with a large amount of magazines on sale,which hunting related magazines do you subscribe to and why that choice ?
Thanks for your advice in advance
I subscribe to NRA Hunter, NAHC, QU, and Pointing Dog Journal. PDJ is the best of all of them hands down. I also like the PDJ forum also. Since we are on this fine forum, I suppose there is a Gun Dog journal but I don't know about it if there is. I like PDJ because I have no interest in retrievers and flushers.
PDJ, Gun Dog, and Field Trial magazine.
Shooting Sportsman - its a great one!
I subscribed to PDJ and got my first issue the other day....great mag!!
PDJ, Field and Stream, the Heartland, Ohio Valley Outdoors, the Family Handyman and I bum copies of Civil War Times from my dad when he is done.
I hardly have time to read them all before the next issue comes along. I have a backlog right now
American Field, Field Trial Magazine, Pointing Dog Journal, Shooting Sportsman, Sporting Classics.
I think the best of the best, carrying the info. and articles I'm interested in reading.
The Christmas Issue of the American Field comes out this weekend...Whoopee! Always looking forward to it. I've got Xmas issues going back to the 1800's.
PDJ,Field and Stream, Outdoor, Arizona Outdoorsman,Safari Club, American Field, The American Brittany get a few others but those are the ones worth mentioning
American Field, cause it is where I get field trial news, and GSP Chronicle for the same reason. I get Gun Dog Magazine cause I have subscribed since Issue One, day one. Other than that, I buy at the newstand after looking at what is in the issue. Have read most of the retread articles a few times by now, and so I avoid magazine issues with retreads. If there is something unique or interesting I will buy it.
American Field, Field Trial Magazine, and Guns & Ammo are my subscriptions of choice.
I recieve the Shorthair Journal and Versatile Hunting Dog for belonging to the GSPCA and NAVHDA respectively. Navhda will be expiring soon and will not be renewing.
Gun Dog and QU. That is about it.
PDJ and Field & Stream. F&S doesn't have too much for upland hunters though, but is still a good read. I dropped the North American Hunting Club because it had absolutely nothing for upland hunters. I just don't go on enough big game hunts to keep me interested in a mag like that. The annual whitetail doesn't get me that juiced up.
I got a free 1 year subscription to Outdoor Life for spending over $25 at Gander Mountain (had to buy an ATV battery). It was a choice between Outdoor Life and F&S, and since I already subscribe to F&S the choice was easy. Haven't gotten the mag yet though.
And I recently started getting Gun Dog as a gift and I gotta say, I like that magazine too. It helps that the second one I got there was a vizsla on the cover.
Really, though, I find the articles in Gun Dog to be very well written without a lot of the extra descriptive fluff that can sometimes clutter the meat of a story in some of the other mags. For example, if it takes the writer three paragraphs to describe the weather... I've lost my interest and end up flipping the pages looking for pictures.
feild and stream, outdoor
I get Versatile Hunting Dog with NAVHDA membership, and the RGS magazine that goes with RGS membership. That's it, because I barely have time to read 'em. I'm spending lots more time training my dog & fishing this summer, which is a good thing.
I do like PDJ, but currently do not subscribe.
I get American Field...the best
PDJ and Gun Dog. Both are good but have slipped in substance over the years.
As a NRA llife member, I get American Rifleman. Great legislative news on our gun rights.
I am member of VDD-GNA and get their very informative blotter/newsletter.
Finally, I get the GSP Chronicle Online produced by Arlene Waker. Great info and comes via email.
Outdoors Canada has a good mix of hunting and fishing
Pointing Dog Journal and Field Trial Magazine
PDJ,Gundog,Petersons Hunting,Field and Stream,and Predator Extreme.
American Field and Field Trial Magazine
The NAVHDA magazine, PDJ, and Grey's Sporting Journal (my favorite...I drool over the shotguns they advertise which are WAY beyond my budget)...along with Fly Fisherman, and Flyfishing in Saltwaters.
I get Gun Dog right now but when this subscription ends I'm going to switch to Pointing Dog Journal. I switch back and forth between American Rifleman and American Hunter. I think my next issue I'll start getting American Hunter. I travel a bit for work and when I'm out of town I'll stop by a bookstore and if there is something interesting in Shooting Sportsman or Upland Journal or something I'll pick up one of those.
PDJ, Upland Almanac and the American Field.
PDJ, Bass Masters, The American Brittany.
PDJ, NAVHDA magazine, Outdoor Life, Ruffed Grouse Society magazine, and the occasional Gundog magazine, Field and Stream, and PA Hunting and Trapping magazine.
PDJ, Shooting Sportsmen, Gray's Sporting Journal, Missouri conservationist, OLF, F&S, plus a few other's that are non-hunting related.
