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!
I've seen this and wondered it if was good or not..of course me..(not having any outdoor skills) would benefit from it greatly!ReplyDelete
I desperately need a copy so I can continue my non poser status as an outdoorsman!!!ReplyDelete
I am a definite beginner in all things outdoors and 2014 could be my year to learn! I was taught how to fish for Walleye last summer! If I can learn essential skills that will enable me to master the outdoors well enough to hunt, fish, camp, and survive, then I need to read it for sure! Lord knows I need to learn (tip #60) how to roast the perfect marshmallow and who knows? Maybe someday I'll be on "Naked and Afraid" and knowing tip #50 might be the difference between life or death?! Also, I need to be more knowledgeable, practiced and witty. If I come face to face with a bear in the woods, but can make him laugh, maybe he'll just pat me on the head and let me walk away..? “The Total Outdoors Manual: 374 Skills You Need” looks like a great book for the entire family :o)ReplyDelete
Obviously I need one. Ladies need outdoorsman skills you know!ReplyDelete
I have mostly changed diapers for the last 4 years.ReplyDelete
Maybe an exciting publication like this would cheer me up...
I would love to buy a copy for: my dad, an avid outdoorsman - my brother, an outdoorsman - my boyfriend's father a retired warden and outdoorsman - and once copy for myself in attemping to become more of an outdoorsman myself. I don't have that type of money, and can't get just one because of the ensuing madness of everyone trying to get their hands on the copy. I will probably buy a copy or two, but getting one free one would help with christmas for at least one person :)ReplyDelete
I'm not sure I need it, but you can never be too safe!ReplyDelete
It can help me address #8909, how to survive a bad bowel movement and bug bomb the house at the same time... or #10,982, how to tweet while duck hunting as good as the Rabid Outdoorsman...ReplyDelete
FYI, I ain't spending my hard earned cash to mail your copy, you have to come down and see me to get it. Bah humbug!Delete
It will give me something else to read on the shitter when I get tired of the Bass Pro Shops master catalog, and it will keep me alive in the Sierra (Ca) backcountry.ReplyDelete
