MISSOULA, Mont. – The fall issue of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers’ quarterly magazine, Backcountry Journal, is landing in mailboxes across North America. Here are some of the highlights of this action-packed celebration of our favorite season:
Into the Mystic: Ben Matthews takes us into Alaska’s Tongass National Forest on a blacktail hunt in this feature story filled with jaw-dropping photography that conveys just what it takes to be successful – and enjoy – hunting one of the wettest environments in North America.
Breaks: BHA’s Collegiate Program Coordinator Kylie Schumacher draws a Montana bighorn ewe tag on her first try and then tackles the challenge head-on in this not-to-be-missed tale of trials, tribulations and eventual success.
Ocean State Adventure: When U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Striker Brown gets stationed in Rhode Island, he gets creative to find a backcountry whitetail hunting adventure in the smallest U.S. state in a story filled with humor, adventure and great reflections on why we hunt.
Bird Hunting Help: Scott Linden shares shooting tips guaranteed to help the upland bird hunter in the field, and Homer Raymundo shows us how he uses the wind to his advantage when waterfowl hunting in the two great instructional columns featured in this issue.
BHA Chapters and Programs Advance Hunting, Angling and Conservation: BHA’s New Mexico chapter gives away an elk tag to a new hunter and fights for the common hunter. The Alberta chapter fights against destructive coal practices and for the conservation of its backcountry and wildlife. The North Carolina chapter and BHA’s Armed Forces Initiative team up to help veterans learn to hunt. So much more of the great work being done by BHA volunteers across North America is featured in this and every issue of Backcountry Journal.
Backcountry Journal is distributed to BHA members, elected officials and land management agencies. It also is available in a digital flipbook edition, available to members on the BHA website. Join BHA today to get your copy.
