Próis® Hunting & Field Apparel, the leading manufacturer of performance-driven hunting clothing for women, continues to celebrate females who dominate in the field with its annual Próis Awards. On Aug. 16, the company has officially given the ʻgreen lightʼ for all huntresses who are hardcore at heart to enter the prestigious contest. And the competition will be stiff, as there is only one winner who will take home the coveted prize: a hunt of a lifetime for Elk, Mule Deer, Whitetail and Wolf in the pristine Canadian Rocky Mountains with Savage Encounters. Plus, sheʼll be fully outfitted with the latest hunting gear from top equipment manufacturers and Próis Awards sponsors — a killer package that rings in at more than $25,000 in value.
“Próis and its contest partners are passionate about recognizing strong, successful female hunters who consider hunting a lifestyle, and are involved in conservation, management and the hunting community,” says Kirstie Pike, CEO for Próis Hunting & Field Apparel. “Weʼre excited to kick off the start of the 2011 Próis Awards, and receive some amazing stories about fearless women who live to hunt – and hunt to live.”
The ʻNo guts, No gloryʼ statement holds true with the Próis Awards, the winner must have passion, determination and an unbelievable story to tell that will inspire female hunters around the globe. If this sounds like you, visit www.Próishunting.com/Próisaward for details on how to enter. Submissions will be accepted until midnight September 31, 2011.
