How many read outdoor/hunting magazines??

Discussion in 'Community Forum' started by Little FR, Jan 10, 2022 at 10:32 PM.

Where do you read hunting articles?

  1. Magazines because I’m old darn it.

  2. Online, it’s not 1994.

  3. I like to glean from both sources.

  4. Videos, I let the narrator put emphasis on the correct syllables.

    Never understood why anyone would place reading material within a bathroom, ESPECIALLY writings upon a public bathroom stall wall. Just get in there, do your nasty business and get out with a quickness. It's not usually the most sanitary room, unless you or another family member happens to have OCD, and most toilet seats are not even comfortable for an extended period of time.

    Not for yeeeeaaars.....used to get Ky Gand F and NA Whitetail. Best part about Ky G and F was the candid pics in the very back that everybody would send in of their catches, captures, and kills,..I can see that here. When I decided I didn't need the rut broken down into 18 phases out went NAW. The calendar they sent with Ky G and F was nice though, not sure if they still send it.

    Well I chose magazines but I’m not old yet lol I was getting outdoor life/field and stream, and Petersens. I guess the fs/ol ran out but I’m still getting petersens. I don’t really get online to read articles, don’t listen to many podcasts, and only show I occasionally watch is hunting public on YouTube.

  6. Not for years, everything online now. The only print anything I get anymore is The Whole Seed Catalog that Baker’s puts out.

    My kids and I enjoy thumbing through and reading the Kentucky Afield together. That’s it.

    Yep, they still make the calendar but its not KY G and F, its Kentucky Afield. There is no Ky G and F anymore, its Midwest now and has articles about other states in it lol. You can order a calendar online, cost ya $7.50, I get one every year, love those old things.

    Haven’t read paper magazines in a while but I’ve tossed around the idea of going back to a dumb phone…if I do that, I’d probably pick them up again.

    I just got a smart phone a couple years ago. It was costing company $600 a year or so to keep buying me used flip phones. They just got me a life proof case and insurance on this fancy phone. It does great stuff like gps and photos but I miss not being so accessible and pondering a question instead of google.

    Still a quality Magazine!

    I despise the decline of journalism into advertisement of the latest gadget. I would much rather read a 40 year old magazine that had articles with interesting stories!

    I do watch lots of Youtube non commercial stuff.

    Steven Rinella used to be a breath of fresh air from the advertising, only subtle shots of brand or mentions…I don’t know if I’ve made it through one full podcast in the last year because that’s all it is, pimping the meat eater brand. I realized it was more about the money than the conversation/conservation when I dealt with some shit first lite products after he bought them out…one of the first real let downs in that industry for me.
