The Northwoods Sporting Journal is where advertisers go to connect with the outdoor community and target potential customers.

In Over 700 Stores in Maine

The Northwoods Sporting Journal is sold at more than 700  large and small retail outlets throughout northern New England.

Over 10,000 Monthly Readers

The combination of newsstand sales and mail  subscribers gives the Sporting Journal a combined monthly circulation of about 10,000. Our time-tested “shelf life” at sporting lodges and outfitters makes our actual readership much greater than 10,000 monthly. Don’t take our word for it. Ask a sporting camp owner, or take a glance at the lodge’s nearest coffee table or reading nook.

Readers Throughout New England and Canada

Although the Sporting Journal is THE outdoor read anywhere you go in northern New England and the Canadian Maritimes, we have many subscribers in Massachusetts and other urban areas of New England as well.

Print and Digital Options Available

Although the printed version of the Sporting Journal continues to be the flagship of our outdoor communication mediums, our new, improved website makes our digital version of the magazine, new and old, available to all at no charge. Like a topline set of truck tires, this gives your advertising dollar extended mileage, both in the  digital magazine and on the website itself.  Contact us at 207 732 4880 or email info@sportingjournal.com for prices and more information.

Long Shelf Life and Wide Presence

As we like to say, “The Sporting Journal has shelf life. It hangs around longer than an old wool hunting shirt or tired  gundog beside a fireplace.” We like to think that this shelf life is a product of our publication’s personality, thoughtful, seasoned outdoor writers and exciting advertising displays. Distributing free issues of expired Journals at  New England sportsman shows and other outlets helps that shelf life, too.
