How To: Posting Photos for Non-Hunters

Photos are a great way to capture the memories of a great day in the field. A clean, clear photo will be passed around among your friends, posted on social media and otherwise used to promote our sport. Nobody wants to see a bloody animal with its tongue hanging out and an open stomach cavity.

Push the tongue inside the mouth and clean all the blood off the face and wound.

Take pictures when the animal is fresh and pose it in a natural bedded position if possible. (This isn't always possible with large animals).

Take photos before field dressing the animal.

Take lots of digital photos from all angles and include some of the surrounding terrain.

Make sure that the hunter and trophy are the main focus. Keep them in the center of the photo and be sure that they nearly fill the frame.
