The November/December issue of Shooting Sportsman is now available online and on newsstands. Our “Waterfowl Issue” travels the world to hunt ducks & geese, from the daunting chop of Izembek Lagoon in Alaska to the green fields of the Netherlands. The issue holds all of the columnists of our recurring Departments and more wingshooting & fine-gun features than any other magazine. On the cover: Canada geese photographed by Tom Martineau, www.therawspirit.com.
