Fall 2018 Report
As the editor, it takes a team to make this all come together. The articles submitted are fun and exciting for all trappers alike.
If you would like to submit your article or story, please send your text in simple word format. Attach images to go with your article, but rename your photo as to what it is. So if you send image one, rename the image something like, 'beaver dam entry' or 'beaver pelt underbelly.' I will include this text with the image so others know what you are referring to.
I sure am learning a lot about trapping, but I am still a newbie and have a hard time determining what an image is depicting. I need large images that are raw or 1-10 megabytes large. Any image size that has a K at the end is actually too small (1-999K) and will be published small. Small images will be grainy and lose a lot of detail. I left an image 'as is' in the fall 2018 newsletter to view as an example (See page 14). Don’t get me wrong, images do work, but quality is important and makes for a brilliant newsletter publish.
Thank you and keep your writing hats on.
