Description

One of the most popular outdoors books ever is back in a totally revised and updated edition Featuring the greatest hits and deep cuts from over a decade of Field & Stream's beloved Total Outdoorsman feature and 100+ new tips for everything from duck hunting to campsite cooking to fighting a grizzly bear with your bare hands (hint: it's a bad idea ).

With practical information for the beginner and advanced outdoorsman, from skills and tools to activities and challenges there's something for everyone in the essential volume. Chapters cover how to:

Camp Anywhere. Pitch a tent on the snow, build a fire in the rain, or bed down on a pile of leaves. Or maybe kick back by a nice bonfire, cook up a pot of squirrel stew, and delight your campmates with the most outrageous tall tales. It's all covered here

Fish Smarter. Whether you're bobber-fishing for crappies with the kids, spending a relaxed day on a bass boat at the lake, or heading into big surf on the trophy-fishing adventure of a lifetime, this book has your covered.

Hunt Better. From small-game techniques to how to bag a moose or elk, or take your limit in upland birds or waterfowl, with a rifle, shotgun, or bow and arrow, there are tips and tricks for every kind of hunter.

Survive Anything. Outdoor trips don't always go as planned. But with the advice in this book, you've got what you need to prevail. How to keep from getting lost, what to do if you do wander off trail or get trapped by weather, how to signal for help, and get home safely.

Camp anywhere. Fish smarter. Hunt better. Survive anything. BE A TOTAL OUTDOORSMAN.
