Here's the cover.

I didn't realize til just now, but you can download the phone/tablet app and get a 30 day trial that lets you read the current issue before you decide whether you want to spend $9.99 for the year or not. I know a lot of you prefer a hard copy, understandably, but for those that don't mind reading on a phone or tablet it's a pretty good setup.

I can't imagine any traditional archer not reading TBM. ;o)

From: George D. Stout
Date: 22-Jun-22




David, I really don't read any magazines nowadays. I was an original subscriber and even sold them at my shop when they first came out. After a while, with any magazine, the contents become the same redundant material just written by different folks, the old Jim and John went hunting thing. Nothing personal toward the TBM family, it simply became something I quickly looked through and stuck in the rack. Now the cost has become too high for me to justify paying for something I likely won't read anyway. I've read thousands of magazines over the years of my life, so I'm good now. :) Others can decide for themselves.

I, too, thought it was a great cover pix and tribute to Ron. He was a good one. And the edition was pretty darn nice, as well. I wish them a long publishing life in representing the traditional community of archery we enjoy so much. Including the memories of those like Ron LaClair and others before and to those who follow him.

Great Picture

Scoop x2. I also have subscribed to TBM for years and will continue to support them. I remember in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, before internet, they were about the only publication where trad archers had access to vendor resources, trad bow hunting resources, etc. TBM is committed to keeping an actual, hold in your hand magazine in an era that printed material is going by the wayside. So, I also hope they are around for my grandkids to read. Sorry, aside from my soapbox, I appreciate them memorializing Ron LaClair on their cover.

great pic and great mag. I will agree with George that after some years youve read about every story and topic several times. Honestly I enjoy the back issues the best and often order some.

From: Andy Man

Kinda like George

Started with the first issue and renewed several times

Then sameness took effect and lost interest

I too have had a subscription to Traditional Bowhunter since the beginning.I still look forward to every issue.Im an old man but Im always trying to learn and many of the writers in TBM are excellent.I didn’t know Ron but I met him once and I have hunted with his bows.Im glad TBM put him on the cover.I also enjoy the Me and Joe went hunting stories.I’ve been bowhunting over 50 years and at some point every year I feel like a beginner.I will never stop trying to learn.

From: JTK

I accumulated a lot of them, gave them away to people who treasure them (I hope). Many of us have learned a lot thru it. I designed/built quivers based only on low quality snapshot that appeared somewhere in TBM. Might be risky to sit on your throne with a plugged-in laptop and for old guys smart phones can be challenging.

Trad is the repetitive heart of archery. How much is new?

I am a subscriber have been for 10 years and I still like the magazine. I changed address back in October and have not seen one since. I did the change of address thing twice. I feel just a little cheated on this yrs subscription…opr8r

That is a very nice cover picture of Ron

Nobody ask if you read it he said it was a nice cover of Ron L on TBM

Thanks for the pic.

Nice tribute to him for the community.

Well said GUTPILEPA, A very nice tribute to Ron LaClair by TBM both have done so much for Trad community and Bowhunting.

From: tradmt
Date: 23-Jun-22




Yeah, I’m going to keep a subscription, I like the content, even though it may be a bit redundant but many things are. I like seeing the grandkids pick them up and flip through the pages. I also enjoy going through my old stockpile sometimes. Good stuff.

I haven’t opened the new one yet but I’m sure it’s a nice tribute to Ron.

I too am not a magazine reader. I get two that come along with my memberships, American Rifleman and Duck Unlimited, but read each in 5 minutes, leave sit around on the breakfast bar and discard them.

From: DanaC
Date: 24-Jun-22




I only get a few magazines nowadays and I don't read them all cover-to-cover, but I'll at least do a quick scan of the articles.

I like to leave my used copies of TB at one of the clubs I belong to. Never know when somebody might pick one up and get bitten by the bug ;-)

always look forward to my tbm coming and my old folks magazine "reminisce"! great soul searching articles in this issue of tbm in my opinion. of course i'm just an old codger from Iowa... that might make a difference! lol

Nobody ever suggested that there is anything wrong with enjoying it!

George has a point, surely… but there’s nothing wrong with that. Guys who are new to this side of the sport need something like that, both for the knowledge of who the potential vendors are, and to get them sufficiently indoctrinated into our “old-school“ kind of ways.

After all… We humans have been doing the same thing for probably over 10,000 years, so what do you really expect to find that is “new“…? And sometimes, a good hunting story about “Jim and John“ really hits the spot.

And I don’t know that there are too many people who are as deserving of a spot on the cover of that one as Ron. Larry, of course. Don Thomas, probably…. many years from now, we hope. But it’s a damn short list.

From: tradmt

I would wager there’s a long list of names of people we’ve never heard of that could be on that cover, some likely more deserving than the ones we have heard of.

Nobody's more or less "deserving"...its a magazine and it needs simply to draw attention. :-) ..

I don’t think Traditional Bowhunter put Ron LaClair on the cover to get attention ans sell magazines.They are not sold in stores anymore.I think they did it to honor a man that has given a lot to the sport.There are some that feel the magazine is redundant and offers nothing new.I assume that these individuals have game rooms that are overflowing with antlers,horns and skulls.Maybe they should write a book so the rest of us can know everything too.And some seem jealous that Ron is on the cover hinting that perhaps others are more deserving.Be patient someday you too will pass on and maybe just maybe you will be on the cover.

Yes...but fyi the magazine actually IS sold by our main local archery store, which not incidentally does a huge business in Bear not to mention all sorts of recurve and longbows...and tunes wheels because everybody shoots them too.
