• Photo should be taken in natural settings with no vehicles or buildings in background.
• Show safe handling of firearms, bows, and other equipment.
• No alcohol containers or tobacco products visible.
• Photo may not be of a mounted trophy or a caped animal.
• Must be well lit, in sharp focus, without a black background.
• Prominently show the animal and the NAHC Member who harvested it.
