Field & Stream Editor Surprises Many, Heads South

A small magazine in the south may be worth picking up: Garden & Gun. Especially in the next few months. Field & Stream's editor, Sid Evans, is leaving cushy digs in NYC for Charleston, S.C. to head the fledgling publication. Evans is a former junior national skeet-shooting champion and first-rate journalist.

Says Evans' former boss at Sports Illustrated: "Mark Twain would have read this magazine if it had been around. He probably would’ve written for it.”

Any publication that is mixing Palm Beach shopping, promising beagles, oil paintings, and dove hunting in Argentina is worth a look to me.
