Inside the Winter Issue of BHA’s Backcountry Journal

The latest issue of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers Magazine is out today

MISSOULA, Mont. – The Winter 2023 issue of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers’ quarterly magazine, Backcountry Journal, is hitting mailboxes across North America. Here are some of the highlights of an edition that goes perfectly with a chilly night, a warm fire, and your favorite beverage.

All the correct words: “How did you see a field, with words, the complexities of war, guilt and responsibility?” After returning from deployment, BHA member and Marine Jake Lunsford battles his inner self and the elements on a moose hunt in the Colorado desert.

The Stoic Hunter: Hunters increasingly draw on the teachings of Stoicism, an ancient school of thought that emphasizes calm acceptance in the face of forces beyond our control. BHA member Christopher Ross details how BHA members and outdoorsmen (Clay Hayes, Mark Kenyon, Hal Herring to name a few) are using the teachings of the Stoics to resist and persevere in the field.

A hunting vacation: BHA member Cayla Bendel braves the cold in search of pheasants and Christmas cheer. Spoiler alert: she finds both in the North Dakota farm field.

Does Pittman-Robertson need better PR?: Charlie Booher, BHA Member, details ongoing efforts to undermine conservation funding and the role hunters and shooters play in conservation, and what we can do about it, in this public land owners column.

Torkat Kött – Swedish jerky: BHA member Kjell Hedström shares his meat-curing experience with instructions for a delicious charcuterie, his take on a simple recipe from Sweden, that you can wow your dinner guests or enjoy in the countryside next season.

And there is more: BHA’s Illinois chapter fights for access to water, Alaskan musk ox during pandemic, wild boar in flooded Texas countryside, elk, grouse, quail and more – there’s something for everyone, everywhere in the winter issue of Backcountry Journal.

Backcountry Journal is distributed to BHA members, elected officials, and land management agencies. It is also available in a digital flipbook edition, available to members on the BHA website. Join the BHA today to get your copy.
