About The Publication:

“We publish ONLY stories about the harvests of world-class animals, 75 percent of which are enormous white-tailed deer. All whitetails MUST be measured on the BTR system and score 160 or more inches as ‘typicals’ or ‘perfects,’ or at least 175 if ‘irregular’ or ‘semi-irregular.’ A BTR score is like a true gross score WITHOUT the inside spread. Other stories may revolve around the harvest of most any North American big game trophy, so long as the animal qualifies for one of the major record books (B&C, P&Y, Longhunter or SCI). DO NOT send queries or manuscripts for any other type of story. We do not buy columns, how-to, where-to or gear-related articles.” Welcomes new writers. Circ. 76.7K. Bi-monthly. Pays on publication.
