For Dog Lovers and Upland Hunters Who Appreciate Print
Print is the cornerstone of Project Upland. From books to our premium print magazine, you can find stories, imagery, and words that resonate with those obsessed with bird dogs and wingshooting. Most importantly, the print content we produce is timeless, making even our past issues ongoing favorites in our community.
The Ultimate Bird Dog Book
Craig Koshyk is considered the foremost historian on hunting dogs in the world. His first book, ‘Pointing Dogs, Volume One: The Continentals,’ explored some of the most famous versatile dog breeds, such as the German Shorthaired Pointer and Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, and their origins. Craig’s new book, ‘Pointing Dogs, Volume Two: The British and Irish Breeds,’ delves into the rest of the iconic breeds, including the English Setter, Gordon Setter, English Pointer, Irish Red Setter, and the Irish Red and White Setter. While Volume Two is available in print, Volume One is sold out and can only be acquired through the ‘Pointing Dogs Complete Box Set – Special Edition’ (Signed + Hand Numbered + Limited to 150 Copies).
Our Award-Winning Print Magazine
A magazine subscription is an excellent gift that arrives four times a year. This 96-page premium coffee-table quality publication is well below the industry standard, with less than 10% of its content dedicated to advertisements (full-page ads only). We are selective about our advertisers, as we value our audience’s time and interest in the content we present.
The Subscription with Free Issues: For a limited time, our ‘Stocking Stuffer’ sale offers 2 FREE issues of the magazine plus the Volume 1 Softcover of Hunting Dog Confidential for the price of a single subscription at $39.99. (Regularly $111) Due to shipping time constraints close to the holiday, we are dispatching all these subscriptions via USPS Ground Advantage instead of our traditional 1-3 week Bound Printed Matter Mailing.
Past Issues: Our past issues are considered collector’s items by many. While most issues are sold out, limited quantities of single issues from Volume Four and Volume Five are still available. For active subscribers, these issues are marked down from $12.99 to $5 each for a limited time. You must be logged in to claim this offer.
Hunting Dog Confidential Limited Print Series
Hunting Dog Confidential Book Club: Hunting Dog Confidential began as a limited-run series featuring dog stories from various times and places around the world. It eventually evolved into the first hardcover limited edition with Volume Four. This edition exceeded our expectations and sold out one week after its release. These 200-page books, free of advertisements, explore breed history, the people who dedicated their lives to dogs, the people and dogs who have passed, and everything else dear to the dog lovers in our community. A subscription to this book club guarantees a copy of Volume 5 (Spring 2024) at $5 off the cover price, plus free shipping (for a total of $29.99). For a limited time, if you subscribe, we will also send you 3 FREE softcover volumes from past issues – perfect stocking stuffers for the totally dog-obsessed in your life (or even for yourself). Active magazine subscribers can purchase past volumes for $10 each, a significant discount from the regular price of $29.99.
Celebrate the Holidays with Style and Gear
Project Upland has recently begun expanding its offerings to include both wearable merchandise and other products, such as premium vinyl stickers and coffee mugs. There’s nothing quite like staring at your best friend while sipping your morning coffee from a mug adorned with a tasteful image of that special breed. In dog math terms, even if you own a breed-specific shirt, mug, stickers, and a hooded sweatshirt, it still doesn’t mean you’re obsessed enough, but you can certainly try.
Dog Breed and Wild Bird T-Shirts and Sweatshirts: Project Upland continuously adds new dog breed and wild bird designs each month to our extensive collection of wearable gear. The current breeds represented include the English Setter, German Shorthaired Pointer, Gordon Setter, Small Munsterlander, English Cocker, Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, American Brittany, German Wirehaired Pointer, Ruffed Grouse, and the American Woodcock. All of these designs are screen-printed on premium Bella + Canvas garments.
Stickers for Everything: Our premium vinyl stickers are waterproof, so you can place them on your truck, kennels, or even bathroom stalls without fear of damage. Choose from your favorite dog breeds to your preferred wild bird species to perfectly match your special someone’s upland obsession. These stickers are great for stocking stuffers, and you’ll get 20% OFF when you order 5 or more stickers. Feel free to mix and match while still receiving the discount. All stickers come with free shipping in the United States, with discounts applied in the cart.
Our New Coffee Mug Collection: These have sold out faster than we anticipated! But we are working hard to restock and add more designs. Our next shipment is arriving on December 11th! However, we still have a limited supply of some designs available before then. These designs include all the dog breeds mentioned above, plus more! Get 20% OFF when you order 4 or more mugs. You can mix and match and still receive the discount, with discounts applied in the cart.
Project Upland is an editorial initiative to capture the cultures and traditions of upland bird hunting. We seek to inspire a future generation of upland bird hunters to understand the essence of hunting traditions and the critical cause for conservation.
