This may say a little cynical but at $100/year for a subscription, I doubt it! Unless Matthews is going to sell online subscriptions. Don't get me wrong I think the subscription is a fair price for the time and effort Matthews puts into scouting so I don't think he'll let the information go for free. I wouldn't mind hooking up with a couple of other people to start a subcription, with 4 people that's $25 a person, much less than a tank of gas.
That's exactly my concern. I'm am a subscriber to Western Birds and was just wondering if he was going to offer an online subscription. You are exactly correct - I don't think he'd let past issues be offered for free - at least I'd hope not!!!
Hey Fullsack, when was the last issue? I moved in January and have not seen anything since then. I emailed my change of address and also sent a letter. I thought there would have been another turkey hunting issue.
I also subscribe to Jim's Western Bird Newsletter. Best source of info on the subject IMHO. Worth every penny in other words.
Anyway, I talked to Jim, maybe 1 or 2 months ago (?) having the same questions everyone else above had. He was trying to come up with different idea's, one being what months to publish them. If I remember correctly, there was not going to be a spring / turkey issue this year as in the past and why none of us has received an issue yet this year.
I can't imagine Jim putting it on line for free. Naw!
