The Total Outdoors Manual: 374 Skills You Need” for a comprehensive “Rabid” review. For more than 100 years, Field & Stream magazine has provided expert advice on every aspect of the outdoor life, including hunting, fishing, conservation, & wilderness survival.
The magazine's annual Total Outdoorsman issue is one of its most popular, read by over nine million sporting enthusiasts.
Loaded with TONS of practical information for both the beginner & advanced outdoorsman (and arm chair sportsman) and is an authoritative, comprehensive, & entertaining guide that outlines essential skills that will enable almost anyone to master the outdoors and hunt, fish and camp like an expert. Learn how to hunt better, fish smarter, survive anything and camp anywhere. While the book can be thumbed through in a couple hours, it would take a lifetime to absorb all of the skills, ideas and suggestions outlined within its pages.
While reading, I was constantly dog-earing pages that outlined skills previously unknown to me and laughing at hints like properly digging a booty hole (tip #50), expertly gigging frogs (tip #220), chumming fish with a dead raccoon (tip #75) and roasting the perfect marshmallow (tip #60).
The Total Outdoorsman Manual should be on every sportsmans book shelf and serve as a reminder to what we should all strive to be as out of doors minded individuals . . . knowledgeable, practiced and witty.
The book has an MSRP of $25.00 but I am raffling away several free copies to those individuals who post a comment to this posting telling me why they so desperately need a copy! Thanks!
