Winners will be chosen randomly and notified via email on May 1. Winners are responsible for their own transportation to and from the location Dovish chooses on the day of the outing. The shoot location will be announced in April. Some of Dovish’s favorite trips could include the Buffalo River area, the ghost town of Rush, War Eagle Mill, Rock Creek Natural Area, Hideout Hollow or many others.
