
  • “Catching Zs,” by Mari-Carmen Rupp of Dover, featuring her son Xander in the Little Creek Wildlife Area Impoundments.
  • “Best Friends,” by David Laux of Laurel, featuring his son Owen and Maggie the Golden retriever in the Nanticoke Wildlife Area.

The winning photo will appear on the cover or inside the 2017/2018 Delaware Hunting & Trapping Guide. The hunting guide will be available in July 2017 online, at the DNREC license desk in Dover and from hunting license agents statewide.

Three judges – Division of Fish & Wildlife Director David Saveikis, and local photographers Craig Rhoads and Freda Barrett, both DNREC employees – reviewed all the entries and narrowed them to the top five.

“The Division’s annual hunting photo contest provides a great opportunity for hunters to capture and share their hunting experiences with other hunters,” said Director Saveikis.
