A LOOK INSIDE THE LATEST ISSUE OF COVEY RISE: VOLUME 5, NUMBER 3

V5N3_1200 x 1200

Covey Rise is, in many ways, a testament to dogs. Hunting and bird dogs, certainly, but the larger population of dogs that accessorize our dens, co-pilot our trucks, offer quiet counsel on early-morning walks, and wait patiently beside the highchair while the baby finishes eating. Dogs are an important part of our lives, and we celebrate them in this issue from beginning to end. From an On Point snapshot of some of the upland breeds to a feature on pudelpointers to Doc’s recounting of his beloved Charbaby, you might say we’ve gone to the dogs. And in case you find yourself thinking about a puppy, our canine correspondent Frank reminds us that puppy picking is a two-way street.

Fear not, though, because we continue our quest to bring you the best the upland world has to offer, including the next installment of our series on bespoke shotguns and a visit to Wickett & Craig, one of the last remaining vegetable-based leather tanneries in the U.S.

To enjoy the finer things in context, we travel to Gilchrist Club, in the heart of Old Florida, for some traditional bobwhite hunting and visit Fixe, an Austin, Texas eatery known for both their biscuits and their honey badgers, beverages that mix bourbon and honey in determined fashion. Following the story on that cocktail napkin, we propose a road trip in pursuit of American distilleries and visit with the family behind the iconic Pappy Van Winkle line of bourbons while enjoying a few days afield at Duval Plantation in South Carolina.

Along the way we bring you insights on the fundraising efforts behind conservation, an educated look at the maduro cigar wrapper, and an upland retrospective that brings past and future together in ways that compel us to embrace the present. All the while, we make every effort to envelop you in the upland traditions we celebrate. Thanks for joining us.

As the wingshooting seasons continue to unfold this year into next, we move deeper into the experience of traditions that bind us to the elements we love about the sport.
