A photo contest in NY takes aim at getting women in the great outdoors

Less than 9% of licensed Empire State hunters are women, and the DEC says this picture competition is all about getting more ladies to hunt.

Winning photos will be included in next year’s hunting regulations guide and possibly social media posts.

The pictures may showcase women preparing for the pursuit, in the hunt, or posing with their prey.
