#39 | Side By Side Shotguns, Wingshooting, Gun Fit and more with Doug Stewart – Project Upland Podcast

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.

The book can also be purchased on Amazon.

About the Book: “King of the Upland Bird Guns is a fantastic guide to the rich tradition of hunting upland game birds using side by side shotguns.  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.”

About Doug Stewart: “Doug Stewart is a 50 year old health and fitness trainer. In his spare time, he loves to hunt birds and collect double guns. Doug is a traditionalist with old school morals and ethics. The uplands allow him to connect with God and nature as he enjoys His wonderful creation. He lives in Loveland, Colo. with his wife Jamie, daughter Samara, and bird dog Emma.”

  • Great Podcast and information! I’m glad to have come across this and I’m looking forward to listening to all the older posts. As an avid hunter I’m always looking for more knowledge that might make the difference in a good day and a mediocre day, never had a bad day hunting.
    I also find the SxS the gun of choice so this cast was especially good.

    When hunting I find my fathers old saying, Experience is what you get right after you needed it, to be so try so I enjoy sharing your experiences!
