What magazines do you get?

Recommended Posts

I let the subscription go on Field and Stream a couple of years ago.  It seemed to me it was about 75% ad revenue that I was paying for.

Only thing I still get is American Hunter from my NRA membership, which is little too......  propaganda-tastic for me to take seriously.  Some of the articles are OK.

I was glancing through some while I waiting for my barber to get done yacking today, and there's a ton out there.

You guys do any magazine subscriptions?  I'd like stuff about QDMA/plot management, new rifles, etc.  Any suggestions are appreciated!

i've bailed on all those. used to get them for years though. Quality Whitetails that you get with a QDMA membership is where it's at. Learn stuff versus looking at antler porn and pictures.

Yeah I'm going to sign up with them soon.  Buddy has been telling me to for years.  I get the feeling the older my kids get the more I'm going to get into plotting etc.

Whitetail institute has a decent one that comes out a few times a yr. Other than that American Rifle, that one I rarely look at.

Deer And Deer Hunting, North American Whitetail, Outdoor Life, Bowhunter, Field And Stream, Guns And Ammo, and a few others over the years. With all the advertising and paid product endorsements, I've lost most of my interest in magazines.

For Christmas, my grandsons give me a subscription to D&DH and F&S. I do flip through them, and occasionally still find a good article or two.

I got a subscription as a gift and I think the gifter really does not like me so it would be a gift to give. Other than that I wouldn't even look at it because of all the adds and articles about things I am not really interested in.

I subscribe to: The New York State Conservationist, Fur Fish & Game,  Trapper & Predator Caller, and Predator Xtreme. You can actually get Predator Xtreme for free if you apply on-line

None anymore. Used to get NRA's American Hunter, and NY outdoor news. 

Let outdoor news run out, and told NRA to keep their magazine when I renewed my membership.

None that I directly pay for. The NRA and NWTF send me a magazine for being a member. Seems like the days of magazines & newspapers are pretty much over, thanks to the internet.

I no longer subscribe to any of them, but get The National Rifleman with my membership. I might spend a total of 5 minutes reading that when it comes...it (like most of the gun magazines) just runs a cycle of what the new manufacturer of 1911s, AR 15s or a review of historical guns from whatever military action. The historical articles I used to enjoy, but they are all just rewritten information now. I have read enough on the M1 ( a fine and historical weapon) that it is like reading the same Louie Lamour novel a 100 times.

You can only read so many articles on "The 2nd Rut", or the .270. On occasion  I buy a magazine off the shelf, depending on contents. I enjoy Sporting Classics.  I do love to buy vintage magazines, esp. from before the 1980s, particularly 1960 and earlier. It is amazing how many national magazines have articles of local (ny) interest, and the articles hold my attention better. Especially the hunting articles tend to tell more of the experience than todays " we went hunting, shot a world class bugaboo with a 6.5 whatsit, thank goodness we had our newest and best ….."

The articles would tell a lot more of where they were going, why, what they saw...the actual experiences of the hunt, not just a kill oriented narrow focus. 

 

Contrary to what people think, the old magazines have just as much, or more advertisements than we remember. the difference is now the ads tend to be bigger and probably more expensive, so there are fewer of them.
