1st Annual HSO Pumpkin Carving Contest

9 posts in this topic

Fun, fun, fun!!! This is a contest where creativity will reign supreme. There is a youth and adult contest and the winners will be chosen by HotSpot Outdoors Pro Staff. What we are looking for is a pumpkin carving relating to the great outdoors. Deer, Fish, Wildlife, nature scenes or anything relating to great outdoors. Try and get the kids involved as much as possible. If we have good success this might become an annual event. Here is what you need to do...

1)Get a pumpkin and carve it out.

2)Create your design and cut it out.

3)Take a digital photo and display it in the “Pumpkin Carvings” link in the Photo Sharing forum. If possible try and take a photo at night with a candle or light in the pumpkin. Be sure to note if the pumpkin was carved by a youth or adult. If possible take the photo with your child and their pumpkin.

4)On the photo be sure to include your e-mail address so the winners can be notified.

There will be a first, second and third place for each division.

Be sure to have fun and good luck to all,

Happy carvings laugh.gif,

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
