The Outdoor Newshound


During his 35 years as a working outdoors journalist, J.R. Absher has been a newspaper reporter, photographer, mule wrangler, magazine editor, political consultant, copywriter, PR director and sportsmen’s advocate. While continuing to contribute to national publications, he has become a favorite among fellow communicators for tracking, collecting and sharing amusing morsels of outdoors oddities and other news about hunting, fishing and the shooting sports on his blogs. When not traveling to various hunting and angling locales, he and Etta divide their time between a rustic cabin in the backwoods of southern Indiana’s Hoosier National Forest and a 1950s-era southwestern bungalow in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.
