- Topics: Topics covering fishing and hunting of any North American species legal to fish or hunt for are accepted. Boating, camping and conservation related articles are acceptable as well.
- Article Aim: Articles should teach or share an experience another outdoorsman could or would want to have. The vast majority of readers come to a website to learn something new. Keep that in mind please. We are looking for clear takeaway for our readers: What can they learn to improve their time in the outdoors.
- Language: In general please keep all writing void of foul language. ODU wants to make sure children can read this magazine without issue. If a quote is needed for an article that has these type words, please just change the quote.
- Politics: Politics can be divisive. Lets keep ODU from becoming that way. Lets try to strengthen the voice of the outdoorsman and keep to the facts. Any topic on hunting and fishing access, loss of public lands, hunting rights, gun control / 2nd Amendment, and any other related fishing and hunting hot button topic is great to talk about. We like to talk about the topics, not the political parties/groups that may support on side or the other.
