A LOOK INSIDE THE LATEST ISSUE OF COVEY RISE: VOLUME 11, NUMBER 5
Cover by Thomas Harvey
You can never be bored when you fill your days exploring new places and trying new things. When we venture out into the world, we bring stories back to the table, along with the bounty of the harvest and the magic that human hands and hearts seem to make of that harvest. Take your pick of boots from OnPoint, our ultimate prep guide to the hunt, and come along on an adventure with us.
In this issue of Covey Rise, we visit Greystone Castle in Mingus, Texas, where the views give the hunting a run for the money. Then, we join a small band of grouse hunters chasing Gordon setters through the hills and dales of Western North Carolina. Next, we celebrate 75 years of business with Fausti Arms, where diamonds are traded for steel. Our senses are heightened by delectable recipes from Chef Dylan Therrien of Brush Creek Ranch and beautiful art by Ryan Kirby that encapsulates all that we love about the upland lifestyle. After that, to explore the limits of the upland walkabout, we venture to Sweden to get a sense of how changing the scenery can bring traditional hunting experiences new life.
We round out the issue with columnist Chuck Holland, who takes a walk down memory lane with a long-forgotten cigar; wine columnist Jordan Mackay leads us through the process of naming wines; and our four-legged friend Frank offers some training techniques in light of bird season approaching quickly.
