  • Did anyone read the thing about the new Outdoor Life line of products?

    Maybe they're trying to make up for declining magazine sales? Maybe just branching out. Whatever the case, I kind of like those sweatshirts with the old cover art. I wonder if they offer them with Natalie Krebs's autograph across the back?

    Link to the Thing Below.

    I have read it. I thought Sears and Bonnier Corp had past collaborations.

      I checked on some items, thought I might send a gift certificate to a great nephew getting into the Boy Scouts, these prices are a bit steep. 35dollars for a little flashlight that straps on your head ? 25dollars for a t shirt, just because it has a deer picture on it ? No thanks, I don,t mind spending But I want value for my bucks.

        Matt, I bet Natalie would sign your shirt if you paid to ship to her office. Great Idea! I may do that myself :-D

        Natalie, what address should we use to ship shirts to you for an autograph?

        Thanks in advance!

          Bonnier has referred to it as an "alternative revenue source." Media companies across the board are trying to diversify revenue streams in this chaotic digital age so that all of our eggs aren't in the advertising baskets. We used to have a partnership with Sears, which did well for us, but I believe that contract expired and they decided to bring it in house. Some of the prices on the new stuff do seem a bit steep, although the products are more premium than the Sears line, which accounts for some of the up-charge. I think they're also trying to partially target backpacking customers with these products and prices. Meanwhile, I've been trying to convince someone here to sell old-cover posters for ages. Finally gave up a few years ago and just got some printed myself to hang around my office cube and apartment. I accept payment for autographs in the form of backstrap, burger, and/or fillets.

            Great idea to frame the cover posters. That could indeed be another revenue source.

            Are there any special NYC food regulations we need to be aware of before shipping venison your way? Or, would you rather come to dinner next time you're in Birmingham?. PigHuntress is a great cook :-D

              I tried ordering a bow stabilizer on Amazon yesterday and regulations wouldn't allow it to be shipped to Brooklyn. Real meat from a real dead animal might make someone's head explode. I'll take you guys up on the dinner invite if and when I ever make it to Birmingham. No take backs!

                Backstrap? For an autograph? Wow, everyone, check out the ego on Natalie!

                    Natalie, I love those bear photos on the covers of those Outdoor Life magazines, in your posted photo. ?
                    Where are the wild pig OL cover frames in the bathroom? LOL, Just Joking!
                    I remember your black bear video, also. Your are a bear person. ?
                    Anymore bear hunts planned in the future?

                      Matt—I always heard you weren't a real outdoor writer until you developed an obnoxious ego. Just trying to do my job And I don't have any dedicated bear hunts planned, Gary, but I am hoping to run into one this fall. My NY deer camp has a bunch running around this summer, so the odds aren't bad.

                        Gosh, the Mad Dinger even hit Natalie. Maybe he doesn't like the cover art?

                          I noticed that too Matt ! Now maybe that the dinger has also struck such an important figure (figure not to be taken literally) there will be some sort of retribution in the offering that will protect also us lower scale unworthies of such abuse !!

                            I would have to agree with you 6p. It would appear that it is not only a leaping deer, it is also leaping prices ! I am afraid there would need to be more than a leaping deer to warrant $25-28 being spent. But then maybe my financial diet is not the same as for others who do not associate costs to returns !

                              Treestand and JhJimbo, told me to hunt black bear in New York a few times on this site.
                              Thanks to NJ Governor Murphy banning bear hunting on state land, I may look into southern part of NY.
                              Good Luck hunting Natalie.
