Yeah that's more than a little disappointing, isn't it?

Does anyone even read F&S anymore? :bdid:  Last time I looked in one it was like looking through a catalog.  Nothing but product endorsements... I guess now I know why. 
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I don't believe that is correct.

Bob, if you continue to waste our time with facts, you'll face a permanent ban. You're on notice!

There was a copy at my doctors office I tried to read when I was an hour early for my appointment. I tried to read a couple articles and they were all garbage. Very dissapointed glad I stopped my subscription years ago when at least a couple things were still left reading in there

Actually looking into it further, there is a Field and Stream store but has no affiliation with the magazine.
