Introducing Our New 2017 Sporting Lifestyle Issue

Building on the success of last year, this Sporting Lifestyle issue is even better than the inaugural issue. And that’s saying a lot!

 

Last year we introduced the first-ever Sporting Lifestyle issue of Sporting Classics. From Theodore Roosevelt’s game room to the home of Dick and Mary Cabela, we toured some of the most extraordinary sporting homes ever designed.

This year we build on that foundation by exploring homes you the reader can personally visit—even own! Look inside the majestic hillside home of the late outdoor writer Corey Ford; explore a Southern plantation with game-scene murals painted on the dining room walls; see what went into creating “the Ultimate Sportsman’s Lodge.”

Our cover reflects this issue’s theme by showcasing a new way to enjoy the sporting lifestyle. Nomadic Shack is a custom home builder that constructs modular “shacks” to fit a client’s wants and needs. The home showcased on the cover took just 60 days to complete, with Nomadic Shack constructing, shipping, and erecting it on a hill overlooking a waterfowl roosting area.

Can’t buy or build at the moment? Consider visiting Primland Resort, Joshua Creek Ranch, or other hunting lodges that enable their visitors to stay in the lap of luxury while hunting trophy game animals. Between the outdoors and the indoors, you’ll never want to leave.

This exciting new issue is mailing to subscribers now and will be on newsstands April 4. Can’t wait? Subscribe to our digital version of the magazine and get the new issue today!
