Fork in the Road

“It was the perfect day for a hunt.  And by that I mean it was cold, damp, and miserable.  Cradling the steaming cap of my thermos, though, I could not have been more ecstatic.  Years of meticulous planning and many, many hours of hard work had led to this point.  Sitting here at the confluence of the Pee Dee and Rocky Rivers in this blind was the prize, and I couldn’t have imagined a better one.  I could already taste the meal of duck breast, roasted potatoes, and asparagus I had been salivating over for all of those months and was finally going to have tonight.”

And so began our inaugural column for one of our favorite publications, “The Contemporary Wingshooter.”  Published quarterly by Jim Stenson, TCW is a fantastic quarterly e-magazine focusing on a range of topics within the realm of wingshooting and conservation. We can’t tell you how excited we are to be partnering with TCW to launch our new column, “In the Field.”  Through it, we look forward to showcasing some of our premiere projects as well as communicating our commitment to preserving rural traditions through the implementation of sporting programming and conservation practices.

In this first article, titled “Fork in the Road,” we invite you to learn about our work at The Fork Farm & Stables in North Carolina.  Encompassing a comprehensive approach to fostering healthy populations of upland game birds, we partnered with the owner, to pursue strategies that would not only yield sporting opportunities, but that would also restore the surrounding ecosystems. To check out our column, head to, set up a free account, and turn to page 72 to start reading.  And while you’re there, check out our ad on page 60!
