Good move by Les and I look forward to reading his articles in D&DH.  However, I feel he is slamming the " Pro ( Promotion) Staffer " pretty hard in that article and I am  offended by it. He is painting all Pro staffers with the same brush, like we are all out to make a buck and do what ever it takes. There are a lot of very hard working, dedicated people out there that have been working in the " industry" for years. They offer their advice, share their experiences and promote products they use and believe in. The Pro Staffer is an ambassador for the company. They don't get paid to do this and to suggest that they are getting their pockets padded by corporations is a lot of nonsense.

I don't view this as an attack on all Pro Staffers. What you say is true of many, but the point he is making is that some are mere celebrity endorsers.

One the question of Les Davenport coming over to D&DH, hasn't he written lots of articles for D&DH already? Without checking to be sure, I think I've seen his stuff more in D&DH than in NAW.

When the Everyday Hunter isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.

For about two years I was glued to the T.V. all season (if I couldn't be out hunting) to watch any and every hunting show I could find. But then it wore off. Too much of the same faces, shooting the same big deer at the same ranches. Poor hunters, have to pass on a 160 inch 5 year old buck because "its not what we're looking for". That gets old real fast.

The only show I now watch is Deer and Deer Hunting, and for the same reason its the only magazine I can bear to pay for anymore: it's not just a bunch of "pros" shooting big bucks on ranches. It teaches you how to hunt, it doesnt just show off the trophy of some other guy, who by the way, is pretty disappointed that his B&C buck isnt the biggest in the country. Oh well, better luck next week in the next state. I get one tag a season. Don't preach at me about how hard it is to hold out and wait for the end of the week hoping to see a bigger one. Whats on TV and in many of the other magazines is sciece fiction compared to how hunting is for me, and its that way for most other people I know with their tiny private property and dwindling public land options. I DVR the D&DH shows and watch them a couple times, and then watch them all over again when the DVD comes in the mail. I have every issue of D&DH magazine I have ever bought, because they are a hunting resource, not just a bunch of pats on the back for the pros. I work hard for my money and with a family, every dollar has to go a long way. But I have no hesitation writing out that check for my D&DH subscription because its an investment that pays me back every single time I hit the tree stand.

To say the least, I agree with Les. Glad to know he joined the D&DH team, where a complete staff of outdoor lovers like himself are, I'm sure, eager to work with him.

It's awful funny I just started a post before this deal with LES come about and some same people who responded to LES DAVENPORT'S move to be great and new respect was earned for davenport said some different thing's on my post when I was simply stating some of the same things davenport had said. I should have used the word CORPORATE AMERICA instead of big money or wealthy people and then some may have understood [8|] Anyway, LES great article and I am glad someone else said it other than a few of us regular joe's because it seems to grab the attention of more people. Thank you for your honesty, and the point of the children really struck home with me because that was what I was trying to get at with my POST. before this deal came about with you I didn't think there was anyone one left in the industry with MORALS, Thanks again for doing what was right [:D]

hookset6969, that is funny, but this regular joe here understood you well.  In addition, I'm glad Les agrees with you too - LOL!  I also believe that a lot of those "hunting porn stars" had to do it like we average joes do....., they quit their job because it takes more than name brands and corporate sponsorships to have success in the whitetail world.

I used to get about 5 publications but am down to two, NAW and D&DH. They are about whitetail hunting, my passion, and I about fell off the couch when I saw the turkey article. I tried explaining it to my wife but she didn't understand what I was saying. NOW IT MAKES SENSE!
I'm going to keep getting the mag, I totally agree with EverydayHunter about getting strategy out of the stories, and enjoy reading how "average" joes connect with great bucks, as long as they don't keep having turkey articles in it that is.
