Sept. Northwest Sportsman Coming Out, Plus 2 New Mags!

AW: God, could you grant me an extension on autumn – like maybe make it two or three months longer?
God: Time stops for no man.

AW: How about an extension on this Editor’s Note?
God: That’s actually up to your press foreman – who just emailed, by the way.

AW: D’oh! But my main problem here, big guy, is that there’s just so much to do this time of year! It’s impossible to hit all these fisheries and do all these hunts that we’re writing about in our September issue – Tillamook Chinook, Cowlitz salmon, Willamette Valley doves and geese, Straits and Everett coho, ocean bottomfish, Cascades bucks …
God: Decisions, decisions.

SEPTEMBER 2010 NORTHWEST SPORTSMAN. THAT'S ERIC BRAATEN UP TOP WITH A MUZZLELOADER MULEY, SENT IN FOR OUR HI-VIZ PHOTO CONTEST, AND DOWN LOW IS HEATHER LUSK WITH A BIG COWLITZ CHINOOK FROM 2009, CAUGHT WITH SWANNY'S GUIDED FISHING.

AW: How about cloning me? What do you think about that? Maybe like make one me who can go deer hunting up to Okanogan County, another to hit the middle Rogue for steelies, another to stay home and help Mama with the boys, another to finish up work on the shed – actually, two or three more AWs for that last one, I’m not so good with hammers and power equipment. I could get so much done!
God: Mr. Walgamott …

AW: Look, it’s not my fault. You did a fantastic job on fall – your absolute best work, bub – but there’s blessedly little of it to go around!
God: Bub?

AW: Sorry.
God: Ever hear of living vicariously?

AW: Yar.
God: I think that’s the solution here. You hit the Okanogan, some of your readers go fish the Oregon coast, some hunt the Coast Range …

AW: … Err, sorry to interupt, sir, but the press guy’s really anxious to get this thing rolling.
God: And I’m anxious to get fall going too.

NEW MAGAZINES This month, Northwest Sportsman is also launching two new titles.

We recognize that a fair number of you are traveling sportsmen, which is why we’re launching Alaska Sporting Journal, a quarterly magazine dedicated to getting you, the Seattle/Portland/Spokane/Eugene angler and hunter, to the Last Frontier.

THE PREMIER ISSUE OF ALASKA SPORTING JOURNAL!

Written by Alaska insiders, we prep you for the trip of a lifetime to such destinations as Sitka, the Kenai Peninsula, Bristol Bay, and more!

We’re also putting out our first map book, a compilation of some of our best maps from our first two years – and then some. All totaled you’ll find 39 steelhead, Chinook, bass, walleye, bottomfish, turkey, elk and deer maps in the Northwest Sportsman 2010 Atlas

THE FIRST ISSUE OF NORTHWEST SPORTSMAN ATLAS.

Check newsstands around the Northwest for all three products! –Andy Walgamott
