Just curious if anyone reads this publication. We buy it at either a local gas station or at the local tractor supply company. This issue had an article about a 1 1/2 lb. wood pack that can carry 30 to 40lbs easy. There is a bunch of backwoods lore and such. We find it quite legend only but still interesting back country knowledge. (don't know any other way to describe backwoods legend and lore)

So, are we the only readers?

You wont find the latest gear advertisements in there.
The Backwoodsman magazine is more geared towards bushcraft than anything else IMO.

It is not filled with the latest and greatest gear but some interesting articles. we've been reading it for about a year or so now and have found it both informative and entertaining. They usually have a story about some old bushman who did nothing but live off the land and the grid. Some of it we find to be lore but there is always some good information on backcountry survival. Heck, they even had an article about making shine. :) And we're wondering if putting a penny on a bee sting works.

And I've not seen it next to the air freshners!! If you have a tsc nearby, you should be able to find a copy. Its published bimonthly, so the next one should be March.
