Leupold has announced the return of Project Hunt, giving one lucky winner the rare opportunity to have his or her hunt filmed by a professional videographer and shared across Leupold’s digital platforms.
The concept for this second contest remains the same: It’s your tag, your hunt, and your story.
“This year we’re back and looking for another incredible story to tell.” said Bruce Pettet, president and chief executive officer of Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “No one is more relentless than the members of the Leupold Core, and we’re asking you to help us prove it. Whether you’re going on the hunt of a lifetime or hunting close to home with your family, it’s time to tell your story.”
Here's what you need to do to enter: Film a two-minute submission video giving judges a compelling reason for wanting your hunt filmed and the basis of your hunt plans. Entries will be judged on their story, plans, originality and on-camera personality. The contest is open to all United States residents over age 18. Your hunt must take place in the United States and take place before March 1, 2023 to be considered.
Leupold chose two winners for the inaugural Project Hunt contest in 2021, Jesse Shiner and Matt Hicks, both of whom will have their stories unfold in upcoming short films in 2022.
“I've been putting in 23 years for a bighorn sheep tag in Arizona. I couldn’t believe when I got drawn for it,” Hicks said. “It was an amazing experience, just a real trip of a lifetime.” Hicks said that Leupold went above and beyond, providing him with gear like his scope, binoculars, spotting scope and tripod.
Selected entrants will also receive a Leupold optics prize package and a one-year GOHUNT Insider membership.
The deadline to enter is June 18, 2022. If you scored the tag of the lifetime, hunt on storied land or otherwise believe your hunt deserves to be enjoyed by the world, apply here. The victor will receive all of the optics necessary to bag their harvest and a photo package.
