There are lots of outdoor magazines and they are as responsible as anything for informing most outdoorsmen about new outdoor ideas an methods. But, for the most part, they are not all that useful.
My dad thinks that there are about six different fishing articles and each new article is just a variation on one of those six. I talked to a muskie fishing guide this past year who says he doesn’t know how he comes up with anything to write for the magazines he regularly writes for. He says that he doesn’t bother reading them because they are not all that useful.
Magazines are nothing but pictures of things that you can’t have.
But magazines are useful for learning about new products which you learn about the existence of in the advertising.
That lack of useful information in hunting magazines is one of the reasons why I started this blog. I eventually hope to have all the information you might need right here.
