Angler & Hunter Hotline remains one of the best tools for directly communicating with our 100,000 members. In 2014, the members-only magazine was given a complete re-design from cover to back. We’re using info graphics and images and in-depth features to better bring to life the issues that matter most to our members. The 16-page magazine is produced 10 times per year and appears in Ontario OUT of DOORS magazine as part of OFAH membership.
