Does anyone read this great magazine? I just subscribed to it and I am very glad I did! It has great articles on muzzleloading, survival, woodslore and more. The mag. itself is very simple and do
muzzleloaderes not have many adds but nice articles. I hope to do a review on it and a few other reading materials in the future on my channel:

You can see the magazine at this website:

I have read it for years, dont subscribe just pick it up from time to time. I hate to spend money on magazines, the kind you read anyway, but love to read them. I always feel like I could have done something better with the money. Love the magazine though.

One of the best out there. Since the demise of American Survival Guide, it is one of two I read. The other is Backwoods Home.

Grit and Mother Earth News are also good though you will see instances of liberal propaganda from time to time there is some great stuff in there.

Backwoodsman is excellent as well and doesn't contain the Hippie crap.

Default Backwoodsman magazine.

I have been reading Backwoodsman magazine for years and is my favorite. I have every issue with the exception of #2 from 2001 back till the first issue of 1999 and I have the complete years from 90,91,92, I have a few issues from years 97,95, and 98. The oldest issue I have is #3 from 1984. I have 30 issues that I have duplicates of might be interested in trading with people for issues I don't have. If interested in working something out please send me a message. [email protected]

I have been buying off of Newstands since 1992. As far as I am concerned no other magazine begins to come close to whatever my reading requirements are. I have been depending upon The Backwoodsman Magazine for carefully researched information for nearly 22 years.

Ooops, never mind, I read the title and was thinking of a different magazine.

This magazine may have saved my life in a passive kind of way. It came into my life at a bad time and reminded me of all the things I like and keep me going. It was like rekindling a fire that's about to go out. I wish I knew about the magazine earlier in my life but I can still find back issues just fine. I like that it blends so many different topics that cater to people with the so called ' backwoods ' mindset.

One of the more useful ones I have subscribed to. Still get it. They listen to their readers and write articles that customers want. Recall the bigfoot article lately from people asking for it.

Lots of ideas to make things, re-use and recycle. Also they tend to keep it cheap and simple. Unlike the newer "survival" type of magazines that stress a $100,000 Jeep with a minigun mounted on top or another tricked out AR-15 with enough gear to equip a gun store added to it.
