If there were specific strategys used to kill the deer, i like enough detail written so that i can understand how it worked. I dont like a lot of fluff, but if there was a ton of work or strategy going into the kill i like to read about it.

Those 1 huge paragraph stories - I can't read them. Too hard to stay on the correct line.

I learned and retained more about dinosaurs than I did typographical devices, pertaining to handwritten texts in elementary school. ;) That is more than likely, why, I was always in the dumb classes. :think:

Blame my technical education, I like as much detail as possible :lol:

But I do like them all too....even 2 sentences means a whole lot more to me than just a photo.

Photos by themselves mean just about nothing to me.

I like a compromise, more like a medium length story heavy on the where and why details but otherwise to the point. 2-4 buck/ hero shots, 1-2 maps and a video is always a welcome bonus. I could care less to pics of rubs, scrapes and tracks, those are better left for the live from the field or the journals. One pic of the set up isn't a bad thing either.

Meat and potatoes, no fluff, unless it's a multi year chase. Even then 1 pic a year is sufficient.

Short and sweet for me.

If it's got to be long _ add spaces, paragraphs etc..

I still like them all though, just takes more beer to get through some than others!

Im terrible at typing up stories so I like to focus on the good stuff and keep it short and simple as possible. Novels put me to sleep, but that just me.
