    Yep, I was excited when I saw that post(I made a comment on it, but it's gone now? interesting). I am just waiting a bit so that all the bugs can get fixed, but I am definitely looking forward to reading the early ones.

      The bugs are out now and I love it. Like many others here I was a big fan of Outdoor Life growing up and the recent issues of the 1950's and 1960's are blasts from my past. The 1890 and early 1900's are downright fascinating. First one I read had a story about what good exercise a Canadian hunt and fish trip is.(they knew something) Complete with original photos of characters, trains and canoes of the time period. Ads for the first combustion engine, auto loader etc. Never thought I'd be able to peruse all those original magazines. It's a real delight.

          Hey All - Thanks to charlie elk for pointing that out. It's such a cool collection of content - I hope you have time to immerse yourself in it. I've lost a few hours of my life in that archive, and I think you guys will love it. Check out the search function - that's one of my favorites - to just check out favorite authors, or places, or specific guns. Note that you have to pay to get all the content. But I'd like your feedback - positive, negative, neutral - so that we can help make it an even better experience.
          - Andrew McKean, editor

            These magazines are a look into unfiltered history. Been reading first few magazines 1899-1900. The articles and letters to the editor are debating the start of hunting regs, limits, seasons, which citizens should these apply to and the creation of national parks. Whether smoke powder (black powder) or smokeless gun powder is better. Thanks for getting these out for us to enjoy.

              An article titled Field and Flood told a story while providing how to. I miss this technique in most modern articles which so many times seem to be just advertising for whatever products. Wonder, this Field and Flood article have anything to do with the beginning of Field and Stream?

                Charlie Elk,
                Thank you for bringing Archives to my attention. I subscribed, and have enjoyed them so much. Outdoor Life is the first magazine I remember. I am 75, so going back through decades of publishing has been a trip down memory lane. Even the ads are great. Kindest Regards

                  I read with interest, August of 39 I believe, both Elmer Keith and Jack O' Connor had articles in that issue.

                    I'll check that out, I'm still reading early 1900 and enjoying the debates about setting up hunting regulations and seasons. The whole concept is new then.

                      Perhaps we should start a thread on the message board to discuss the gems we come across.

                        I commented on the Off Topic message board on these back issue offering. Like each of you I am very much enjoying the material and Imust repeat that anyone who is not checking on this is really missing out on something great. Have a look and you will be hooked within a few pages. It looks to be good business for OL particularly as the world of the printed page is on a downturn. Good for them and good for the readers, it should be a success!
