Art Wheaton, outdoor writer and author of Grouse Country: Gunning with the Old Pats Society
On this week’s episode of the Project Upland Podcast, Art Wheaton, lifelong upland bird hunter, Maine resident, and author of the recently-released Grouse Country: Gunning with the Old Pats Society joins the show.
During our conversation, Art and I discuss where he got his start as an upland bird hunter. We talk about his love for Parker shotguns as well as his years of handling bird dogs. We also talk about his recent book, Grouse Country: Gunning with the Old Pats Society.
The book dives deep into the founding and history of the Old Pats Society. “Pats” meaning partridge in New England fashion. As a former employee of Remington this society has deep roots in that legacy as well as the collecting of Parker shotguns.
