In August 2015, Shockey and his daughter Eva appeared on the cover of USA Today Hunt + Fish. The article within the Summer/Fall 2015 edition touches on the strength of their relationship, the importance of the outdoors and how Eva has become the new face of hunting. And, in November 2017, Outdoor Life featured Shockey on the cover of their “The Influencers” edition. The article within the December 2017/January 2018 issue tackled the legacy of modern hunting's most influential celebrity -- from Shockey's humble beginnings, his 30-plus year career, his hunting philosophy (Shockey argues the “trophy hunting” terminology needs to be changed to “selective hunting.”), his thoughts on conservation (which boil down to supply-and-demand economics), and the balance he strikes in portraying hunting on TV and serving as a brand ambassador to the biggest names in the industry.
