Watertown, SD (PRWEB) December 29, 2011
Joshua Spies' new release, "The Pursuit" was recently featured on the cover of the Safari Club International catalog.
The Safari Club International catalog is printed annually and distributed to more than 45,000 SCI members in the US.
"Because Josh was the Safari Club International 2011 Artist of the Year and his work fit our catalog so well, we chose "The Pursuit" as our cover," Kiki Kuhns, Boyt Harness Marketing Director said.
This is only the second time in its history the catalog has had an artist's work featured on the cover. The first was Jon Banovich's "Big Ivory" in 2007.
