To be eligible you must have put in some time in the Maine woods!  Nominees must have hunted, trapped, and fished in Maine for a COMBINED total of 40 years. 40 YEARS! Can you imagine the stories and adventures these people must have! The ideal candidates would also be active in being mentors or instructors in outdoor activity.

Last year's winners were Charlie Mann from Winthrop and George Smith from Mount Vernon.
