The annual promotion by Outdoor News encourages bird dog enthusiasts in Minnesota to submit a photo of their hunting dog, and in 2019 – 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 showcased on the cover of the August 9, 2019 edition of Minnesota Outdoor News. Copies were available at the main entrance at Game Fair, which kicked off August 9th in Anoka, Minnesota and runs a second weekend August 16-18th.

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 sixth year that Kinetic has partnered with Outdoor News in promoting the annual photo contest.

 Congratulations to Mark Morrison, the 2019 winner! View the video of Mark receiving the custom artwork crafted by Ron Nelson!
