Nothing better than reading Mr. Bill Heavey! At least in the area of reading! Now, turkey and deer hunting are some better, but when it comes to having to stay around the house and read, it's re-runs of Bill that fill the bill...

I just read "The Rope Report" by Bill Heavey and it brought back lots of memories. After bow hunting, teaching bowhunter's education and hunter's education throughout the west for a period of over four decades one thing that has really changed is the perspective of your average Joe and "celebrity" hunter. Starting out during Fred Bear's, Glenn St. Charles and many other pioneers of modern bowhunting's history, I have watched sportsmen's views toward tackle shift from the simple inexpensive do it yourself to the high tech no gadget is too farfetched approach.

I was an editor for the WSB magazine a few years back and wrote quite a few articles about our sport during this time frame for the WSB and Bowhunting.Net. I loved to write about my first love (hope my wife doesn't read this). Soon manufactures were asking me to do product reviews but they weren't happy with honest ones. They asked, "Can't you write ones which will make folks buy our product?"

I remember when folks like Chuck Adams wrote articles telling us how to use flannel garments just as well as camo and many other homemade applications, but when he and other "hunting celebs" got on the manufactures dime their tune changed! I miss the simpler times hunting with the old timers like Mr. St. Charles and others... Hunters would be well served to move back toward the KISS principles... Keep It Simple Stupid... *Grin*

Anyway I truly enjoyed your magazine, Mr. Heavey's article and the memories it brought back...

Sincerely Yours,
