Outdoor Writer A Double Winner
Steve Sorensen, outdoor columnist for the Warren Times Observer, the Forest Press, and the Brookville Mirror, won two awards for his writing at the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association Conference on May 19. Sorensen received the Wild Turkey Award for an article called "Four Simple Rules Can Make Bagging Your Springtime Tom Like Falling Off A Log." He won the Whitetail Management Award for "The Two Sides of Quality Deer Management." Both articles appeared in NWPA Outdoors, a magazine published in Erie that serves northwestern Pennsylvania.
The awards were sponsored, respectively, by the Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, and Trupe's Quality Hunting and Wildlife Management of Shinglehouse, PA.
Sorensen's newspaper column called The Everyday Hunter won the 2006 POWA award for "Best Newspaper Column." He is the editor of NWPA Outdoors, freelances for other magazines, and serves as pastor of Pine Grove Christian Fellowship in Russell, PA.
