Varmint Hunter Association.

This is not really an equipment review so I'm putting it here.

I just wanted to tell everyone that might not of them about this association and their magazine. I just had a small correspondance with their Managing Editor Jackie Rheborg. It was about my subscription and was not a difficult issue to resolve. She handled this situation just like she has handled all my questions in the past. She was quick to respond and the response was professional, personal and above all friendly.

I felt it was worth bringing up to the membership here. I can not say enough good about the people running this association.

I also can not say enough good about the magazine they produce. It is a full size glossy print with articles very similar to the topics covered here. The articles are submitted by professional writers as well as their membership population.

Since the focus is varmints the callibers tend to be on the smaller scale. Usually .30 and below but the ranges are right on par with what we are doing here.

I told Jackie that I would be posting this because of the satisfaction I received and I invited her to have a representitive from the VHA introduce themselves to us and make a pitch for selling memberships so hopefully they will respond early next week. This is the magazine that got me started in long range shooting and I suggest others consider looking into supporting them.

You can find them at www.varminthunter.org

Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

I was a member for years even had an article posted in there on me and some PD guiding I did...

I guess I let my membership go astray.... over the past few years they have really seemed to be about advertising more than the articles..

still a wonderful magazine.... I just wish they had more on LR varminting... but I suppose there is only so much you can write about that....

Which issue?

They do have alot of adds but I don't mind. I'm glad they have so much commercial support in these anti hunting times and it is one of my best sources for seeing what is new in the world of LRH.

Agreed. Perhaps they could include a section on LRH in general. That would open the doors for discussion on the bigger calibers and bigger critters. It would be a great tool to help strenghten the unity between LR varminters and LR big gamers.

United we stand, divided we fall.

Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

I often wanted to got to the Jamboree but it is right in the middle of my busy season.. would only be a day drive for me too....

Hell I'd write and article for LR hunting to them.. Last year we had 9 guys take 14 antelope...

Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

I've been a member since the middle of 1998.
That's when I got into the longer range shooting.
Great magazine with a lot of advertising but I know that they have to pay the bills to keep a business afloat.
I sometimes give a years subscription to a friend that is starting or showing interest in long range shooting/hunting.
So far all of them have continued their subscriptions.

Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

Looking forward to seeing you there. The .338 is a little big for the Jamboree. Our rules limit the rifle calibers to .30 caliber and less.
