2018 Spring Turkey Harvest Photo Contest

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is hosting a photo contest to showcase turkeys harvested this spring in Pennsylvania.


2018 Spring Turkey Harvest Photo Contest images may be submitted from April 21 through June 8, 2018. Submissions should be sent to

Photo submissions must be of wild Pennsylvania turkeys taken lawfully during a 2018 spring turkey season. If the turkey has been moved, the harvest tag should be visible and attached to the turkey's leg. All submissions must include the first and last name of the hunter and other people in the photo, hunter’s hometown, and the county where the turkey was harvested. Submissions must also indicate whether the turkey was harvested by a mentored youth or mentored adult, junior license holder, or adult license holder.

The Game Commission has the right to use all submitted images.


Game Commission will select a group of “contending” photos shortly after June 8. Once assembled, these contending photos will be placed on the Game Commission’s Facebook page in two photo albums:  one for a Juniors and Mentored Youth category, and one for an Adult category. Facebook users will determine the winning photos by “liking” the images. A winner will be selected for each category. Each winner will be awarded an engraved box call from Top Calls in Renovo, Pa. 

The contest is not sponsored, endorsed or administered by Facebook. Game Commission employees are not eligible to participate.
