Keep stories between 500 and 1,500 words, saved in Microsoft Word format.
Submit original full-resolution photos, NOT the smaller thumbnail versions, as .JPEGS (.JPG) or .TIFF files.
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.
Send the first and last names of everyone in your group photos
You do not have to submit a story to be in our magazine!
Photos alone have the opportunity to be featured in the following ways:
The Title Sponsor for the 2021 Cover Story Contest is Diamondback. Thanks to them, the 12 hunters who are chosen as our cover stories this year will receive a Diamondback truck bed cover. These covers are made with durable construction, protect your gear from the elements, and provide a deadbolt-style lock system. These covers are designed to fit every truck, so it’s the perfect fit for any hunter to keep their gear safe and dry. We are excited to partner with Diamondback to bring each of our Cover Story winners this amazing prize!
Our cover stories are chosen based on a variety of criteria, which includes the size of the animal, quality of the photos submitted, variety of the photos submitted (harvest and supporting), and if the angle and pose of the photo fits our cover design. If you’re interested in submitting your story and photos to be considered for one of our covers, make sure you send us harvest photos that showcase different angles. The more options our graphic designer has to work with, the better chance you have of making the cover.
2021 Printed Story Prize
All stories that are printed in the 2021 magazines will receive an exclusive story package! The 2021 printed story packages contain a Klymit Cush Seat, an Outdoor Edge RazorBone knife, a Pyro Putty Survival Pack (2 summer foil packs, 3 winter foil packs, a large mega inferno rod, and a multi-tool), 50 feet of Extremus orange paracord, a Huntin’ Fool branded ScopeCoat, a Huntin’ Fool branded Nalgene water bottle, a Huntin’ Fool hat, and four free copies of the issue in which the story is featured. Each story package is valued at $200. The opportunity to receive a great story package like this makes writing and submitting your story well worth your time.
2021 Trophy Room Prize
Vortex Optics is continuing to sponsor our Trophy Room Photo Contest. To enter, submit your 2020 harvest photos by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will be chosen by a panel of Huntin’ Fool staff based on photo resolution, quality, and composition.

The winner of this contest will receive a pair of Vortex Diamondback HD 10x42 binoculars valued at $279.99.
