Field & Stream (F&S for short) is a magazine featuring hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities in the United States. Together with Sports Afield and Outdoor Life, it is considered one of the Big Three of American outdoor publishing.

Founded in 1895 by John P. Burkhard and Henry Wellington Wack, the magazine has a readership of approximately 1 million. Depending on the season and the availability of information, the magazine may offer advice on deer, bass, birds, trout, shotguns and rifles. The magazine absorbed its chief competitor, Forest and Stream, in 1930.[2]

The magazine also offers tricks, survival tips, miscellaneous facts and sometimes a recipe. In addition to those departments, each issue contains a few featured articles. Field & Stream once worked with Sierra On-Line and Dynamix to create hunting and fishing video games, the Trophy Bass and the Trophy Hunting series.

Henry Holt and Company purchased the magazine in 1951. Holt eventually ended up being owned by CBS, who sold their magazines in a leveraged buyout led by division head Peter Diamandis. It was sold by Diamandis to the Times-Mirror Company, which sold their magazines to Time Inc. in 2001. It was one of 18 magazines sold to Bonnier Group in February 2007. While Field & Stream magazine belongs to Bonnier, the right to use the Field & Stream name on goods and services belongs to a private investment group unrelated to Bonnier and the magazine, while Dick's Sporting Goods owns the rights to the name for retail stores.

Field & Stream Shop

On August 16, 2013, Dick's Sporting Goods opened its first Field & Stream Shop in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania at the site of the former Dick's location in Cranberry (Dick's had moved to a newer location nearby in Cranberry Township in 2012), operating as a competitor to Cabela's.[3] Willie Robertson of the reality television series Duck Dynasty made a speaking appearance at a wedding at the store, with both participants dressed in camouflage,[4] as well as retired WWE wrestler Shawn Michaels (currently hosting MacMillan River Adventures on the Outdoor Channel) appearing at the store to sign autographs for the grand opening.[5] Later in the month, the store began selling AR-15 semi-automatic rifles,[6] ending the chain's 2012 self-imposed suspension of sales of certain semi-automatic firearms following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.[7] Dick's has plans to open at least two more such stores in Erie, Pennsylvania (on the site of a proposed Cabela's store that Dick's had purchased before Cabela's had a chance to buy it) and Crescent Springs, Kentucky.[3]
