Doug Stewart joins the podcast to talk about his passion for side by side shotguns as well as wingshooting and upland hunting.
On this episode of the Project Upland Podcast, I am joined by Doug Stewart, author of the recently released book “The Traditional Side by Side: King of the Upland Bird Guns.”
During our conversation we talk about Doug’s first side by side shotgun as well as why he loves these traditional bird guns so much. Doug and I delve deep into the various shotgun gauges, proper gun fit and wingshooting technique. While Doug is truly a lover of side by side shotguns, much of our conversation is relevant to any upland hunting and wingshooting enthusiast.

This book is a must-have for side by side enthusiasts, and is brilliantly written to educate both novice and experienced hunters on the tradition and beauty of the side by side shotgun.”
