It's easy. Before you begin your video, make sure you agree to the terms and conditions of the contest.

Now you are ready to follow the five easy steps that could win you one of three huge prizes. Five easy steps.

1. Come up with a great idea for your video. Think of ways to show everyone why you want, need, hunt with, or simply can’t live without, a Browning over and under shotgun. That includes the Citori and Cynergy.

2. Second, shoot your video and make it look nice. As our friend Matt Hughes says, “The Double Barrel Militia” is the only contest where you can submit and still win.” Your video must be under three minutes. Keep it clean and keep it entertaining. You should read the “terms and conditions” first to make sure your video meets all the requirements and rules of the contest.

3. Third, submit your video this way – simply upload it to your own YouTube channel. (If you're not already a YouTube user, you'll need to create an account with them -- just go to youtube.com and follow the instructions). If you already have an account, and your video is done, upload to your own channel right now.


4. Fourth, fill out the contest registration form on Browning.com, including contact information and your video's unique YouTube Web address information (channel, name, and URL). You will need to read and agree to the terms and conditions of the contest. Please provide all the information asked for since we need to be able to locate you in order to post your video on the Browning “Double Barrel Militia” YouTube Channel with all the other entries. Not to mention that we will need your information so we can inform you if you are chosen a winner.

5. Fifth, after you have filled out the form on Browning.com, press Submit.

6. Now, go tell all your friends about your Browning Double Barrel Militia (DBM) video entry. Every “view” increases your chance of winning. A few days after your submission is received and approved, your video will appear on the DBMContest channel as one of our favorites and help increase your view count.

Good luck and good shooting!
