The newest issue of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers’ magazine is available today
MISSOULA, Mont. – The fall issue of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers’ quarterly magazine, Backcountry Journal, is arriving in mailboxes across North America. Here’s a preview of an issue dedicated to the memories we made in our favorite season and the work being done by BHA members across North America.
BHA Members Roll up Their Sleeves: September is Public Lands Month. Here we celebrate the growing collaborations between BHA and our public land management agencies to achieve lasting boots-on-the-ground success stories.
Standing up for Shoreline Access: “Across North America the boundary between uplands and tidelands occupies a fascinating niche within the greater public access conversation,” says Michael Woods, chair of BHA’s New England chapter. Woods takes a dive into Rhode Island’s shoreline access laws and what the New England chapter is doing to help sustain public access opportunities.
A Chance to Prove Ourselves: Alaska BHA member Bjorn Dihle looks at the work that remains to permanently protect Bristol Bay, where Pebble Mine has threatened some of the most iconic hunting and angling opportunities found anywhere in the world – and a commercial fishing industry that supports the local region.
Breathwork and Buck Fever: BHA member Ian Ramsey teaches us four simple exercises to control our breathing and overcome the dreaded buck fever in this not-to-be-missed Backcountry Journal Instructional column.
Loads more in an action-filled issue: Flatlanders head west to chase elk; a packraft trip through the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge; a BHA’s member’s lifetime of experiences paving the way toward her solo bear hunt; great work by BHA’s programs and chapters and a whole lot more – along with a unique cover image certain to stir your own memories of fall hunting.
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.
