Tomorrow we will begin celebrating the Deer Hunting Season by trying to increase our member base.  We at Shotem and Caughtem could see no better way to help get more hunters to start posting photos to the site than to give away free stuff.  As such to celebrate the beginning of many states deer, elk and moose hunting seasons we created a special shirt in honor of the Racktoberfest Season.  For every person, member or new member, that posts a photo of their Hunting Glory, we will provide you with a link to purchase a Myracksbigger.com t-shirt for 5 dollars (which just covers part of our shipping costs).  T-shirts will be printed at the end of the Racktoberfest month and ship out the first part of November.  We hope all of our members and followers will help us spread the word about this fun giveaway and start enjoying all Shotem and Caughtem has to offer.

Let us know how we can help you get the word out in the comment section below and start posting your photos to the galleries.

September 28th which is Saturday is National Hunting and Fishing Day.  As such we only find it fitting that we also celebrate it as National Shotem and Caughtem Day.  

To celebrate our national day of honor we felt it only fitting to give some stuff away.  Our Great Partners at Weston Products, Anglers Choice and Stack-On Products have all chipped in for a great holiday celebration.  

So here are the rules.  On Saturday/Shotem and Caughtem Day, if you become a member and post a photo you will be entered in the random drawing to win either some Weston Spice for Jerky and Sausage, some great Bass Lures from Anglers Choice, or a stack on small handgun safe.  

The cool thing is that anyone who becomes a member and uploads a photo will be contacted so we can send you some free Shotem and Caughtem Merchandise.

So help us celebrate National Shotem and Caughtem Day!

We at Shotem and Caughtem have talked a little bit about the new profile URL setup on the website.  We hope that people who are already members have started to take advantage of what this option will help them accomplish.  However, if you are new to Shotem and Caughtem we thought we might highlight some things that might be of benefit to our new members as a way of opening new advertising and conversation portals on the site.  

Recently one of our new members Montana Outdoor Gear began to take advantage of a small part of what Shotem and Caughtem was built around and we hope others follow suite.  They can begin to give there own reviews and pricing for their products in the gear section and expand on things you might not find on their site.  They can link people to their extra bonus material by just letting others know about their profile www.shotemandcaughtem.com/montana_outdoor_gear.  

Hunting and Fishing outfitters will also be able to expand their advetising as they will be able to take photos of people on their adventures and have a running gallery of their accomplishments.  They too will be able to direct traffic to their own operations while expanding on things they might not have the ability to do currently on their own website.

Finally individuals will be able to brag about their own adventures in the field by letting friends and family know about their profiles.  You are able to creat your own photo galleries within your profile so that you always have a copy of your hunting and fishing photos.  No more searching through disks, hard drives etc. when people ask how your last adventure turned out.

All these things are especially important as many people can find just hunting and fishing gear, photos and outdoor lovers.  No more sifting through tons of profiles trying to find people interested in these great sports.  The only people you will find on Shotem and Caughtem are those who love to hunt and fish.  Most outdoorsman/woman do both anyway.  You will find very few who do not have at least an interest in both even if they don't participate.

Let us know if you have any questions or want to know more in the comment section below or build a profile and start bragging by providing us with your own hunting and fishing website right here on Shotem and Caughtem.

Contest rules and information:

We will be adding three new sections to the home page of the website in the near future.  They are Shotem of the Week, Caughtem of the Week, and Recipe of the week.  You must follow the rules listed below to have your photo be apart of the selection process for a weekly Winner, however, we reserve the right to use this space as we so choose and there might not be a new winner every week.  Winning members will be chosen by us, likes from members and will receive some free Shotem and Caughtem Merchandise for being featured in one of these three categories.  Winners will be rewarded swag so that they will no longer have to search the truck or boat for something to write on or with.  

Rules:

1.  Only members of the Shotem and Caughtem Website are considered for the Contest so make sure you are a member of the website.  You must be able to prove that it is your photo since it must be you in the photo to win.  No false bragging, those end up in the Mishaps Gallery!

2.  Must be a photo that pertains to one of the three categories. (Shotem, Caughtem, or a recipe from the Gear Section)

3.  In order for us to know if you would like to be included in the Contest we ask two things.  The photo must say "Shotem And Caughtem" somewhere.  You could type it into the photo on your computer,  use one of the logos off our site, write it on a piece of paper/on a piece of toilet paper and have it with you in the photo, or scratch it into the print, we will not discriminate, but it must be legible and easy to see.  The photos below are a great example.  

4.  We ask you to provide some details on what you have going on in the photo.  For example, the photo below is of me and my buddy and the pheasants we killed while we were out in Southwest Kansas.  We were hunting crop circles with a group of friends.  He was using a 20g benelli and I was using a 12g 870.   We had a blast!  You could also provide stats.  For example,  "5lb bass caught on Table Rock Lake near the bank with a watermelon lizard as bait.  It was 8am and about 60 degrees out."  The more info we have the better.  Provide your name, location, size, or what you used.  We will take as much info as you are willing to provide.  We might even e mail you to find out more if your photo is selected.

5.  Should your photo be selected, you will be notified by e mail and be asked to provide an mailing address where we can send your prize.  Your photo will be shared as our weekly winner across many different media platforms.  We will not share your personal information (name, address, etc) but will share the link to the post on the website.  Beware! If you do not want to provide this information or want us to brag to others we ask that you not enter the contest!

As the website grows prizes will continue to change so keep your photos coming.  You never know what you might get.  Once you recieve your free swag we hope you might brag about your prize in the gear section of the website.  That's why were all here anyway right?  To share, brag and connect with others about our outdoor experiences!  Spring is here so get out and start the Shotem and Caughtem season and win some cool free prizes!
