The Absolute Limit • Some advancements in hunting gear have revolutionized the sport for the better. Others call into question the very idea of fair chase
One More Load • Why do we push ourselves to the breaking point in the outdoors—and then choose to do it again? Because it’s what we’ve always done
The Primitive Arts • As modern crossbows top 500 fps and ballistic apps spit out firing solutions, Florida artisan Ryan Gill crafts hunting tools from wood and stone and sinew—and uses them to take down deer and alligators and bison
A Limit With Wade • The author remembers his hero and mentor, when on a rare spring morning, with the moon phase just right, they caught one elusive shellcracker after another

Breaking Bass • Kristine Fischer risked it all just to make it as a pro kayak tournament angler. Now she just might be the rising star the sport needs
Off the Record • Many hunters dream of shooting a buck so big that it makes headlines. So why would a hunter who kills the trophy of a lifetime decline to have it measured and entered in the record books?
Woman on a Mission • Rue Mapp’s calling is to get more Black people involved in the outdoors. Her newest personal challenge? Learning how to hunt
Beasts of Burden • Free-roaming horses and burros are dying hard deaths on Western rangeland that’s already taxed by drought, wildfire, and habitat loss. So why don’t we do something different?
The Mule Deer Master • Michael Hirschi just might be the best public-land trophy mule deer hunter on the face of the earth. And he’s ready to share (some of) his secrets
The Record Chasers • These four anglers have devoted their lives to breaking fishing records that (almost) no one cares about
