Outdoor Life

Traditions Unchanged • Our hunting and fishing culture is alive and well

Traditions Passed Down

Bloodlines • One hunter’s decision—to swap a compound for a recurve—has the power to shape the way three generations hunt

Strebbie’s Gun • A hunter’s legacy lives on in an unremarkable, and irreplaceable, shotgun

Choir in the Pines • Flushing bobwhites, laughter, and plenty of trash talk make up the song of the Red Hills

This Happened to Me! • Bret Paulson of Lewiston, Idaho, survives a hellish tumble in elk country

Traditions Lost

The Boomer Legacy • For decades the author’s generation dominated the hunting culture. Now, as it retires from the sport, what is it leaving behind?

Is Trapping in America on the Brink of Extinction, or at the Beginning of a Comeback? • Low fur prices, anti-trapping laws—and an increase in participation?

Furbearers Are the Ultimate Renewable Resource

America Needs Trapping

New Traditions

Birds of a Feather • Turkey hunting with dear old Dad is an exercise in trying not to kill each other. It’s also a hunt I look forward to every year

Little Giants • Young guns rip it up on the Mississippi River for the Junior World Championship

Here to Stay • New hunters and anglers are allies, not competition

Field & Stream

Welcome to the Danger Issue

The Danger Issue • Hunters don’t go looking for danger. The ultimate goal of any adventure is to come back safe. (Well, that and with a punched tag.) But most hunters will agree that the chance of danger is part of the draw. Why? Because you have a better story to tell when you do come home—a story like the ones you’re about to enjoy.

Contract Killers • As invasive Burmese pythons choke the life out of South Florida, it’s down to a loose-knit group of thrill-seeking—and in some cases government-paid—bounty hunters to get rid of them

Close Calls: Mauled! • In May of this year, longtime angler and fossil hunter Jeffrey Heim was free diving in Florida’s Myakka River, looking for megalodon teeth for his fossil business, SHRKco. He found teeth, but not the ones he was after

A Perfect Monster • The classic safari stories from the likes of Robert Ruark and Peter Capstick transformed the Cape buffalo into a four-legged fiend hell-bent on killing any hunter in its path. But drawing from his own hunting experience in Africa, the author calls into question our fear of this dangerous game

Close Calls: Stabbed! • During a 2015 fishing trip, three men lost control of the marlin they were hoisting into the boat—and Russell Ching was the one on the wrong end of the bill

Fire & Steel • Matt Mendes became one of the premier fly fishing guides in Oregon because of a fierce, burning obsession with steelhead. But now, as fish returns on the Deschutes River worsen year after year, Mendes, and his tribe, must reckon with an uncertain future

Close Calls: Thrown! • On October 7, the first day of Newfoundland’s 2017 moose season, Rodney Buffett spotted a 14-point bull and shot it, twice. Then he made a mistake he says he’ll never repeat

The Showstoppers • British dangerous-game guns define an era of hair-raising hunts in faraway places. These vintage big-bores are just what you'd want for staring death in the face

Close Calls: Bitten! • In January 2020, Tim Hardy of Philadelphia, Mississippi, had been running hounds for deer, which is legal in the Magnolia State. He and his buddy were almost back to the...
