This year with our tax return we will pay some bills and put the money to good use, we will treat ourselves to a couple things we want also, I was thinking about a lifetime subscription to a hunting magazine.

What magazine to you guys reccomend?

Traditional Bowhunter Magazine

Just go pick up a copy of it somewhere and read one subscription. You will like it regardless if you are a compound guy or a traditional guy. It is a great look at hunting without all the gadget ads, and articles on the fastest bows on the market. Its right down to hunting. and not just deer either.

I currently only have one magazine subscription -- Bowhunter Magazine. I've been a subscriber for many years, and really enjoy the articles their guys write.

I used to read Whitetail Hunting Strategies (for Brad Herndon's articles), but no one carries it locally anymore. I used to subscribe to it, until they messed my subscription up once and never got it rectified. I never went back. :(

Thumbs up for Indiana Fish and Game. It has everything a well rounded hoosier outdoors PERSON could want. A little of everything.

Magazines!!!

Hi fellers, You just knew I'd show up on this thread didn't you. Good choice Rookie!!! O.K. O.K. except for a few (maybe just one...) opinionated, arrogant, self righteous, know-it-all, jerk outdoors writer, I'd have to say that North American Whitetail is the best whitetail publication on the planet. The good news is that Gordon doesn't write for the magazine as much as he used to. Gotcha Gordonis...I thank you!!

The other top choices go to...

1) Indiana Game and Fish...The guy who writes the deer articles on there is impressive. He really seems to know his stuff!!!:coolgleam But he can't spell very well and his grammar is rough. Thanks Editors!!!

2) Walleye Insider...Love those 'Eyes.

3) Outdoor Life...Always been good!!!

4) Whitetail Strategies...Expensive but informative.

5) Deer and Deer Hunting. A perennial favorite.

6) RACK magazine. No, not the kind that rookie suggested.

7) Bowhunter, Vertical Bows only please!!

And, several others...

I would say North American Whitetail, but no my focus has shifted to habitat improvement so my readings have wondered all over. Pheasants Forever's magazine has nice habitat improvement ideas in it that you don't see in deer hunting magazines. jbwhttail, any more info on the QDM magazine. I ddin't know one existed.

I second the recommendations for Quality Whitetails. Free with your QDMA membership of $30/yr.

Now six issues per year!

It is so worthwhile, I've saved every issue for the past 6 years. In contrast, I toss my D&DH and NAW mags after a few months.

If you do most of your hunting and fishing in Indiana....I can think of no better publication than Indiana Game & Fish. I have been a subscriber for well over 15 years.


The majority of their coverage is Indiana and they don't get into alot of issues that split hunters. They normaly ALWAYS have a feature story on a successfull trophy....tips on "how to" and I love the camera corner.

Give it a try, you won't be disappointed
