    I spent so many blizzardy winter days and/or nights sitting near the woodstove with a coffee, reading and re-reading Hardings Magazine (Fur-Fish-Game) as a farm kid. I still subscribe, read and love it today, even though I am not able to pursue trapping much anymore. Anyone else have such good memories of this magazine?

    I think I remember it. Have to dig it out, if I still have it. Sometimes I give a copy away, to rural kids I know.

    That is great, Gardengrz. I had some of the books from the early '60's, but over the years, they disappeared. Really wish I still had them. It is still a good magazine, though. Check it out. Go to furfishgame.com, or go to Amazon and do a search.

    I still have a lot of those magazines from when I started subscribing back in the 60's and still do along with the Trapper paper from the time it first started.

    f-f-g has to be the best outdoor magazine in the world, hands down. i have been reading it for years, never got an issue i didn't read cover to cover. i like how it's written for the meat and potatoes outdoorsman. can't find a bad thing with that one!

    yea i think it got me interested in the pursuit of trapping. i love this magazine and even read the articles about fishing for trout and fish that arent in iowa. this magazine is great. but sadly, i dont have a subscription towards it!

    I love the magazine. I have read it for many years. Its usually a little more realistic and less politicaly correct then most of the others.......
