If there’s one thing hunters and non-hunters alike can share, it’s the love of a good story. A collection of the best stories shared throughout the 114 years of Field & Stream magazine, about big game, loyal friends, and the respect that nature commands. From the absolute authorities on outdoor sports and adventure who have earned a reputation for quality writing, plus classic tales from literary greats, The World’s Best Hunting Stories brings together the most talented, engaging, and experienced voices to share their stories from the field.
Field & Stream’s experts share their favorite true-life tales with some harrowing and touching words on the art of the hunt. Travel to the black forest of Germany with Dave Petzal, go with Susan Casey on her first elk hunt, and tag along with one of the youngest, most deserving hunters to ever leave an impression on Bill Heavey. With tales of bear drives and dicey bowhunts, record harvests and sassy trail guides, poachers in Africa, caribou on tribal lands, replicating moose mating calls and the one that got away, there’s a story for every hunter, outdoorsman and adventure enthusiast.
