WHAT IS A FALL OBSESSION FIELD STAFFER?
As a Fall Obsession Field Staffer, your primary job will be to send us content showcasing your experience, knowledge and recent outdoor endeavors. Your content (pictures, videos, articles, reviews, etc.) will be posted on our website and social media pages, while being credited to you. Contributing through educational articles and/or product reviews is strongly encouraged. All submitted content will be reviewed and approved by a Fall Obsession Administrator prior to being published.
If you as Field Staffer were to submit a high quality filmed hunt, including an intro, the hunt itself (including the kill shot), and recovery of the animal, it will be uploaded to our YouTube Channel in addition to our website. Depending on the nature of the kill and the quality of the video, it also may be shown in the upcoming season of our online hunting show, “Fall Obsessed Outdoors”, following Administrative approval.
As you send us content (pictures, videos, articles, reviews, etc.), you will begin to accumulate credit points based on your content. These credit points will allow you progress within the Field Staff Program. We have set different brackets, or “Levels” as we refer to them, to track Field Staffers as they build up points.
Once you have built up enough points to meet your current Level’s maximum number of points, you will progress to the next Level up. Upon joining our Field Staff, you will automatically start as a Level I Field Staffer. The Field Staff Program Levels are set as listed below…
|Level I||0-250 accumulated points|
|Level II||250-500 accumulated points|
|Level III||500-750 accumulated points|
|Level IV||750-1000 accumulated points|
|Level V||1000-1250 accumulated points|
Every subject you submit (subjects being pictures, videos, articles, etc.) is worth a set number of credit points, which you will be awarded once published. The more content you have published, the more your credit points begin to accumulate. The content credit point values are listed below…
|1 Photo||10 credit points|
|1 Video||20 credit points|
|1 Article/Written Review||25 credit points|
|1 Website Link||5 credit points|
You will receive 1 (one) additional point for every “Like” your content receives on social media within the first 24 hours following publication.
Upon completion of each Field Staff Level, you will receive an award from Fall Obsession. These awards include, but are not limited to official Fall Obsession brand gear/apparel, products from our sponsors, and other approved products such as camo, game calls, decoys and more! We also present a monthly “Staffer of the Month Award”, recognizing the Staffer with the highest activity level during that given month. Both Pro Staffers and Field Staffers are eligible to receive this award, as it is based on your performance, not your Staffing Level or credit points alone.
The total number of credit points you accumulate over time will remain with you. This means when we transition to a new Staffing Year (every August), and you choose to remain a part of our Staff during such a time, you will not lose any of your credit points. Your points and Member Level will carry over into the new Staffing Year.
Upon your annual Fall Obsession start date, you will be required to sign a yearly “Letter of Intent” document in order to keep your position on Staff during the upcoming year.
As a Field Staffer, you will also be eligible to receive exclusive benefits and/or discounts from our sponsors. You can opt out of these benefits should you wish, but if you do, your content will then have to be filtered prior to publication to ensure there are no conflicts of interest against our sponsors.
WHAT ABOUT PRO STAFF?
So you continue to advance through the Field Staff Program, moving up from Level to Level. What happens next? How far can you go? Upon meeting certain requirements, Field Staffers now have the option to apply for and promote to a Pro Staff position. The Pro Staff Program has slightly different requirements and program structure. While Pro Staffers do receive more in the form of Level advancement awards and select sponsor discounts, more is also required of a Pro Staffer than that of a Field Staffer. The Pro Staff Program is a separate application process. In order to become a Pro Staffer, you must first meet these prerequisites…
A minimum of 1 year as an active member of Fall Obsession’s Field Staff Program
Must be a Level V Field Staffer at minimum, equivalent to 1000 accumulated credit points or more
Complete and return Fall Obsession’s Pro Staff Application packet
Undergo an official review of your recent activity and involvement with the organization, conducted by a Fall Obsession Administrator
Any eligible Field Staffer may apply for Pro Staff Membership at any time during the Staffing Year. If you are eligible for Pro Staff Membership, yet choose to not apply and remain a Field Staffer, it does not prevent you from applying for Pro Staff at a later date, should you choose to do so. Advancing to Pro Staff is not a requirement. For more detailed information regarding Pro Staff Membership, please contact one of our Administrators
OTHER RULES AND REGULATIONS
There are a few additional rules, regulations and expectations we have of you as a Field Staffer.

Upon being notified, you will have 30 days to respond and claim your award. If you fail to respond within 30 days, Fall Obsession is then relieved of any obligation to send you any award.
