This could be fun...

The NRA is now accepting entries for its 2007 Youth Wildlife Art Contest. The contest, the 20th in the annual series, is open to students in grades 1 through 12 (including home-schooled children). Entries may portray any North American game bird or animal that may be legally hunted or trapped. Endangered species and non-game animals, such as eagles and snakes, are not eligible subjects. Call (703) 267-1595 if you need to confirm whether a certain animal or bird is eligible. (Think of this as the "Can I shoot it?" hotline). The picture above won last year. This year, maybe something like the one below is more fitting.

Great - I can have my daughter draw a picture of a pine marten with a crossbow arrow piercing its chest. Or maybe I'll just have her take a photo of it.
