First, The Frugal Outdoorsman pays zero dollars for articles and photos. You get a publication credit, and you retain copyrights. We retain the right to publish the article and accompanying photos only on this web site: www.castbullet.com. We want only articles with accompanying photos.

We will correct your grammar and unclear sentence structure. We expect you to check your spelling. We expect you to get someone to proofread your manuscript before you submit it. There is no limit on word countbut we want articles, not books!

If you've dreamed of being a writer like Skeeter Skelton or Paco Kelly or Elmer Keith or Peter Capstick, you have a place to start.
