Outdoor Weekly vs. Outdoor News?

Recommended Posts

morgan7c

I'm a recent subscriber to Outdoors Weekly and I was curious what everyones opinions are on the Outdoors Weekly and Outdoor News? Some prefer one over the other for various reasons and I was wondering what you all think. I'm beginning to see alot more Outdoors Weekly papers up in this area and I hope this trend continues because I feel the fishing and hunting in this part of the state needs to exposed a bit more than it currently is. Have a good day guys!

I love the outdoor news! It's honestly the only piece of mail I look forward to getting. I think it's very insightful. I've never heard of outdoors weekly, is that based in minnesota as well? I'll have to keep my eye out for it, I can never get enough news about fishing in minnesota. What about midwest outdoors? I like the show, don't care so much for the paper, too inconsistant.

I agree with JBmasterangler,

The Outdoor News by far is the best magazine/paper out there. I look forward to the weekly delivery on Fridays and look forward to Clancy's articles and the ND reports and articles. Havn't missed an issue in about 7 years and will share with my kids when they get old enough to read. Another goody is the MN Volunter. They changed the name to be more PC but it overall is a wonderfull little magazine for everyone that enjoys the outdoors of MN.

Outdoors Weekly is based out of Minnesota (Vadnais Heights and Hutchinson). It's a few less pages than Outdoor News is but I find it very informative and it seems that all of their pictures are in color which I really like. I'm not familiar with the Midwest Outdoors paper but I do love the show.

Definately outdoor news. They have a political twist on outdoors issues but that is one of the reasons I enjoy it so much. The other reason is the writers aren't censored as they offer the opinions on subjects close to their heart. I find that week in and week out the outdoornews does a great job of bringing relevant topics to the table from all different spectrums. Outdoor weekly is a good paper too if you are just looking for outdoors type articles and how to fishing hints. Lately, I have found the content in the outdoor news is by far better then Outdoorlife and even Minnesota sportsman as these mags seem to have less and less content each month. Maybe a testament to the decrease in young sportsmen and women. Bottom line, I look foreward to every Thursday afternoon getting my subscription!

I have been getting outdoor news for a few years now and recently I received the outdoors weekly as Christmas gift. If and when I have to choose which to keep it will be the Outdoor news. I think there is just more info.

I feel Outdoor News is a superior paper compared to Outdoors Weekly. Much more and better info in my opinion. I usually buy both each week when I go grocery shopping and get the latest Midwest Outdoors every month as well. Midwest Outdoors is also pretty good, but for it's size it still doesn't compare to Outdoor News.

My vote goes to Outdoor News. I especially like the reader submitted photos. We always marvel at the large size of some of the fisherman's hands or how small their head is compared to the deer's head. wink.gif

It's always been Outdoor News for me, too. Don't see any reason to change, based on what I've seen with the competition.

Agreed on the outdoor news. Better articles, and more to read in general. Plus reading the cuffs and collars is absolutely hillarious!

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
