I love customer photos! As in 2012, I will pick out my favorite photo from our In the Field album for each month’s advertisement in Eastmans’ Hunting and Bowhunting Journals. There will be six Archery photos and six Rifle photos selected this year.

As you see above, Veronica has changed the layout a bit since last year to include a testimonial.

As a token of my appreciation for you submitting your photos to the album, on October 3rd 2013, the final entry will be selected for the last Eastmans’ issue of the year. At that time, all 12 featured entries will be posted to an album onto KUIU’s Facebook Page to be voted on.

The photo with the most “LIKES” will win an all expense paid Trophy Couse Deer Hunt with Colburn and Scott Outfitters and myself in Sonora Mexico, January 4th through 11th 2014. 

Jay Scott and Darr Colburn run one of the the finest Guiding operations in Arizona and Northern Mexico for GIANT elk, Desert Sheep, Coues Deer and Turkey. Their Coues deer hunts are second to none!


The hunt will be professionally photographed by the award winning outdoor photographer Paul Bride and will featured on the blog.

Photos we like:

  • Tastefully Shot (no back of the truck photos)
  • Little or no blood
  • Animal position
  • KUIU well represented in the photo
  • Beautiful backdrop helps
  • High Resolution

If selected you will need to submit a 150 to 200 word testimonial, I believe customers represent KUIU with more passion and credibility than any “prostaff” spokesperson ever could. 

** Featured in first photo above, Colton McSwain, is our first selection for 2013, with his giant Utah Archery bull.  Congratulations Colton!!

Please let me know if you have any questions.  You may submit your entries via email to album@kuiu.com or directly to In the Field.  Good luck!

    So the voting is done strictly via facebook and not on here anywhere? What if some of your customers are not into facebook but want to get in on this action?

    • Jason Hairston Reply

      Hi Keith,

      It will be easier to keep it all in one place. We will try and make it very easy to vote with a link out to the voting page.

    Hey Jason,
    I just returned from a week with Colburn and Scott in Mexico, and you are in for a great hunt. I have never met anyone who worked harder or was better to be around than Jay, Darr and Janis. The ranch was incredibly beautiful.
    This was my first hunt with 100% Kuiu gear and it was terrific. With the unseasonably cold weather, I needed all of my layers much of the day.
    If Jay sends pics, you will see that it was a Kuiu camp. Thanks for the products. Joe Harris
