Game & Fish Magazine Presents ‘Readers’ Choice Awards’ at SHOT ShowJanuary 23, 2018
KENNESAW, GA (January 23, 2018) — Readers of Game & Fish Magazine, America’s only national outdoor magazine with a focus on local hunting and fishing, chose 18 new products earlier this year as their favorites in the magazine’s sixth annual “Readers’ Choice Awards.”
Trophies honoring the outdoor manufacturers were presented at the Archery Trade Association Show and will be presented at the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show.
According to the results, nearly 60 percent of voters consider themselves an “expert” or “advanced” hunter. Two-thirds of all respondents hunted at least 13 days last year, and 1 in 10 hunted more than 120 days last year. The average was 38 days of hunting.
“It’s impressive that most of our readers consider themselves advanced or even expert,” Editor-in-Chief of Game & Fish Magazine, John Geiger said. “They are a great resource when it comes to what gear works in the field and what doesn’t.”
Game & Fish, a nationally-distributed magazine with hundreds of thousands of monthly subscribers and newsstand sales, compiled the votes of more than 2,400 avid hunters. Results are published annually in the magazine’s July-August gear issue.
