For several issues reaching back to early 2015, Covey Rise has brought to our readers insider looks at incredible outdoors products and the people who make them. Several converge in the February-March 2016 issue—and the first such story is on a great man who has made his mark on working-dog training for centuries. Delmar Smith has an authentic approach to getting to know a dog’s mind—molding it like an artist molds a lump of clay—and helping to shape the dog’s behavior. “To train like a pro, you have to think like a dog,” Delmar says.
Next, we learn how Russell Moccasin has made one-of-a-kind, made-to-order footwear for decades from their workshop in Berlin, Wisconsin.
David McKay Brown is a skilled and talented craftsman making best guns under his name in Scotland. We visit his workshop to behold his beautiful guns.
The Georgia artist Bucky Bowles makes inviting and authentic paintings, transporting viewers into each scene—in other words, he is constantly “Painting the Familiar,” which is the title of our feature on Bucky and his work.
Chef Sean Finley of The High Adventure Company makes memorable meals in exquisite upland-hunting settings. We check in with him at Cheyenne Ridge in South Dakota to learn his approach to great food (and we share his recipes!).
Make your own memories by living the upland lifestyle with Covey Rise.
