Sports Afield Magazine: Sports Afield Magazine is America??s original outdoor magazine, founded in 1887. It is devoted to people who share a passion for high-end sporting pursuits, especially big-game hunting in North America and Africa. The magazine focuses primarily on hunting bears, elk, moose, caribou, trophy whitetails and mule deer, and bighorn sheep, as well as African plains game and dangerous animals such as Cape buffalo, lion, and leopard. In-depth articles about upland hunting for species such as quail and pheasant are also featured. Coverage of fine guns, optics, clothing, and equipment is an essential part of the magazine.
