Vol. 3 Num. 2 – February/March 2015
Elvis is the king . . . of the quail fields at Sinkola Plantation in Thomasville, Georgia, that is. Covey Rise introduces readers to an cocker spaniel with loads of personality—Elvis. When he’s not the family dog of the Kirkhams at Sinkola, sleeping at the foot of the bed, he’s riding poised in a quail wagon ready to flush or retrieve bobwhites. Read more in “Finding Elvis.” (By the way, that’s Elvis on the issue’s cover!)
We journey next to northcentral Idaho and Flying B Ranch in Kamiah. Recipient of the Orvis Wingshooting Lodge of Year (twice, actually), visit and stay there and you’ll know why! Recreational choices abound—hunting for chukar, pheasant, partridge, and in the “offseason” a chance to fish for Clearwater River steelhead. And don’t overlook taking advantage of the facilities to train your canine companion through the spring and summer months.
International travel is on tap, too, in this issue. Guayascate is a lodge in Argentina at which you can indulge your shooting passions and soothe your soul, as writer Roger Catchpole informs us. And in this issue check out La Porteñita, a nearby lodge, as well!
Rust never sleeps and neither should you when it comes to cleaning your prized investment of sporting shotguns. Gregg Elliott takes you through a master class on gun cleaning, with the techniques and tools to do a thorough job.
And for some spiritual uplift, read about fine artist Gordon Allen and spent some time appreciating his incredible artwork.
Similarly, enjoy the culinary uplift of Christopher Kostow in “Portrait of An Artist.” Kostow is the inspired chef at The Restaurant at Meadowood in California’s Napa Valley. His recipes, and his book A New Napa Cuisine, will introduce new culinary horizons.
