    image.jpeg image.jpeg The new Sep/Oct issue of The Backwoodsman magazine came out today, which contains an article I wrote on converting a carpenter's hatchet into a carving/pack hatchet with the expertise and help of J.M. Here are pictures of the magazine cover and the first page of the article if you are interested in reading it. I want to publicly thank J.M. for making the article possible.

    Here in MA it takes 7 to 10 days for the magazine to show up at Walmart or Barnes and Noble after it arrives in my mailbox.

    Herself is not going to be pleased !!! I just asked her nicely to go out to a town and fetch me in a copy of something that isn't yet on the shelf ,,,

    It's like sending her out to close the teepee smoke flaps after it starts raining,,, I'm going to hear about it for a while ;-)

    I began reading the backwoodsman after I woke up in the intensive care unit with pancreatitis I woke up when the dr said I wouldn't. I was bored had tubes running out of spots a man should never have them lol my wife went to Hastings and bought me a copy in 2008 several guns and hunting mags the newspaper I set there and read it from the BWM cover to cover and have not missed an issue since. It is the best magazine on the market to me. I have been working on an article for them. Congrats looking foward to reading it!!!'

    It took about 8 months between submitting the article and its publication. I look forward to reading your article!

    You might be in serious trouble! Having moved to MA from MN, I know how far it can be to town from wherever you live in northern MN. At least it isn't yet winter there.
