Albany Herald outdoor writer, Bob Kornegay tells why outdoor scribes don't necessarily do it for the money.
For me and more than a few others I know, the answer to that is simple. Outdoors writing puts us and keeps us in touch with “our” people — folks we understand and who understand us in turn. It also pays dividends that are priceless, regardless of the fact that they will never show up on our bank statements.
He puts together a great article that describes why it's certainly not about the money.
