Winner to go on Five-Day African Hunt to Namibia and Receive Unprecedented Gear Package From Top Industry Sponsors
It’s time! Próis has announced its 2014 Próis Awards contest is officially open for submissions. The hunting and field apparel company is inviting all dedicated female hunters to enter their personal stories about hunting and conservation to win big, really big. This year’s winner will go on a two-species hunt in Namibia, Africa with Mogwadiri Safaris in 2016. So get moving and put pen to paper – or fingertips to keyboard – and wow us with your story!
“The Próis Awards are all about celebrating and recognizing the most dedicated female hunters around,” said Kirstie Pike, CEO of Próis Hunting & Field Apparel. “The number of female hunters is growing and we are pumped to see this evidenced by the increasing number of entries we receive year after year.”
We can’t wait to see and hear about your adventures, about the moose that was “this big,” and the time you trekked through snow “this deep.” Judges want to see guts, determination and passion for the hunt. They are also looking for involvement in conservation and management, efforts to promote our hunting heritage and community outreach efforts.
Winning is awesome, and here’s why: The winner will be whisked off to Las Vegas to accept the Próis Award in front of her industry peers at the 2015 SHOT Show in January. Then in addition to the trip to Africa, Próis will fully outfit the winner with the latest in hunting clothes, gear and accessories from top equipment manufacturers sponsoring the contest.
Submissions for the annual contest to name the most committed female hunter of the year are accepted until midnight on October 18, 2014.
