See you later LA sportsman. It’s been all down hill since the format changes. Get ready to see your viewer numbers tank as well. Best of luck to you. This viewer is out

I agree, I gave up on the magazine after many many years of subscribing., 75% of the pages are just advertisements. Got tired of paying for basically a 'sales paper' with often recycled articles. Now they want $36 year for the website version, no thanks I'll pass and just go elsewhere. Understand its a business that needs to make money, I'm just not willing to pay to look at advertisements.

Yes I agree. All the things that kept this going so many years will be over soon, sad to see, it's been a long run. I do believe the sun is setting.

Come on guys, there is no such thing as a free lunch. Pay to subscribe to the magazine and the website is free. It?s a vast exaggeration to say it?s mostly ads, it?s mostly articles and yes, they have to pay the bills too. It?s less than $100 a year to subscribe to the magazine, join CCA and fish the STAR. That’s not a lot of money to participate in a community of outdoorsmen, keep up to date with what?s happening in our state, check out the articles and support our habitat. Plus you have the chance of getting lucky and winning. I feel certain that you?ve all spent thousands on gear/boat/bait/gas, another $100 to participate in all of those things is nominal and you know it. Also, I just looked and it?s $25 annually for a print/online combo, or $60 for 3 years, give me a break guys. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but this seems like you?re looking for a reason to complain. You?ve gotten it for free for how long? Now they want $25 a year and you?re quitting the site? I thought it was my generation(millennials) that were the butt hurt snow flakes, but I guess it becoming infectious ????

Just so everyone is clear, I posted a screen shot of the membership page, I don’t want you to think it’s the evil LAS overlords trying to seduce you.

I see your point and to a degree, I agree, but advertisers pay the site and subscribers now pay. LAS is double dipping and I don’t blame them if they can do it, but for me, it’s not worth it when there are free up to date things elsewhere that are free. Blogs, YouTube.com etc. I’m not paying!
