Desperate for readers, huh?
I can't stay silent on this anymore. I totally agree with General Forrest. First, S.I. started their bikini girls addition that now has become almost a semi-nude pictorial.
As a young lad, I cherished it when I was able to get my hands on one of my buddy's father's discarded copies of OL. My father didn't subscribe to any hunting magazines let alone much hunting, period. The writings of Jack O'Conner filled my head with all of the fantacies I ever wanted. I don't think that there was an article or ad that I didn't glean with my eyes throughout the entire magazine. Many of the articles instilled the knowledge and character I retain today, some 50 odd years later.
Now, I too, have had to play censor to a magazine I have subscribed to for over 40+ years. I don't want my grand kids asking me any more questions about "do girls have to wear bikinis when they hunt things?" My 9 year old granddaughter hit me with that one not so long ago. In looking back at some of the old OL mags I have kept and, comparing them with the newer ones I've received of late, realize advertisers have changed tremendously and the total page count has diminished. I'm aware that publishing companies are in the business to make profits but, is this format really necessary? It doesn't make my hunting/fishing better-half very happy. In fact, she's the one that pays my subscriptions and has asked me if I still want to read OL any longer. Like the Playboy subscription I've tried to convince her I like for the articles, am I going to have to try and convince her I like OL for the articles as well?
Love that wet rack :-) your shorts are my favorite color,
Attention is no problem here!!!Sounds like a fun way to spend an afternoon besides the chance to aquire some fine knife handles& take in the scenery also.
wow wat is wrong with you people
That girl steaphanie is smok'in hot! They need women like that in OHIO,who like the outdoors AND ARE EYE CATCHER'S!! any taker's?
Up here, if someone dressed like that to "enjoy" the outdoors, the black-flies would reduce them to hamburger in ten minutes! Outdoor Life does not need this kind of negative attention to cover hunting issues. The Outdoors Lifestyle now includes some extremely top-notch female hunters and anglers who deserve our respect and admiration...even when fully-clothed. Reducing them to a matter of T&A to bolster sales is something Hollywood would do. And I really want to believe we're better than that.
Very nice rack.She can come look for sheds on my place any day.
my kind of women
Okay, look, how 'bout looking for sheds in my neighborhood girls? Yeah I know it's Las Vegas but maybe, just maybe you can try. City elk, anyone?
They ARE beautiful, but I agree with country boy... not a realistic portrayal of an elk shed hunter.Keep it real... have any of you shed hunters out there ever seen another shed hunter dressed that way? They would be out of place in real elk shed country, except the horse,(and a bit nippleier too!)
come on boys if you want this stuff get a girl friend (or a wife)!!! Let OL show us hunting!!! we are supposed to be hunters not just a bunch of guys drooling over some pics of boobs. no wonder anti-hunters are winning over us! get ahold of yourselves and be MEN!! let this stuff happen in the bedroom. Get yourself some self-respect!!!
now here is an outdoor calendar that we can all appriciate, minus the older man who i agree with somewhat
is it wierd that i want to marry half of these women? just wondering.
Some of these women are hotties; others would look a lot better after spending three weeks in the Alaskan outback.
Yeah, but can she skin a opposum, or cut cordwood ?
The down fall of our nations kids is'nt the fault of mags, its the parents.
I think im in love lol :o
Come on guys (OD staff). It's bad enough that my neighbor's young kids and my own grandson has to read your magazine with the "male enhancement" ads ripped out, but now you've got women in bikini's. Seems to be that men who want to look at scantily clad women can spring for another magazine.
I may be an old fuddy duddy to some of you, but for sixty plus years, I've watched the moral structure of our society unravel at the seams. OD is doing us no favors by causing some of us to withhold their magazine from our young would be hunters and fishermen/women.
that is a helluva rack!
Wow, I just had a feeling I wasn't looking in the right places....
Nice racks! ;)
What ? No moose or deer antlers in that part of the country? They must not be looking hard enough.
NOT hoe but HOW do I join the hunt?
Hoe do I join the hunt?
#9, you have my vote. I'd shed hunt with you in the driving rain. Very beautiful.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! THATS ALL I GOTTA SAY....
Heya Cowgirl , woooohooo
"shed hunting hotties"? Where'd you pull that term from? Is this like 1985???
A picture is worth a thousand words - I am little, uh, concerned though about the horse being in picture 2. I've heard stories.
elkslayer, YES, we do! It looks like she has a good place to hunt sheds, too.
sure-got my attention. Butt we need to keep it real.
Well I say that #7 got my attention, and the cmment from rickwv; who knows maybe they actually like doing the things they are posing for, maybe they actually do the things they are posing as just as well. Great photo's
do we really need another outdoor bikini calendar?
they got my attention!!!
Some will do anything for attention:
I am almost teary eyed with the admiration for these young ladies and their willingness to do such good work for the planet.
Heads-N-Sheds started in May, 2006 after Stephanie entered a few shed hunting pictures in a photo contest. The response was so swift, she took the idea and turned it into a calendar, stickers, shirts and more.
