Black Belt Adventures Announces Big Buck Photo Contest Winners | Community Spirit
Montgomery, Ala. — The winners for the Alabama Black Belt Adventures Big Buck Photo Contest have been announced.
The organization, a public-private partnership that promotes outdoor recreation and tourism in Alabama’s Black Belt, sponsored a “big buck” photo contest for deer harvested in the 23-county region.
Winners have been chosen in three categories -- youth typical (up to 12 years old), youth typical (ages 13-18) and adult typical. Photos were posted on Facebook, and three finalists were determined for each category based on the highest number of “likes” received. Sports journalists then picked the winners.
The winners were:
Youth typical (up to 12 years old): Clark Bain of Carrollton. Other finalists in this category were Lyman Thomas Ramsey and Ethan Duncan.
Youth typical (ages 13-18): Danner Butler of Mobile. Other finalists in this category were Tanner Cox and Noah Hadley.
Adult typical: Wes Cumbie of Auburn. Other finalists in this category were Michael Lightcap and Wesley Rutledge.
Each winner in the three categories will receive a $100 gift card to Bass Pro Shops.
All the finalists and entries demonstrate why hunting in Alabama's Black Belt is so popular.
“Black Belt counties make up about a third of Alabama, but they account for more than half of the total hunting and fishing dollars spent in the state,” said Pam Swanner, project director at Alabama Black Belt Adventures. “For us, deer season is a classic win-win – good for hunters, good for the Black Belt. We encourage people to spend time and money in Alabama’s prime hunting grounds.”
