    With the help of our talented group of authors we are serving a big need in long range hunting education. Now I would like to start focusing on adding some hunt stories or technical articles with video.

    I would host the video files on my server. The article would have an embedded link to the video.

    If you have an article idea, email me. I'd like to get an article up on the site soon to test the idea.

    And if any of you existing authors has a video clip that would add something to an existing story or article, let me know and we may just add it now.

    Len,

    How long of a video c lip are you looking at using? I might have one or two lying around to attach to one of the articles I have written already.

    Boy, I don't know. I am new at this. Probably 1 to 5 minutes.

    What are my choices?

    I just wanted to know so I could edit it down for the best use. If it is too long no one will wait for the down load. I definately would not go over 5 2 or 3 would probably be better. I'll get you one two minutes or less burned to disk and mailed to you. Email me you shipping address if you would.

    I am not sure I'll have to check and see.
