I’ve enjoyed reading and receiving your magazine since the ’70s. It was always realistic when it came to hunting, guns, bows, and other endeavors. But your publication has gotten to be the rich kids’ magazine. Yes, things cost more, but the prices of gear that you cover are beyond our dreams now. The cheapest compound in your bow test [Gear, August 2017] was $299; for crossbows, it was $649.
It’s no wonder both parents have to work. It’s also no wonder we aren’t recruiting and retaining hunters like we did in the past. Why do you always test and show the most expensive things out there? Most young people and others can’t afford what you think is normal. I just wish you were like the original writers of OL, who were everyday people.
