Do you know an exceptional outfitter? Show your appreciation by nominating them today for DSC’s Outfitter of the Year Award!

There is a good chance that your outfitter is doing more than just setting up and guiding hunts, and DSC seeks to acknowledge those contributions through this award.

Time is running out as nominations are only accepted through September 30. The winning outfitter receives publicity through official DSC press releases across the industry leading up to convention, recognition on stage at an evening banquet of the annual convention, and the official Outfitter of the Year banner on the show floor. Not to mention, they are recognized year after year as a part of the official Outfitter of the Year winner list.

Criteria used to select the winner by a select committee include promotion of ethical hunting, promotion of women and youth in the outdoors, DSC membership, and exhibitor and donor history.

To nominate your favorite outfitter is simple. Send an email to Karrie Meadows, karrie@biggame.org, with the outfitter’s name and the reasons they are candidates for the award. Nominating tip: reach out to the outfitter to let them know you are nominating them and ask for real examples of associations or projects they are participating in around their area. These details can make the difference between the top contenders.
