Artists able to make their mark on hunting season

The Door County art scene has a chance to merge with the Wisconsin hunting landscape. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is accepting entries to the 2022 wild turkey, pheasant, and waterfowl stamp design contest. Local artists can submit their paintings of each species, and the winning designs will be used on stamps that authorize one’s right to hunt it. While many buy their stamps online now, the painting would be displayed on physical stamps, the DNR website, and publications like press releases and regulation pamphlets. Assistant Upland Biologist for the DNR Alaina Gerrits discusses how the stamp sales help keep Wisconsin outdoors thriving. 



The competition is for Wisconsin residents and open to non-hunters as well. Submissions are due on July 15th, 2021. More information on entry can be found here.
