Last week, we showcased the most popular Hatch Magazine stories of 2019. As is the norm, those top 10 stories of the past year was a mixed bag that included not only stories that were the favorites of our readers, but of our editors and contributors, as well. But, in addition to each year's reader favorites, there are always a pile of stories that the folks that help bring you Hatch Magazine want to highlight.

This collection is similarly varied—travel stories, fishing and hunting tales, conservation coverage, political coverage and more. Here are this year's selections.
