Attempts to reach the principals of both magazines have not been successful.

OP Publishing also publishes Pacific Yachting, Canadian Aviator, BC Outdoors Sport Fishing, Western Sportsman and The Outdoor Edge, also a hunting and fishing title.

Cottage Life Media, part owned by multimedia producer Blue Ant Media Inc., publishes Cottage Life, Outdoor Canada and Canadian Home Workshop.
