quirky magazine started five years ago in Charleston....kind of a Gray's Sporting Jounal crossed with Southern Living....gun, hunting, fishing, football, southern food and crafts and conservation. not going to find a recipe for a new .223AI load, but this month has an article on star gun engraver Lisa Tomlin with some nice photos of her work, a story about an outfit trying to get wild quail reestablished in huntable numbers on their place in South Carolina, and interview with my neighbor Olivia Manning, and a very funny article by my friend (and partner's wife) Julia Read about super deer and taxidermy, which is worth the price for the description of the taxidermy themed party she threw in Shelby Foote's family's home to console her friends who were cheated of a big party when she called offa planned wedding.
in an age when print magazines are dying off, this little gem is one I look forward to every month, and it is doing very well in the south and even in less civilized areas.
the name is kind of an inside Charleston joke....there was a great bar there thirty years ago called the Garden and Gun Club.
"Garden and Gun"... that sounds like my wife and I... I will google it!
