Outdoor News & Kinetic Performance Dog Food present the 2017 Huntin’ Buddy Photo Contest


Outdoor News Inc., publisher of locally written fishing and hunting outdoor newspapers in seven Great Lake States, together with Kinetic Performance Dog Food, invite people to submit photos for the annual Huntin’ Buddy Photo Contest.



The annual promotion by Outdoor News encourages bird dog enthusiasts in Minnesota to submit a photo of their hunting dog, and in 2017 – for a chance to win a year’s supply of Kinetic Performance Dog Food. The winning photo will also be crafted into a custom painting of their canine companion by Outdoor News artist, Ron Nelson. The winning photo was on the front cover of the August 11, 2017 edition of Minnesota Outdoor News. Copies will be available at the main entrance at Game Fair, which kicks off August 11th in Anoka, Minn.

Game Fair is an outdoors gathering that brings families together with hunting dog events, shotgunning, archery and outdoor seminars, and the Outdoor News Huntin’ Buddy contest celebrates that pure bond between a hunter and their dog.

This is the fourth year that Kinetic has partnered with Outdoor News in promoting the annual photo contest. Entries are accepted here through July 28.
