this ’n that

THIS AUTUMN, ONE OF THE MOST celebrated decorative arms collections will leave the vault for a rare public exhibition. “Decorative Arms: Treasures from the Robert M. Lee Collection” features more than 130 firearms dating from as early as 1590 through the modern era. Showcasing the skills of the world’s most revered gunmakers and engravers, the collection includes many arms that have never been seen by the public. Organized by the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, “Decorative Arms: Treasures from the Robert M. Lee Collection” will be the largest ever public presentation of Lee’s fabulous collection. It will be on view November 16 through February 16. “Decorative Arms” juxtaposes historic arms with modern pieces to illustrate the scope of western arms history, as well as the depth and breadth of the Lee…

tribute to t. boone pickens: a passionate quail hunter

LUNCH, FEATURING DOVE BREASTS wrapped in bacon, was served in a pavilion in a wooded glade—the kind of place Charlemagne might have entertained his Lords and Ladies during a hunt for the royal stag. Eventually Bubba Wood and I excused ourselves, rounded up a couple of guides and their truckful of pointers, and struck off across the West Texas plains in search of smaller, but no less royal, game. When we returned to the ranch house at dusk, we reported our results to our host. In three hours of hunting, we killed 29 quail, mostly bobs but a few hard-earned blues as well. “You had a good shoot, then,” he acknowledged. “We killed 17—but we only hunted for an hour.” You had as good a chance of sneaking the sunrise past a rooster…

crowell decoys top copley’s record-setting $3 million sale.

COPLEY FINE ART AUCTIONS, LLC, the nation’s premier decoy and sporting art auction house, realized more than $3 million at its Sporting Sale 2019 on July 25 in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The auction, which consisted of 547 lots, was a solid 88 percent sold. The top three decoy lots were the Harmon “Dust Jacket” Plover Trio by A. Elmer Crowell of East Harwich, Massachusetts. The trio brought a combined $1.14 million. The turned-head plover sold for $396,000; the feeding model reached $420,000 and the final plover soared past its $180/240,000 estimate to land at $324,000. The decoys were offered in association with Ted and Judy Harmon’s Decoys Unlimited, Inc. The auction results further demonstrated that Crowell’s “dust jacket” plover, and his feeding model in particular, are among the most sought-after carvings in the…

a remarkable new book by a legendary artist.

“If I had to paint only one animal it would be the lion. Lions are iconic animals, symbolizing so much to so many people around the world. Both past and present civilizations have immortalized the spirit of the lion, which has become a symbol of the admirable traits we humans embrace.” THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXCERPT FROM King of Beasts – A Study of the African LION. WRITTEN BY DAVID CABELA, THIS REMARKABLE NEW BOOK FEATURES 134 COLOR PLATES OF LIONS AND OTHER CREATURES OF THE AFRICAN VELDT. It is only fitting that one of John Banovich’s biggest breaks as an artist—the one that propelled him to finally travel to Africa—transpired from the sale of two of his early lion paintings: In the Heat of the Day and The Kill. When Gene Worrell,…

the scent of elk and horses.

The whisper of water on weathered stone as it courses cold around your waders. The feel of streambed gravel beneath good felt soles. The resonant patter of rain on the brim of a crusty old cowboy hat, and the sweet, pungent aroma of November wafting through maples on a cool autumn eve. Your first springtime walk on hillside grass following a flat, frozen interlude in hospital and rehab, and the summertime taste of fresh-picked tomatoes on your otherwise wintering tongue. A cottonwood storm in the midst of June. The scent of elk and horses. SUCH IS THE ESSENCE OF LIFE—if that life is lived strictly in the moment, with overt disregard of future and past. And now it is Christmas once more, and it’s snowing. It’s snowing hard, and I’m on my way to…
