2020 Winter Giveaway
Blog by: Matt Snider 11/19/2020
What a year it has been. I cannot believe we are already in the final stretches of November. It's been a crazy season, eh? But the fires have mostly subsided, the air is fresh again, there has been some positive news on vaccines, but best of all.... the 2020 Winter Giveaway has begun!
If you're not familiar with the Winter Giveaway
, this is our 13th year doing it. Over the last 6 weeks of the year we offer this event as a thank you to all of you who have contributed through subscriptions, lake/river reports, or in a variety of other ways throughout the year. We gather a bunch of products and trips that you can win. And participating is super simple: you log in, choose a couple items you'd like to win, then come back and do it again. In January we randomly pick a winner for each prize.
I wasn't sure what to expect this year in terms of partner participation. Just like everything else, all the goings-on have impacted all the fishing and outdoor companies, all the shows, and all the communication. But alas, things worked out great, here we are, and we have a great lineup for you this year. I can't thank these partners enough for stepping up to be involved. Help thank them by visiting their websites and following their social media accounts.
We have some items you've seen before and we have some new faces, products, brands, and companies in the game. We also have some new fishing guides getting involved. I'll write more about all these in the days to come. As of today, we will have 79 winners in January - this is likely to grow by a few.

Matt . . .did you include the first ever H.P. mystery box? I've been collecting some interesting stuff for a beginner ice fisherman/fisherwoman.

No HP, that didn't show on my sonar! Shoot me an email about it if you're serious about doing it
