Leupold & Stevens, Inc. has announced the return of the Project Hunt contest, which offers hunters across the United States the chance to have an upcoming hunt filmed and shared across Leupold’s digital media platforms.

It’s your tag, your hunt, and your story. Leupold’s Project Hunt, presented by GoHunt, is offering contest entrants the chance to star in a Leupold digital series. You plan the hunt; you call the shots. Leupold will provide a videographer to capture the story. A short film or limited series about your hunt will be produced by Leupold and released digitally in 2023.

Hunts must take place before March 1, 2023, to be considered. In addition to the provided videographer, selected entrants will also receive a prize package of Leupold optics, and an annual GoHunt Insider membership.

“Last year we launched our first-ever ‘Project Hunt’ contest and it was a huge success,” said Bruce Pettet, president and chief executive officer of Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “This year we’re back and looking for another incredible story to tell. No one is more relentless than the members of the Leupold Core, and we’re asking you to help us prove it. Whether you’re going on the hunt of a lifetime or hunting close to home with your family, it’s time to tell your story.”

In 2021, Leupold chose two winners for the Project Hunt contest. Jesse Shiner and Matt Hicks will each have their stories unfold in upcoming short films to be released in 2022.

“I've been putting in 23 years for a bighorn sheep tag in Arizona…Couldn’t believe when I got drawn for it,” Hicks said. “It was an amazing experience, just a real trip of a lifetime. Leupold sponsoring this, they really went above and beyond, what a great company. Provided me tons of gear, the scope I used, binoculars, spotting scope, tripod, everything they provided we used. Couldn't thank those guys enough."

The deadline to enter is June 18, 2022. Entries must be submitted at Leupold.com/ProjectHunt. A two-minute video explaining why your submission should be selected is required to enter, and a complete list of contest rules can be found at Leupold.com/ProjectHunt-Official-Rules.
