I would recommend getting the Field and Stream App. I bought a magazine after I had been reading the app and found that I had already read most of the articles on the free appNot really a hunting magazine guy anymore. I still enjoy Outdoor Life/Field and Stream more than others, but cut subscriptions to those as well. I started to realize that most months the magazines, while having cool pictures or stories, mostly failed to offer anything applicable to me these days. Too much LE/trophy focus to invest money in them anymore.
That said, there is one magazine I'd strongly advise AGAINST using, and that's Muley Crazy. They are on my 'do not support' list after the crap Ryan Hatch pulled this year.
Good luck with your article, ridge.
Trophy Hunter is done. Come from the guys who published it. As far as giving great gifts for articles I got nothing and then they started giving my article to other companies without saying anything to me.Definitely try Trophy Hunter Magazine. Here are two reasons:
1. Your deer is a big enough trophy to qualify for an article in the magazine (deer have to be 180"+)
2. They give way better prizes/payment for the articles they select. For example, they give things like a new Hoyt bow, Browning A-Bolt rifle, Kenetrek boots, badlands backpack etc... For comparison, Eastmans gives a pair of Zeiss binoculars (sweet), but the rest of the articles get something like a Firstlite clothing package, a tightspot quiver, a decoy, a knife, stuff like that. Of course, Trophy Hunter gives prizes like that, too. It just seems like they have more of the "jackpot" things that would be awesome to get for free!
Good luck. I hope you are able to get it published somewhere, regardless of which publication you choose.
That stinks that you got worked. My friend got a Browning A bolt for his article, but I have to admit that it was 4-5 years ago.Trophy Hunter is done. Come from the guys who published it.

Magazines are a dying thing.
