Outdoor writer Steve Sorensen won the “Whitetail Management Award” at the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association annual conference in Oil City, PA on May 2. The POWA “Excellence in Craft” awards program honors writing, artwork and photography in several categories.
Sorensen won with an article entitled “Where are the ‘Booners’?” published in January 2008 in the Warren Times Observer and the Forest Press. This is the third consecutive year Sorensen has won the Whitetail Management Award, which is awarded for the best published piece dealing with management of the white-tailed deer, and is sponsored by Trupe’s Quality Hunting and Wildlife Management of Shinglehouse, PA. Each award is reviewed by a panel of judges, all independent of the POWA.
POWA is the largest state outdoor writers’ organization in the nation. Sorensen lives in Russell, PA, serves as pastor of Pine Grove Christian Fellowship, speaks frequently at sportsmen’s banquets, and writes for a variety of regional and national magazines. “Where are the ‘Booners’?” appeared as an installment in his regular column called “The Everyday Hunter.”
