I just received a copy of the Winter 2003 Daemonnews printzine on 
Saturday. That's the only US BSD-specific zine that I know.

But there are several others that cover open source in general though 
they may have "Linux" in their name. If the article isn't about the 
kernel, glibc, or a specific distro, it's probably applicable to 
FreeBSD. I seem to recall BSD specific articles or reviews in both 
Linux Journal and Linux magazine in the past.
