    Mate I haven't picked up a hunting magazine in years. I used to subscribe to a couple but they lost me as an audience due to sameness between editions.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    It wasn't mine. But where I am staying has a few lying around for people to browse.
    The 2 mins of silence I get out of flicking thru one always leaves me feeling pretty remorseful and a bit cheap.😆

    Maybe the recent clean out of staff may make it better?
    But somehow how I doubt it.

    Have never read it, didn't know it existed till now, what is wrong with it?

    Maybe someone could start a thread about what we like/want/don't like in a hunting mag, and then deliver the findings to those that make the things.

    I stopped reading it when they started doing stories of canned hunts. But yeah as above, I haven't brought a hunting magazine in years, they're all the same

    It's all of them really. They are somewhat repetitive as Rushy mentioned as well. My pet hate is seeing strokefest pics.

    I like to think my son has been brought up hunting and fishing with sound guidance so that he can enjoy the outdoors and shooting if he wishes to, with a wee head start for the future.
    He has seen shitloads of animals, alive and dead. He has been hunting with some well grounded people.
    He is 100 times the marksman I was at his age.

    Yet unfortunately he reads some of these mags. (I will pierce my pecker with a rusty self tapping hexhead, if ya ever find one in my house&#128518
    And takes a lot of the stuff in them as gospel. They must know more than you and such and such coz they write for a magazine.

    I should swat up on some Playstation mags so I can pass on some annoying advice.

    Weird I was thinking about this very subject last night.

    It must be a tough industry when competing with free online information/data bases etc and the number of magazines being purchased would surly be in decline because of it?

    Most of my interest is in new equipment not so much story's.

    A review on a Tikka T3 in 243 is a bit ho hum this day and age..my pet hate is misleading titles..against my better judgement I buy thinking it will be different each time..."What to look for in a Suppressor" translates to a story about an ASE..

    That magazine is easily the worst,surprised it`s still on the market!
    Last time I looked at one it was mostly stories like "Uncle Bob and Cousin Dick go deer shooting" with too much swearing,references to drinking and some really shocking gory photos that should not have been published IMO.
    Our local Public Library was getting it for their magazine rack.Had a chat with the head librarian and now they subscribe to Rod and Rifle instead.
    Personally like NZ Guns & Hunting for the test reviews and ads. I don`t read the hunting stories.
