    Western Hunter Magazine

    Hey, does anyone know what happened to several of the guys from Eastman's Magazine, going to the Western Hunter
    Magazine?? Did they get run out of the country, or depart on good terms to start new careers??
    I have read both magazines for a few years now, but since Western Hunter has some former Eastman guys on board,
    there are some things in Western Hunter, that are very Eastman like..
    Any thoughts??

    That's kind of what I was thinking of the new Elk Hunter Magazine, looks a lot like Eastmans. They may have taken some ideas and put them in there own mag. Maybe that is why I like Elk Hunter Magazine too! I have always liked to keep up with what Nate Simmons is doing. When he disappeared I was bummed, then when I saw him as the backcountry editor in this mag, it was great, he is full of information.

    I knew Nate and Adam were at Elk Hunter mag. It was kept very quiet when Nate left. I thought Eastmans might have said something about it but didn't. I read somewhere that Nate left to spend more time at home with the wife and persue his own independent writing career. Then he poped up at Elk hunter. I figured he's probably not working as much and maybe more money. The money part might be a streach with Guy saying on the newsletter that Eastmans is the largest hunting publication in the world. I really like Nate and wish him the best.

    Well, western hunter could do nothing but improve IMO. Their publishing schedule was sporadic at best.

    This may not be the place to say it, but in my opinion, Ryan (with the help of his staff of course) has put Western Hunter at the TOP in a very short time. Yeah matte finished covers may be cool and all, but grainy over-edited photos and extremely short, anti-climatic stories have made it hard for me to even open an Eastman's here lately.

    I agree. I quit subscribing to Eastmans' quite a while ago and jumped over to Elk Hunter. Elk and Western Hunter are great magazines.
