I sent an email to customer service this past weekend and they stated there kind of running slow this time. Didn't give a specific reason why.

never soon enough!

btw you know you can access the MRS online while you wait...


did the grizzly question/poll ever get published? when? I've missed it so far... perhaps march issue? haven't read it/seen it yet.

they need a poll question every month if you ask me!

Im still waiting by my mail box! Mine seemed later last couple months too. Thought maybe I was just more anxious to get the MRS this time a year. I will say Eastmans is the only magazine that you dont get the march issue in december atleast!

Cuz they pay a little extra under the table. lol. Na prob has to do with USPS and how close they live to where it ships from.

I got mine last week, it did say that the Nevada MRS will not be in the issue due to the Nevada G&F not having quotas set in some areas. That migth explain why its late they were probably waiting until the last moments to try to get that info in this issue. It also said that the Nevada MRS will be in the next issue.

Stopped by the Eastmans booth at our local show that started today. He called Ike and the march issue is running late but should be her very soon! Ike himself just got his yesterday (he subscribes himself to keep track of when it actually comes in!). Also foundout they are mailed to us from Denver, Co. Mine hasn't come yet, hopefully I will see it tomorrow!

Not here still in MT. I wonder why there is such a difference in when people get them? I can see a few days or a week, but several weeks difference seems a little over the top.

No mag yet, had to call to get the last issue. At least you can look up the MRS online.

Monday and still nothing in the mail.

Its funny there has been no response from the Eastman's crew regarding the topic. I thought for sure they would have said something regarding the mixup. It has been two weeks between those reporting they received there copy and those of us who have not. Seems like that is a pretty big gap for a magazine delivery.

Still nothing here. The first two issues I recieved when I started my subscription came like clock work. The 4th of the month both times. But the last two I had to call them cause of not recieveing them. Hope I don't have to wait much longer!!!!

I have not received my last two EBJs. This has happened to me at least 5 times over the last 2 years. Often times i dont know i missed an issue until i realize one was skipped or someone on a forum starts talking about one. When i email or call customer service they send one out right away, but it shouldnt come down to that so often. CS said its been a problem for Cali subscribers. Eastmans need to address the problem.

Since I was "called out" for not explaining this situation, I figured I better make an appearance and explain things. We actually have no idea or have any hand in why the EBJ 70 was so late. We sent it to the printer February 15th. And for the record, our printer is in Kentucky. Now, usually the magazine gets there, they set the presses on day one and then start printing on day two. The magazine is usually palleted and ready for shipment within one week. Guy wills start getting the magazine 2-3 weeks after we send it to the printer. They do come from east coast, so naturally, the further west you are, the slow it will be getting to you.

We've never had an issue this "late" to you guys. The only thing we can say is blame in on USPS. It is catalog season and maybe that's why there has been in delay in the system. To put it in reference for you, I've already sent off the Sheep Issue two weeks ago and it's already in the mail stream and some guys have gotten it already.

Sorry for inconvenience guys/gals, we really wish this stuff wouldn't happen. We made phone call after phone call to the USPS and wwere told nothing more than it's in the mail stream. Our printer hit the trucks in time and made the first drop weeks ago. Why it's taking/took so long, is beyond us.

Thanks for the dedicated readership.

Thanks for the update.

If we call are you able to track our issue and see if/when it was mailed?

Adam
03-28-2012, 10:14 AM
Sorry JN...can't track individual magazines. Basically they're put on pallets and sent west. When they hit the distribuition centers, they separate the pallets and away the magazines go. If you want, go ahead and call Customer Service and Melanie will get you one coming today, if you wish.

Thanks for the explanation, Adam. Shocking to hear the good ol' USPS may have dropped the ball. That never happens ...

I think in efforts due to the higher gas prices recently the postal service may have perhaps brought back an older method of delivery to save on costs. I think I saw him a while back watering his horse but he's left now and should be there soon.

"The mail must go through." :D
