I've been lurking around here for a couple of months after meeting Adam Bender in the Eastmans booth at the Pac. N.W. Sportsman show in February. Adam was really personable and took his time to visit with my wife and I at the show, we looked at the pictures of his splendid Cariboo and talked at length about a shared interest in a Cariboo slam.
Adam asked if I would be interested in a subscription to the Hunting Journals....something I was reluctant to do at first, explaining that I didn't really care much for most hunting magazines these days, too much hype and in some cases more than deserving reviews of products. I expressed to Adam how nice it would be to see an honest, informative evalution of the newer fabrics, technologies, and layering concepts in hunting apparel. I'm an older fella and I can't keep up with lot of this tech stuff, Adam remarked that an article was in the works and would be coming out soon along with the Oregon MRS. He also took the time to show and explain how the MRS worked.
Besides being so personable, I think Adam is a world class salesman because other than getting two cups of coffee for my wife and I, I subscribed to both Journals and I don't even bowhunt! it was the only money we spent at the show.
Well, I enjoyed the article on clothing and after lurking around here I like the comraderie and tone of the forum.
I apologize for being so long winded during an introduction, hopefuly I might be able to add something useful to the conversation.
