Follow the below submission guidelines to create a compelling story and increase the odds of being a featured story.
We evaluate all stories based on photo quality, trophy quality, and the overall quality of the story. Stories with the best of all three aspects are the most likely to be published as feature stories in the Western Hunter Magazine. We also pick others for the “All Tagged Out” section of the magazine, or you can be highlighted on Wester Hunter Online in the Hunt Stories & Adventures category.
You don’t have to be the world’s greatest writer to submit your hunt story; don’t worry we have a team of writers and editors that will help you along the way. However, here are some guidelines to keep in mind that make a story more compelling to the readers.
Having proper images to go along with your story is mandatory to be published in the magazine. Please avoid submitting low-quality, small, or low-resolution images. We require high-resolution images to ensure the highest quality end product for our readers. Images can be from any aspect of the hunt, i.e. camp, glassing, hiking, etc. This is another opportunity to help draw the reader into your story.
We hope to receive images that are at least 1.25MB in file size – Please do not resize your images down or compress them in any way in order to send them to our editors. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Include a short list of gear that you believe made a worthwhile impact on your hunt. Think weapon, clothes, pack, boots, any piece of gear that you want the reads to know you were using. These will be included at the end of your story and gives our reader a bit of insight into what you were using during your story.
