I would like to personally wish everyone a Happy New Year. This coming year’s calendar is already jammed to the brim and it’s just getting started. It’s a must if we are going to keep up with the latest and greatest products hitting the shelves this year as well as making sure we are vetting outfitters and putting boots in the dirt to make sure you get the most out of your next adventure.

2018 seemed to fly by and when I look back at the calendar to see that I was on the road nearly 200 days, I can see why. However, as I look at all the video clips, photos, and content we created, I get to see a lot of happy faces. The Sportsman’s News Pro Membership Sweepstakes delivered a lot of lifelong dreams to a good number of lucky winners and we got to capture the majority of those experiences on film and photos to be shared with our readers throughout this upcoming year.

We are very excited about the upcoming year and how the content we have created will be used. The printed copies of Sportsman’s News have been around for fifteen years now and the content we have created has been used here and on our website and social media. The magazine will still be available inside the doors of Sportsman’s Warehouse, but more exciting are the additional resources available for this content. So, if you don’t make it into the stores on a weekly basis, you will be happy to know that Sportsman’s Warehouse has put together a powerhouse group of people on the web and social media side of things for the upcoming year. They will be using a lot of this content we have created throughout all of these media sources, so it will be available at your fingertips whenever you want it. I feel that this information is very important to you as consumers.

My team and I spend well over 1,000 man-days a year in the field and all the products we use come direct from Sportsman’s Warehouse. We utilize and evaluate products from entry level stuff all the way up the chain to extremely high-end products. When you are looking to spend thousands of dollars on a new set of optics, it’s great to hear from people who have used these products in the field and in every type of situation. We can answer the questions for you of whether that product is truly worth the money or if it’s just a marketing campaign. Our success in the field depends on us having products that get the job done each and every time. Is that Sitka rain jacket really worth over $500? Product failure can ruin a trip of a lifetime and we are going to tell you about it. So, we are super excited to expand our reach with Sportsman’s Warehouse’s new platform. If there is a product you would like to know about, we are always happy to answer those questions. Send us an email at info@sportsmansnews.com if you would like us to test a product before you spend some hard-earned dollars that we have no experience with, we will do that as well. It’s our job to make sure you are getting the most out of the products you are purchasing and our experience gives us that ability. So, get ready for an exciting 2019.

January is a huge month for the Sportsman’s News Pro Membership Sweepstakes. We will be giving away a $30,000 elk hunt with Utah’s premier outfitter, Mossback Outfitters, in the San Juan area. This is a private land CWMU and Doyle Moss and his crew have taken some whopper bulls on this hunt in the past. The drought of 2018 left a lot of good bulls unharvested and the chance for a true giant to be in the crosshairs of one lucky winner. This hunt sold for a significantly higher price at the Western Hunt Expo last year than the price for which we are purchasing it, so this is truly a trip of a lifetime for one lucky winner. If you aren’t a member, now is a great time as we give away 36 grand prizes a year and we do it every ten days. It gives you something to look forward to nearly every week throughout the year.
