Submit Stories and Photos

Sharing your story and photos builds up our community. Just for sending us your story and photos, we will send you a Huntin’ Fool window decal.

When submitting your hunt story and photos:

  • Keep stories to between 500 and 1,200 words, saved in Microsoft Word format.
  • Submit original full-resolution photos, NOT the smaller thumbnail versions. Save as .jpegs (.jpg) or .tiff files. Most cameras take photos as .jpegs or .jpgs, and some will take raw file formats (.RAW or .ARW). Our preferred file format is .jpeg, but any of the aforementioned formats can be processed. Huntin’ Fool considers high-resolution photos as photos that are 300 dpi (dots per inch) or larger than 1 MB.
  • Make sure to send a variety of photos to support your story (scenery, glassing, hiking, camping, live animal, harvest from different angles, etc.) The more pictures we have to work with when designing a story for the magazine, the better.
  • Remember to send the first and last names of everyone in your group photos so I know who’s who in each picture for your story photo captions.
  • There are 4 options for sending in photos:
    1. Email: submit@huntinfool.com — Attach 2-3 photos at a time to help maintain photo quality.
    2. Postal Mail: Huntin’ Fool – P.O. Box 250 – Cedar City, UT – 84721 — Burn your photos to a storage device such as a cd, dvd, or flash drive.
    3. Dropbox: A free service for sharing your documents and photos: https://www.dropbox.com/request/htR8CDDjciJrBGEylhLS If you use this option, please also email submit@huntinfool.com when you upload your photos and let us know what state and species your photos are for.
    4. WeTransfer: Another free service for sharing documents and photos: https://wetransfer.com.

By submitting your photos, you hereby grant Huntin’ Fool permission to use them on their website or other electronic form or any media, including print, or in any other manner desired without notifying you. In return, Huntin’ Fool agrees to credit the hunter/photographer with the photo wherever possible.

Photo Submission Guidelines

Photos should be submitted to Huntin' Fool as high resolution .jpegs (.jpg) or .tiff files. Most cameras take photos as .jpegs or .jpgs, and some will take raw file formats (.RAW or .ARW). Our preferred file format is .jpeg, but any of the aforementioned formats can be processed. Huntin’ Fool considers high-resolution photos as photos that are 300 dpi (dots per inch) or larger than 1 MB.

Checking Photo Size on a Computer

To check the size of your photo on a PC:

  1. Double click to open the .jpeg
  2. Click on "File" and under image properties look at "Details." Beneath the image information, you should see the width and height of the image in pixels and the dpi below it

To check the size of your photo on a MAC:

  1. Open the image with Preview
  2. Under "Tools," click "Show Inspector"
  3. The "Image Size" and "Image DPI" should be at the bottom of the screen

We understand that most hunters bring their cell phones on the hunt and may not have a high-end DSLR camera or other digital camera. Even so, we want to see any and all photos from your dream hunt! We prefer high-resolution photos, but if they don’t quite fit the sizing requirements, we can work with them.
