I just received my "Winter 2009" issue of Turkey & Turkey Hunting magazine and it may be one of the best I've read.
The article on Ben Rogers Lee by Jim Cassada was especially good. All too often writers tend to gloss over the "not so good" traits (that all of us have) and make the subject of the article sound like a "perfect" individual. That's especially true when that person is no longer living.
Jim's honest account of Ben Lee was very refreshing. We can and should respect folks, even when they have some obvious shortcomings or flaws, as all of us have. The contributions made by Ben Lee to modern turkey hunting should never be forgotten. He was a true pioneer and helped many others to launch their careers in this sport.
Thank you Jim Cassada for a great read and account of the life and career of Ben Rogers Lee.
