    I saw this on Facebook, that with new subscriptions they were donating $5 to Texas Parks & Wildlife Foundation this week so I thought that I would give it a try. It's a bit expensive at $35 an issue, thankfully it's only two issues a year. Will post a review after first issues arrives. Anyone already subscribe? Although with YETI as one of the corporate sponsors, I have more then a few reservations.

    Yeti sponsorship aside, this is an awesome magazine truly worthy of the $35 price tag.

    Production quality is very high, more like an art book.

    Articles are excellent, focused more on the hunting experience rather than kill shots, conservation and ethics rather than this camo brand or that.

    Highly recommended.

    Ok, I subscribe to lot of Magazines, (too many acording to my wife) some I pay for: Hunter’s Path, Sports Afield, Gray’s Sporting Journal, African Outfitter, African Hunting Gazette and now Modern Huntsman. And, some I don’t pay for: Outdoor Life, Field & Stream, Garden & Gun. So, I have a good idea of the what’s good and what not. Modern Huntsman is a cross between “youthful version” of Gray’s Sporting Journal and Garden & Gun without all the ads. The photography is excellent and articles are well written (writers all look 30 somethings) and thankfully no Boddington articles anywhere to be found. They are designed to be “keepers” (Hunter’s Path is a real keeper) with heavy stock paper and bound like an Apple Photo Book. I will give it 2-3 more issues to determine if I would subscribe long term, that’s assuming it can survive long term. At $35 an issue and no Ads, that remains to be seen. There is however sponsors product placement in the photos, those YETI coolers suck.

    I've had my second issue for a couple of weeks now. Volume Two is actually thicker then One. More articles and photos. Now the "sponsors" have a couple of ads in the front, but after that it's all meat and no filler.

    Black Friday special is $5 off either One or Two or both, or subscription. Discount code is BLACKFRIDAY.

    Well, I saw a Facebook post about Modern Huntsman and Toms. It has since been removed. So Google being my friend I did a little search. It appears one of the editors, Charles Post, teamed up with the CEO of Tom Shoes to promote Gun Control. I went to Mr Post's website and he has lots of outdoor sponsors (of course YETI being one of them). I am beginning to have second thoughts about continuing my subscription.

    Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I would prefer to spend my money with those more closely aligned with mine in the current Culture War, even if my side is losing.

    Thanks for the endorsement! I saw one of these at a friends home once but didn’t realize it was $35 an issue.
