New Magazines (Really): Garden and Gun

March 23, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

Having been born and partially raised in Charleston, South Carolina, I am not surprised by this story, but you may be. Pierre Manigault, chairman of the local newspaper publishing company, recently announced plans to launch a new magazine called Garden and Gun. “Based on some of the prototypes, Garden & Gun assumes more the feel of Town & Country than Mother Jones. The emphasis is on sports — the southern staples like duck and quail hunting, but also activities that don’t require a rifle, such as fly-fishing — and there are stories about architecture and natural habitats of the South.” Jennifer Saba in Editor and Publisher.
