A LOOK INSIDE THE LATEST ISSUE OF COVEY RISE: VOLUME 11, NUMBER 4
Cover by Lee Kjos
The secret to a life of adventure is to think outside the box. The feature stories of this issue read like missions—in which there are things to be accomplished, quests to embark upon, and meanings to be uncovered.
In this issue of Covey Rise, we explore a camp of canvas tents built up by Montana Upland Outfitters during each hunting season only to be removed at the end. Next, Tony Caligiuri finds joy in weaving together sporting good brands to keep high quality and iconic names in the business. Then, we experience a hunt with a team of Irish Peg Dogs and their business-like qualities and reverence for the hunt before returning to the heart of a trip afield with just a man and his dog under the starry skies. Finally, we learn about the clear mission of The Laurel Hotel & Spa at Auburn University to provide world-class hospitality and an epicurean experience before getting to know Jerry Talton and his dedication to Outer Banks tradition and his beautifully carved duck decoys.
When you set out on your next trip, the mission may simply be to bag a few birds and have a good time with your dog. But dig a little deeper, try something different, and don’t be afraid to look for new meaning in your time afield.
