There’s no secret that times are tough right now. Trips and weddings are being postponed. Friends and family members are being laid off. People are struggling in many different ways, and Covey Rise is no exception. We are with you.

Although this time has brought uncertainty and pain, it has also given us the opportunity to slow down and remember what we do have. We are having more conversations over dinner or on Zoom or the telephone, exploring the outdoors, taking walks with those we love, and spending more time together than ever. We often relish this sentiment—the gratitude of slowing down—when we are in the field before we go back to our fast-paced, daily responsibilities. But now, we are living this sentiment every day in our living and dining rooms, our kitchens, and on our porches, and I am thankful for that.

As a small business, now more than ever, we’d like to show our gratitude to our advertisers, contributors, and subscribers for allowing us to keep bringing you these stories and for sticking with us through these times. For our subscribers, hopefully, the pages of our magazine have brought some well-earned distractions and pleasure. To the companies and organizations that support our upland traditions: your support is essential right now. We couldn’t do it without all of you. Thank you for your business and dedication.

While we navigate these times together, Covey Rise will continue to do what we do best: striving to celebrate the sporting life through compelling words and stunning images in a magazine delivered directly to you. We will continue to fill the pages of our publication and digital platforms with treasured stories of time spent afield. In the future, look for additional digital content—from hunting to cooking to conservation—by email and on our website. If you are not a part of our digital family, sign up for our email newsletter on our website, coveyrisemagazine.com, and make sure you are following us on Instagram: @coveyrise, Twitter: @coveyrisemag, and at facebook.com/coveyrise for updates and more.

We also encourage you to enjoy the outdoors as much as you can—go hunting or fishing, buy gear, and support conservation initiatives. From license sales to conservation efforts, every bit helps. Take a buddy fishing or ask your dad to go shooting with you. There is no better place to be than in the woods or on the waters with your favorite companions right now.

Through it all, we have continued to work hard here at Covey Rise and are thrilled to present this issue to you. I hope that the stories within energize you for this coming season. I am so thankful, especially now, for being able to head outdoors with my family and my dogs while so many other aspects of our lives may be restricted in one way or another. Take advantage of the times—turn the grief into gratitude by spending special moments together afield. Hunt ‘em up!
