Regional outdoor writers Mike Wade and Leo Maloney are collaborating on their latest quarterly magazine, Adirondack Outdoors, which will premiere in April.
The magazine will feature articles on all types of outdoor sports in the Adirondacks including hunting, fishing, paddling, hiking, skiing and snowmobiling.
It will also cover environmental topics as well as issues unique to the Adirondacks.
Gary Lee, retired DEC Forest Ranger, author of Adirondack Birding and outdoor writer for the Weekly Adirondack, will also be writing a nature column for the publication.
An article on loons will be included in the inaugural issue. The magazine will be available in hard copy and as an ezine.
Hard copies will be available in sporting goods stores and marinas, and in most shops within the Adirondack Park which have magazine racks.
Wade, of Clinton and Old Forge, is publisher of the outdoor magazine. Maloney, who has been an outdoor writer for the past 36 years, is editor of the publication. A former Fourth Lake homeowner, he currently resides in Sherrill.
He is a consultant for the Central New York Sportsmen’s Show and the president of the New York State Outdoorsmen Hall of Fame.
For the past three years, he and Wade have published, Lake Ontario Outdoors, a quarterly magazine after which Adirondack Outdoors will be modeled to some degree.
