If you have pictures on your computer, just resize them so that they are under 2000 KB, click the "Additional Options in lower left corner, then the "browse" on the right of "Attach"
Presto !! pics !!

Also, just to comment on videos, my  :twocents:
As someone who watches a lot of hunting shows/ videos, and likes very few......
 I am tired of the same old "look what I did" shows, I have fantasized about making my own, but cannot afford the gear.
Let alone I hunt with Traditional Archery and only manage to get an Elk every 6 years or so, so I don't have the success of a lot of others.
Although a lot of that has to do with hunting a spike only area, and running into more branched bulls than spikes.  :bash:
My largest Bull harvested is a 5X7 that scores 242 5/8", but I do get chances at an Elk every year, usually get a doe for eating, so I am not the best subject to star in a video.
What I would like to see though is a video that spends more time explaining the basics, as in, what to look for, where to look, how to set up.
Why you use certain calls in different situations, etc......
I enjoy seeing "horn porn" as much as the next guy, but really, consider any animal harvested on public land in Washington, during general season with archery tackle a trophy.
And would appreciate more emphasis on what brought you to that point, than a video of the last 4-5 minutes before/during the shot, and another 5 minutes of "look at this".
I have enjoyed taking new hunters, (and even a couple non-hunters) out for a day in the woods, and calling in an Elk (some really good bulls even) just to show them what it is all about, at least to me, and   showing them how and why I hunt increases my satisfaction and does a lot more towards getting them interested than just showing them a dead animal.
I have never entered a competition, but feel that I can call with the best of them, and as I stated earlier, sometimes real elk sound worse than hunters.
I wish you luck with your endeavor, and look forward to seeing more Washington video's.

What kind of camera you got and how much hunt video experience do you have. It is turning into a pretty popular thing for guys to do the video thing and all but in reality the guys who have actually done it some know it takes a ton of money and a lot of hunts and $$$ to get enough footage for one video to actually be produced that will return you a couple bucks a piece!! I have a $2500 camera and have filmed probably 6 good quality hunts and only 1 has made a video and that is over several years. I know a lot of this sounds critical but maybe it is more some guys who have tried it or are doing it talking realism. If I were 20 years old and really wanted to get in this field of outdoor/hunt video, I would get in with someone who already makes hunting videos and get behind one of their cameras to learn and make a buck. I posted a few weeks ago about Steve Chappells film school in May and that would be a great first step and I bet if you show him you have a knack for it he would put you on a camera next fall maybe not making any $$ but you would learn a ton and get to be in big bulls every day. Anyways good luck in your venture and don't let the camera thing take the fun out of the hunt. nwhunter

I am actually already booked for that school in phoenix....I just got off the phone with him a hour ago..I have the priveledge of knowing steve very well...he has taught me a lot about how to elk call and hunt over the last few years. In my mind Steve is the best elk caller/hunter in the world...I thought if I'm going to learn how to do this i should learn from the best....He told me he is going to kickstart this whole thing for me!!!.sooo I'm very excited:).I'm going to learn and take in everything in from this school:)

I talked to steve last month and had the oppurtunity to work for chappell service but I decided not to because I told him I wanted to make my own videos!!!.I might go down to arizona and have him help me edit it if the filming goes good this summer/fall..I just bought (2) $2400 cameras with all the gear...I hunted last year for 2 weeks and filmed a hunt in eastern oregon for my dad...I could have gotten close to making a video last year if I had a camera....if I would have had a camera I might have  gotten 5 rosie kills and 2 rocky mountain kills on tape....and you also can put call ins on your video...every year my dad goes on one of the best ranches in EA Oregon and you can get some great footage there!!!...this year I am going to film for 2 months straight for elk..the beauty of being young:)..already got my schedule booked to film hunts in eastern oregon,western oregon,western wa...I am going to try to get as much footage as possible!!!..I think it would be sweet to get a great WA hunt on the video where someone shoots a great bull in the blue mountains or margaret...it would really attract a lot of people and the footage you could get would be priceless and make great memories:)

Now wait a minute.  This isn't going to turn into a "shake that bear" type video is it?

Don't forget about checking with the forest service and obtaining the filming permit where needed. If you are selling the video then you need a permit. It is or can be sold by a day basis. You will need to figure out who is paying for that I guess. I have heard of people getting calls from the Forest Service years after they filmed and sold the footage!

 I have some elk points built up but I am not interested in drawing attention to increase the odds for us anymore than necessary.  ;)
Good luck!

Filming Elk Hunts is Harder then you would think, practice practice practice.. Ive Effed up my share of good footage.. And remember even more practice.. its one thing filming a deer or a elk heard just standing there, but when you got a screamer coming in with your nervs thumping and your adrenalin kicking in and you want to watch and then you forget your rolling tape, you can Eff everything up...  and zoom in to much or watching and not filming.. blah blah blah.. Its def harder then you would think, espesially if your a hard core hunter, cause you want watch instead of film..  :twocents: Good luck Dude!.. Get all the advise from the people who have filmed hunts that you can..  :twocents:

Or thinking your hitting the record button and its all ready recording and then it pauses it...  :yike:. and a screaming bull comes in and you think you have everything on film then you check and aaahhh effff.. thanks Dad...

& my advice never check your footage while your in the woods on your hunt, cause you can record over your awesome footage you have already taped.. done that too...  If your serious about being hunting video dude, take all that in to count and always have your camera in your bag and practice.. ..  Filming hunts is adicting but can piss you off.. I know this has happend to plenty of other huntin vid dudes.. Good luck again!..  :)
Their going down!!!
