Strung Magzine, Spring 2023

"Stephen Collector's words and photographs have graced our pages in the past, but perhaps never so lovingly as with this story of his Brittany's last hunt. Stephen opens up about coming to terms with uncomfortable truths, both canine and human." wrote editor, Trey Reed about my magazine feature, Finley's Last Hurrah, where I become grudgingly resigned to the fact that my bird dog's career as hunter has come to a heartbreaking end out on the barren plains of eastern Colorado.
