Caption Contest: And the Winner Is…
Caption Contest: And the Winner Is…November 4, 2011
The response to the Sporting South caption contest was overwhelming, so overwhelming that it has taken me way longer than expected to name a winner. But before I get to the grand champion there are a few honorable mentions that deserve attention.
One theme that bubbled up was my poor shooting (how did you guys know?). Jason Lind struck with this one: Did you put any lead in those shells?
And Mike Stacey added this: I know it's a Benelli, but it ain't done nothin’ for a DiBenedetto.
A reader named Charlie tossed a caption out that gets the most unexpected award: Who knew Jeff Daniels shot doves?
And quite a few of you had fun with the Boykin breed. From the sound of Elizabeth Crabtree’s caption she might own a few little brown dogs. This was her take: The only place a Boykin sits still.
And Karley Little added this: A Boykin—a thing of beauty that annoys forever!
Liz Mangham got in the spirit of the political season with her entry: Dave! That was no covey... that was Cheney!
But in the end, our highly subjective contest was won by a reader calling herself Honey.
This was her entry: OMG!! Did you see the size of that dove?????
Honey, nice job. Please e-mail your address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get your bag of G&G goodies in the mail. For the rest of the participants, thanks for your many entries. If you didn’t win don’t despair. There’s another caption contest coming soon.
