I agree...It all started with Eastmans, and its a nice thing that others are following their style. I believe competition is a good thing no matter what industry and it makes everybody "try harder" to succeed. Ive noticed that there are more guided and private land hunts being published, but it's really not up to Eastmans what stories get submitted to them. I think more of the backcountry hunters are probably sending their stories to these other magazines, which I enjoy also. I am a subscriber to EHJ, EBJ, and Extreme Elk, but have read elk hunter, and I think they are all good. To me it depends a lot more on the individual story than the magazine, and that's all up to the hunter who chooses where to send their story. As far as researching states and hunts, Eastmans is well ahead of the rest.
