Ideas & concepts

I chose those the sample images because I like the full circle or text with arch.

And I like the rustic typeface. They all have green and brown earth tones, which I like, specifically the colors of Wild Larry and Wood Chuck.
Repurposed and Nothern Bounty are my favorite for text style and layout.

Overall, Northern Bounty is my favorite because of the elements under the arch, similar to Hickory Hollow.

I imagine a bow and arrow (compound or traditional recurve bow) with the string as the land and the bow the arch. The arrow head as the north star. Maybe some type of farmhouse with forestland, not farmland.

In my first two uploaded image, there's some crops, a deer, a farmhouse/man and forest. I'm open to any suggestions and not married to my boring sketches. Another option is have the native American hunter hold the bow and arrow and use some other frame to make the circular logo.

Upload 3: A drawn bow could represent a heart shape or a diamond shape. The real addition to this sort of logo would present the tree and root structure as the arrow itself with crops on one side and man and animal on the other. Cedar tree?

A full circle logo or vertical oval is really my preference but I can't draw that well.
Please note, my company name is long, and hyphenated.
Also native-american styling is acceptable (ie traditional bow, peace pipe, feathers, cornucopia) but not necessary.

The real issue to me is how to keep the text big and legible and still have some elements that symbolize my business description above.

Thank you so much for your help. I'm sure you know what you're doing better than I can describe it.

User upload:

similar to the other upload except...Different bow style. The feathers of the arrow replace the hypen and the farmhouse is replaced with a Native-American man with feathered headdress. Yeah.
The bow as the arch and the string as the land. The arrowhead as the north star. The elements under the arch are some crops, a deer, a farmhouse (looks like a man, which would be preferable, too) and forestry. The circles are the pulleys(cams) of a compound bow. Not needed. This is just my basic idea, please submit better, more creative stuff, but with similar elements.

Hello, It's my first time using this site. I have two questions: Should I give feedback now or wait until I choose the finalists? Is it rude or impolite to click not interested alone, or should I leave a comment saying why? In these cases, I already know, I want to work with other designers who are closer to the mark. Any advice on how to eliminate the worst, guide the best and select the winner would help. I do see a few really good options already. Should I wait for more? thanks
