Dumas is Three Time Winner of OFAH Artist of the Year

The Artist of the Year Program sponsored by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters began in 1992. Michael Dumas became the first artist to receive this honour, and when he was eligible again five years later he became the first artist to take the award twice. Being named as the 2004 Artist of the Year for an unprecedented third time puts Dumas in a class of his own and reflects the strong following he has in this organization.
