A Perfect Gift

December 14, 2017 - Larry Claypool
‘Tis the season to purchase outdoor gifts for our hunting and fishing relatives and friends. I have the perfect medium for that — a wide range of media, made available from many of Ohio Valley Outdoors’ contributing writers and photographers. See my list below. And don’t forget that an OVO magazine subscription makes a great gift, at $14.95 a year. See page 6 of the December issue of Ohio Valley Outdoor Times for details.

In the Winter issue of OVO I reviewed a new book, The Old Man ‘Whispers Heard’, by H. “Bumper” Bauer, a 214-page paperback book that offers a medley of recollections, reflections and experiences of Bauer’s life, family and living an outdoors life in Pennsylvania. Also read the review on our website:

The book offers another indication of the talent and valuable information that is made available for our readers.

Our writer’s work is available across many mediums, including: print, radio, TV, podcasts, blogs, videos and other online avenues. Some of them are also available for personal appearances. Below is a list of media and online activities from each contributor:
