Sorensen took the top award in the Magazine category for an article titled “The Arthur Young Buck — 1830,” the historic tale of a McKean County, PA buck, the earliest animal recognized in any big game record book in the world. It was published in the December 2013 issue of Pennsylvania Game News magazine.

Besides the 2015 Pinnacle, Sorensen has won many state awards. His newspaper column, “The Everyday Hunter,” is a three-time winner of “Best Newspaper Column” from the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writer’s Association. His column appears regularly in the Olean Times Herald (NY) and the Forest Press (PA).

He has published feature articles in a variety of magazines including Outdoor Life, Sports Afield, Deer and Deer Hunting, North American Whitetail, Pennsylvania Game News, Ohio Valley Outdoors and more. He is the content editor for the Havalon Sportsman’s Post from Havalon Knives, a field editor for both Bear Hunters Online and Deer Hunters Online and a popular speaker at sportsman’s dinners.

Sorensen has also authored three books, “Growing Up With Guns” (2013), and two volumes in The Everyday Hunter Handbook Series: “Secrets of Using Pre-Orbital Gland Lure” (2014) and “A 30-Day Hunt for Faith” (2015).
