Deadline for 2011 Prois Awards Contest extended to midnight, Oct. 2

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. 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, she’ll 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.

CEO of Prois, Kirstie Pike, and an Alpen Optics spotting scope.

“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, for Próis Hunting & Field Apparel. “We’re 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 ‘No guts, No glory’ 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.

Essays and photos are reviewed by a panel of industry expert judges, and the top 12 chosen will then be posted onto the Próis Awards website on October 15, 2011. Here the hunting community has until December 15, 2011 to cast their vote on which candidate they believe should be crowned the 2011 Próis Award Winner. The finalist with the most votes will officially be announced as the winner to the industry at both the 2012 Archery Trade Association Show in Columbus, OH and the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, NV.
