Hovey’s Outdoor Adventures with Wm. Hovey Smith
Wm. Hovey Smith is a native Georgian whose early love of hunting took him into the woods and swamps of his home state at a young age. Almost as soon, his interest in writing developed in high school and at the University of Georgia. Later, as an Engineer officer in the U.S. Army, he started selling outdoor stories.
Hovey’s work as a Professional Geologist took him to all parts of the country, an opportunity that allowed him to hunt and write about his experiences. These writings found their way into the NRA magazines and later into the Gun Digest where Hovey is now a Corresponding Editor covering black-powder guns and hunting. He has published thousands of newspaper and magazine articles on a variety of topics as well as 14 books.
The unusual has always interested Hovey, and he became interested in black-powder hunting, bowfishing and crossbow hunting. He has also participated in hunts using more traditional methods, still occasionally going out with a knife or spear.
His books include Practical Bowfishing, Backyard Deer Hunting, and CrossBow Hunting, all of which can be ordered by clicking the book covers on the previous page.
Hovey is also a playwright, blogger, producer and filmmaker.
