35. I have a similar take on F&S as well...

OL has more content on the gun-control issue (the October, 2012 issue has a self-defense w/ handgun article). But they aren't as overboard as the strictly gun aficianado press. F&S has regular pieces on industry threats to wildlife/hunting/fishing. The thing that keeps both (and other) outdoor publications in line are groups like Trout Unlimited and some hunting organizations which object to mining and drilling on hunting lands. Petersen's Hunting is much more conservative, saving its vitriole for anti-hunting groups. I like the much more expensive Gray's Sporting Journal (bi-monthly). Great articles on hunting, fishing, good fiction, photo essays, book reviews, art criticism -- even a poem. On slick card stock. Seems they are into hard copy for the long haul, even selling old-type magazine volume binders.

IMO, the biggest problem with the politics of outdoor sports/conservation is the split promulgated by "animal rights" advocates and gun-control advocates. This has been seriously damaging, wrenching apart groups who at least cooperated with each other in the past. I've read issues of the Big Two from the 60s, and there was little mention of liberal-conservative dichotemies, and environmental articles were not met with regular derision.

Good hearing from you. Back in action after my 'puter bombed in March. I even got a smart phone! (I was "SteveM" or "SteveW" since 2006.)
