buy in print

The September/October issue of Shooting Sportsman is now available online and on newsstands. Our "Upland Issue" is typically our largest of the year and includes all of the columnists of our recurring Departments and more wingshooting & fine-gun features than any other issue. On the cover: a Montana pheasant hunter photographed by Brian Grossenbacher.

Just a sampling of September/October’s many features:

  • "Hi On Quail" — Eddie Nickens hunts George Hi Plantation in North Carolina
  • "A Woodcock Odyssey" — Art Wheaton & friends give chase from Minnesota to the Maritimes
  • "Geese on the Orkneys" — Kurt Glaeseman goes fowling on the exotic isles of northern Scotland
  • "Invisible Birds" — A vision quest for ptarmigan in Alaska
  • "Winning Reports" — Hunting stories from our 25th Anniversary sweepstakes winners
  • “John Dickson & Son” — Douglas Tate explores the history of the gunmaker and the quintessential Scottish round-action
  • “The Damascus-Barrel Maker” — Vic Venters profiles British barrelmaker Peter Higgins, who has revived the art of making welded-steel tubes
