For the 14th consecutive year, the public is invited to help pick the winners of the Great Outdoors Photo Contest at the Wichita Sport Show this week at the Kansas Pavilions. At the show, which runs Thursday through Sunday, attendees will also be able to see wild-game cooking demonstrations from Michael Pearce, The Eagle’s Outdoors writer and photographer, who will demonstrate recipes from the “Taste of the Kansas Outdoors Cookbook.”
