    There is only 1 God. I know you don't mean disrespect but I just don't like it. The pictures look great.

    Bama....unless your talking Greek God(s). Or any of the countless religions across the planet that each have their own version of a "God"....

    But I do agree that I would leave that out of the piece. Everything else about it looks great.


    And by the way....I have one God Bama, so I do know where you're coming from.

    I like the pics that go along with the story and their layout, on the fence about the background.

    I dont like it. It makes it harder to read and its to flashy or something and gives me the feeling its a high dollar hunt and the guy is rich and the hunt would be out of reach of most hunters. It kinda reminds me of hunting illustrated.
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    I would prefer Eastman's not consider stories that aren't DIY. I am OK with stories that are on the family/friends ranch, but I would like to see stories stick to the idea of DIY and not paying big $$$ for access. I would rather read about how hard a guy worked, the hours spent scouting, family trips camping in the area, family out hunting together, back breaking pack outs, etc. I will be honest the first thing I look at on every story I read in Eastman's, is if it is DIY and public land. I could care less how big the animal is if it was on a guided hunt, I have nothing against guided hunts, but it doesn't interest me to read about them.

    I like the look as long as the words are still big enough to read. I like the others love the stories of diy, but some places you hunt require a guide and the animals they harvest deserve as much respect and a place in the magazine too.

    I feel it's just a little too busy. When you have all the colors behind the black print it's sometimes hard to read.

    I'd really like you folks to have one story about a kids hunt, or a kid or three hunting with mom, dad, relative, or what have you. No huge animal has to be taken, or even at all, it's about having them out with us and showing the great times we have. Many of those stories are precious beyond description about the things that happen, what they say, and what they do. Plus we are getting them involved in the outdoors, what could be better? This does not have to be written by the kids either, but a parent or friend, or someone else involved in the hunt. The prize or prizes should also go to the kids and not the adult author should that be the case. Anyone under 18 has a chance. Not a bad idea to try and have one article about our better half. That would be great to include one just for them.

    Leave the pictures to speak for themselves, i don't personally like the look of the text inside the picture.

    I really liked the pictures. The format didn't bug me like it did others but can see what there talking about.
