    I am sitting here re-reading A Listening Walk by Gene Hill for the 50th or so time, and was thinking what a great bunch of writers Field and Stream magazine had. Some of my favorites were Gene Hill, Bob Brister, Ted Trueblood, Warren Page and Ed Zern. I miss them all. F&S just ain't the same.

    Don't forget Pat McManus. I re-read one of his books recently and laughed till I cried. I would reccomend any of his books for a truly enjoyable winter escape.
    Just seeing the names that you mentioned brought back memories of the past.

    You guys are right. There used to be some good ones. And to think, there actually was a time when Gore Tex and snowboards hadn't been invented yet...

    Hornet.....I agree! I have an original copy of the Outdoor Life mag in which Jack O'Conner's very first article appeared. Thinking about giving it to the O'Conner museum in Lewiston, Idaho.

    Mr. Frazier;
    I like Pat McManus too!. His stories always crack me up. It's been awhile since I've read an Outdoor life. Do they still publish his column?

    Unloader....I don't remember 0.19 per gallon for gas. I think I remember 30 cents for gas, 35 cents for smokes, and 25 cents for a 7 oz. pony bottle of Rolling Rock beer in the bars. Real Latrobe Rolling Rock....not that crap that A-B brews in Newark, NJ. How dare they!!!!
