Field and Stream magazine was founded by John P. Burkhard and Henry Wellington Wack in 1895. The company writes about hunting, fishing, and offers stories by hunters, as well as survival tips.
The company acquired its largest competitor, Forest and Stream, in 1930. This popular magazine has been sold several times over the years, most recently to the Bonnier Group in 2007.
Bonnier Group had financial difficulties in late 2016, causing them to cut staff and lay off hundreds of workers, Field and Stream personnel included.
In 2018, Field and Stream sold off their trademark for some items to Dick’s Sporting Goods, who operates Field and Stream shops, which are unrelated to the magazine.
Company headquarters for parent company Bonnier Group are located in Winter Park, Florida.
