Story Contest

Cover Story Contest

For our 2019 Story Contest, we are excited to have Fierce Firearms as the Title Sponsor. That means every hunter who makes one of the 12 covers of the Huntin' Fool magazine in 2019 will win a Fierce Firearms Fury rifle. Each winner will have their choice of caliber from .300 WIN, .300 RUM, or .28 Nosler. Each rifle is upgraded with the muzzle break in the winner's color choice of black or Kryptek Typhon and upgraded to the carbon fiber stock. The retail value of the Cover Story prize is over $2,400.

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.

Submit Your Story & Photos

We love hearing about your successes and sharing them with the Huntin' Fool community! 

When you submit a story with a wide variety of photos, you'll get rewarded. We want to be able to feature as many stories as possible, whether they be printed in our magazine or published on our website. Just for sending us your story and photos, we will send you a Huntin' Fool decal.

Printed Stories


All stories printed in the magazine will receive a Huntin' Fool story package, which includes a five-piece all-purpose Camp Chef set (including a spatula, santoku knife, tongs, flat-nosed spoon, and carrying case), a Klymit Pillow X, an Outdoor Edge knife, an exclusive Huntin' Fool jacket, a Huntin' Fool hat, and four free copies of the issue in which the story is featured. Each story package is valued at $200.

Each month, printed stories and web stories are eligible for our Readers' Choice Story Contest. Voting for this contest is open to Huntin' Fool members and non-members. Everyone who visits our website will have access to read and vote for their favorite story.
