    I just finally found my calling.

    I am a hunter by no means! But, just got in to deer hunting this season. I have been trying to find god and my calling at the same time. I am getting my degree in publishing and marketing.

    Like a sound from outerspace the other day, I heard a voice tell me to create a magazine/journal -

    I have now put in process the magazine - God and Game

    I bought the domain godandgame.com

    I searched for days on if hunting is a sin and battled with my concious. I now know that god put all creatures here for us for nurishment.

    My question is this:

    If I publish this magazine what is the chance you would get a subscription?

    I have decided that the $5 monthly subscription would break down like this:

    $2 to me (for the first 1000 subscriber for my family to live and after 1000, I go to $1 per)

    $2 to a church on a lottery basis by subscriber submission for their church

    $1 for publishing costs

    I will dedicate my days and nights to the magazine for these subjects in the readings:

    Monthly Scriptures
    Your Pictures (show offs)
    Parent/Child Hunt Pics
    parent/child pics
    fishing trips
    RECIPES (Im a food lover and wannabe chef)
    best family story
    organized hunting/fishing trips
    Reviews of ranches/products
    Giving a harvest
    video hunts
    hunting ethics
    best hunting/fishing story (with a $ prize)

    I even plan to take my share of profits and take subscribers on hunting/fishing trips.

    Its only $5 a month.... You spend that on ......(junk)

    And the best part is all funds are accounted for on the website for you (the subscriber) to see where it was spent!

    I will only make about $1000 a month after all is said and done after attorneys, publicity, and accountants.

    I am also looking for ground floor people to go in on this.

    I have the domain name, copywright (on the publication throug the library of congress), and the contacts to make this a success.

    I already have 230 people signed up and only in my home town!!!!

    Lets get this going for god and the hunters!

    Geez, how much thought have you give this other than divine guidance?? Have you ever published before, been an editor or author? Seems like a big leap of faith to me!

    I don't know much about hunting anymore, I haven't hunted since high school. But I do know this: If God didn't want us to eat animals, He wouldn't have made them out of meat. ;)

    Sounds interesting. I would like to find a Christian perspective about something I was actually interested in. I can only read about pinewood derby and football so much. Well, actually I build pinewood derbys with the high school kids I teach at church. You magazine sounds better. I suck at pinewood derby!

    I could blow smoke up your butt and tell you what a fantastic idea it is and watch you sink money into an eventual black hole or I can tell you the truth. Not quite sure how that makes me hateful.

    Ah "one truthful criticism from a thought foe is none but a bettering truth from a friend". Qoute from who?

    You are right. I might have many say they would subscribe, but not do that.

    But again..... It is an issue of what I feel I should put out to the public whether it costs me to "Get the word out", or it makes money and catches on.

    I do appreciate constructive criticism all the same!

    You need to realize the situiation that current editors are in.

    lax economy, periodicals failing left and right.

    Your gonna take everyother gun rag, and add GOD. Most folks dont wish to have religion fed to them.


    Good idea on forum, in reality a whole other creature.....
