Covey Rise



Fall is near, and we are extremely thankful for that. Through all of the challenges that the world has been presenting to all of us these days, Covey Rise has been working diligently with with supreme excitement to bring you this August-September issue just in time for the upcoming hunting season.

We take a grand adventure across South Africa aboard the Rovos Rail in this issue. Join Covey Rise as we hunt abundant species of upland birds and waterfowl, dine on fine cuisine, and revel in luxurious lodging while riding the train tracks that connect people with the hunt.

Professional Chef David Guas takes us to his oasis in Maryland for some bird hunting in Maryland where he shows how he satisfies his appetite for inspiration through the sporting life. After the hunt David prepares a meal using his unique talents and techniques, and this feature brings you the detailed recipes used on that day afield.

Writer Tom Reed invites us on a journey that channels the tenacity that it takes to chase these birds where they live—up high and on a slant. This well-written narrative showcases the appreciation of Covey Rise for a quality product and premier storytelling in the upland-hunting space.

Reid Bryant describes how the perceptions of professional artist Liz Lewis remain precise throughout her life, whether she is creating masterpieces of bronze statues of bird dogs or she is hunting pheasants with her family in Montana.

Women are inspiring conservation, Worshipful Company of Gunmakers in England, the first Irish setters, gear from King Ranch, air travel with cigars, and wines from the soils of rare places. Find all of this and more in the August-September issue.
