Hello all, just wondering what other magazines you might recomend. Im a subscriber to both the Hunting and Bow Hunting Journal but i get throught them too fast and need something else to help fill the month. Im looking for something a little more techy with how toos and equip reviews. Thanks for the input.

Bowhunter Magazine

What? You mean there are other magazines besides Eastmans! Bowhunter, and Bow and Arrow are two of my favorites for technical stuff. I also like Trophy Hunter for stories.

I always wanted more of the stories. That's what prompted me to create a hunting stories website for the average hunters to share their tall tales.

In addition, I like Deer and Deer Hunting for the scientific aspect of the deer.

Huntin' fool is another good magazine but Eastmans is better IMO.

If we weren't supposed to eat animals why do they taste so good?!

I second Bowhunter, it's a great magazine. I cancelled Bowhunting America and Peterson's Bowhunting because there was too much crap like equipment reviews and advertisements. North American Whitetail isn't a bad mag, either.

For those of you that are intrested in CA. Relentless365 is a great magazine to add to your list of reading material. It's set up alot like Eastmans but it is all CA.

I'd suggest Rifle and Successful Hunter magazines for something that is good and not 100% bowhunting. I also highly recommend Sports Afield!

I get the following:

Relentless 365
Muley Crazy

I like Bugle as well just for Cameron Hanes articles and I get to look at elk country. I used to get Deer and Deer Hunting, but it just got to scientific and almost took the fun out of "hunting". Other than EBJ, EHJ, and Bugle I get Backpacker - its not a hunting mag, but they have good gear reviews and its fun to see what the granola eaters are up too!

I actually think Outdoor life has some good articles once in a while and its dirt cheap, so I keep a subscription going. I ordered western hunter and am totally dissapointed, never comes and isn't that good, Eastman's is the best around in my limited experience. Sports afield has some interesting reads, mostly about African game. Haven't seen a bowhunting magazine yet that is not 90% how to shoot whitetails out of your treestand, which interests me not at all.

agreed. I might think differently if I lived anywhere east of here and used a treestand a lot, but where I live ,other than about 3 trees, If I hung a treestand and then climbed up in it, it would turn into a ground blind anyway.

I honestly believe EHJ & EBJ are the best hunting mags for the Western hunter who may not think Whitetails are God's gift to the hunter. I also read Petersen's Hunting mag which is another top notch publication. I also signed up for Petersen's Bowhunting mag during a promo, which is nowhere near as good as their "Hunting" mag.

Huntin Fool is another great membership with personal attention and many other great resources. Bugle is good too
