New York, NY -( If October’s Field & Stream looks familiar, that’s because the illustration (titled “King of the Mountain,” by artist Stephen P. Hughes) is a modern twist on one of the magazine’s most famous covers ever, which was on newsstands about a century ago, in November 1915.

“I wanted to retain the confidence and spaciousness of the original.” Hughes tells Field & Stream, “It felt like I was working with a tangible piece of the magazine’s history, which was great.”

October’s cover pays homage to an iconic moment in Field & Stream’s 120-year history; while it draws attention to the technological advances that outdoorsman enjoy today, it reminds readers of the timeless joys of celebrating the outdoor experience.

The New and Improved 50 Best Guns Ever Made:

Eight years have passed, and much has changed. Guns have come and gone, and this list couldn't be more different than the last one.

In any event, here it is online: the 2015 Field & Stream 50 Best Guns Ever Made.
