Stanley Classic 64-Ounce Growler

Dad will be able to transport his favorite beverage in fully functional and iconic style with this 64-ounce growler. The extra-large size keeps liquids extra cold for up to 24 hours.

The Killer in the Woods by Former Gun Dog Editor in Chief, Rick Van Etten

The Killer in the Woods Book by Rick Van Etten

Former Gun Dog Editor in Chief, Rick Van Etten, hasn’t completely retired his writing! Instead of writing on bird dog training, he has turned his pen to fiction writing with his first book in a series of mystery novels. The Killer in the Woods features an unusual hero: a magazine editor, a hunter, and a dog lover who also just happens to be a “hitman with a code of honor.” Occasionally, this sportsman hunts something besides pheasants.
