Hunting in Paradise – Lanai

Back in 2016 when my High Adventure Company was first approached to manage the commercial sporting operations for Pineapple Brothers on Lanai, I confess that I knew very little about the flora and fauna of this Hawaiian island. I quickly got up to speed and learned everything I could about […]

Garden & Gun – Searching for Monster Trout on Georgia’s Soque River

In the headwaters, cornfields in the valleys nudge against sycamores and mountain laurel as the river, here little more than a creek, twists through banks clad in vine and wildflowers. Farther downstream, it gathers flow from limestone springs, and its rock-ribbed pools are cooled in the shade of soaring hemlock groves. The Soque River (pronounced so-quee) flows for about thirty miles contained in a single county—Habersham, merely four counties northeast of metro Atlanta—an intimacy that lends it a homey, winsome, tucked-just-out-of-sight appeal.

Shooting Sportsman – The Adventurous Life

At the handler’s command, the pin is pulled from the waiting cocker, which launches like a grenade into the cover, blowing the covey of quail skyward.
