2019 Contest Winners

Sadly, The Great Morel forgot to send out the “official” 2019 Contest notice. Which explains why there were’t any winners listed here.  Although, there were some super photos sent in in the 2019 Season, which can be viewed in the 2019 Sightings Gallery.


2020 Contest Winners

Ray R, from Fayette County Pennsylvania was the 2020 Photo winner.  Ray’s photo was made into a puzzle and can be purchased here in the store. His photo was deserving as you can tell. Runner-up photos are shown below as well.

The runner-ups below come to you from Kelly S, from Stevenson, AL, and Zack W from Battle Creek, MI. For their great shots, they were rewarded with a hat and a hand carved deer antler key chain.
