Many of you already know these. I am posting them in case some do not. 

MuzzleBlasts:

This one has been mentioned in this forum a lot in the past. It is the official magazine of the 
National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association.

I have been a NMLRA member for three years now. I never got my magazines all that time. 
If you are a member, be aware you are supposed to be getting these. (Someone had to tell me!)
So, the one above is my first one. I really enjoyed it. Seriously, it is worth joining just to get this. 
This is the big reason for this post. The Contemporary Longrifle Association auction items were 
pictured in this issue. A lot of NMLRA shoots are announced and celebrated. The art in the frontier deer 
hunting article is nice. High quality pictures are a strength.

American Frontiersman: 
This one was available at a retail store that I happened by. I had never heard of it, but I gave it a try.

It is good. Enjoyable. It is a little advertiser oriented/pushy in a couple places. It also diverts to a couple more modern 
hunting oriented topics. But, it was a lot more fun than reading another People Magazine. I liked the horn article and 
the skinning pieces especially. The 18th century camping story was interesting as well. Oh! It also had a short antler knife 
handle 'how to' that held my attention. Now that I think about it, I lingered over the trapper knife section, too. 
So, try it for yourselves and see if it is for you.

Thanks for posting these. I used to get Blackpowder Hunting magazine with my membership to the blackpowder hunting association (I think that's what it was called? Been awhile now) I sure miss getting a magazine fully devoted to just muzzleloader hunting. How much of the Muzzle Blasts would you say is hunting oriented? I know you said you just got your first issue so maybe someone else knows? The American Frontiersman looks interesting as well! Another magazine I saw that looks very similar is the Modern Pioneer magazine. I need to pick one and start getting it. Would really like one that's more hunting oriented though.

theres also the backwoodsman magazine that has muzzleloading articles. Mostly written by me, but others do write about BP stuff.

I went looking. Of the last six months, this was the cover art I liked the most.
Buck has a connection to this magazine, as well.

This one is on display now at my local Publix grocery store. 

The cover failed to draw me in so I did not read it. Also looked more modern than I was interested in seeing?

I went looking for the other one and found this. Is this what you were thinking of? I have seen this title on sale 
at Buffalo Bill's black powder shop in Orlando. They were back issues and I never indulged.

I agree... the cover of that Modern Pioneer wouldn't make me want to get it either. The last one I saw had a hunting seen on it that made it look more intriguing. I've never seen that muzzleloader magazine you posted. Wonder what it's like?

That is the great thing about this place. Some one usually knows the things you don't. Very Happy 
I am betting we will get somebody to tell us something about it.

Muzzleloader is my favorite magazine of all time.
All traditional muzzleloading subjects. ( no modern guns "pre-1840" only)
There is a nice balance of hunting articles , history articles , gun topics , reviews going on in each issue.

Well, the hurricane must have blown Backwoodsman to my grocery store. 
For the first time, I saw this magazine on the shelf at Publix. Jon's article is in it

Nice. I just got my subscription. My first issue has not come, yet. Now, my grocery carries it. Laughing
Typical. 

They still are having supply chain difficulties due to the storm, but Jon's article finds its way onto the shelves. Laughing

I get both Muzzle Blasts and Muzzleloader magazines. They both are good for me. Muzzleloader has more substantial,  historical articles.

They both beat Vanity Fair, CosmoGirl and Teen Vogue, hands down. Very Happy

There were a couple of us that had articles about every other issue on muzzleloading through period edibles for 6-7 years. Then Charlie got into the Y2K thing in 1999-2000 and went in the direction of modern survival.
