Email your photos to buck@adkhunter
Send us your photos and tell as much or a little about your hunt. We prefer to know the name of the shooter,
 locatoin (county) as well as the points and weight of the deer/bear.

Suggestions for taking quality photos of harvested game.
  • Try to take photos in the woods before you field dress your animal.  These are always better than truck beds and garages.
  • Experiment with different camera angles.
  • Keep the light on the hunter's face and on the game and pull your hat brim up to avoid shadows and to show your handsome face!
  • Clear away as much blood as possible and put the deer's tongue back in its mouth.
  • Try to avoid having alcohol and cigarettes in your photos.
  • Be sure to include the gun or bow you used.
  • Multiple bucks on a meat-pole are always good!
  • Party/group shots are good too!
  • So are shots with kids!
  • On all but the brighest days use a flash to fill in the shadows, even if your camera tells you it's not needed. 
  • Fill the viewfinder with your subject.  So many shots in general have too much dead space around the subject.  You don't need a too much headroom, just a little.
  • Use the automatic (AUTO) setting on your digital camera for most shots plust the flash.
  • Sports settings work good on moving subjects because the shutter speed is fast.
  • For your personal purposes try to use the hightest qualiy setting on a digital camera. That will be the one that offers the least amount of photos. These pictures will be of excellent quality for printing and sharing with others.  However, these same photos represent very large computer files. When emailing them to anyone, including,  you should only send one or two images per email.  If you have the know-how to reduce the size and resolution of your photos for emailing than by all means do so. BUT, be sure to save a copy of the original for yourself first and copy the others from that.  We like 100dpi (dots per inch) photo resolution cropped at 4x6-inches (288x432 pts) for this Web site, which is a little higher quality than your standard Email resolution of 72 dpi.  We alter hi-res images to lower-res for the Internet so they upload quicker on the reader's end and still look good on your monitor.
  • Tell as much or as little about your hunt.  We like to know the names of the hunters, antler points, weight, date and at least the county where the animal was taken along with whatever details you may or may not want to provide.
  • Most of all, we want you to preserve your memories for yourself and future hunters so take plenty of photos.
  • Best of luck and as always, thanks for sharing!
