North American Hunting Club, the premier community for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts, is proud to announce the recipients of the 2012 Big Game Awards: the President’s Award and the One Shot Award. The Big Game Awards are open to all NAHC members who have taken North American game animals during a 2011 fair chase hunt.

“We are proud to annually present these highly regarded awards to two of our Club members,” said Luke Hartle, Sr. Editor of North American Hunter magazine. “It gets increasingly difficult every year to sort through the hundreds of entrants and choose a winner, but we always encourage our members to apply for every contest we host.”

Rebecca Warren, a North American Hunting Club Trophy Life Member, won the President’s Award with her Idaho archery elk hunt story. The President’s Award is the highest NAHC honor. In addition to being a Top 10 Winner, the winning story is published in August issue of North American Hunter. The winner is selected on the quality of the story, photos and game.

Eric Payne, a North American Hunting Club Life Member, won the One Shot Kill Award with his bear hunt in Manitoba, Canada with a compound bow. Any animal taken with a single shot qualifies for the One Shot Kill Award.

The magazine also recognizes the Top 10 Winners: Dave Altman, Dennis Clark, Aaron Koehn, Joe Lake, Mike McAllister, Phillip Ryan, Randy Smith, Larry Waldron, Rebecca Warren and Steven Winiecki
