Wildcard Application Deadline July 6

New York, NY-The field is nearly full for this September's Field & Stream Total Outdoorsman Challenge-presented by MOBIL 1-the country's only nationwide competition to determine the best all-around sportsman or -woman. Event organizers announced today that applications for the competition's only wildcard spot are due by July 6, 2008. The winner of the Field & Stream Total Outdoorsman Challenge will receive $25,000 in cash and prizes and a spread in Field & Stream. For more information, including a wildcard application, visit www.fieldandstream.com/totaloutdoorsman.

"This event is all about performance in the outdoors," says Anthony Licata, editor of Field & Stream. "The competition for the wildcard spot is going to be stiff, so we're really looking for someone who stands out and can prove that they should compete with the best of the best."

Hundreds of hunters and anglers have already entered the Field & Stream Total Outdoorsman Challenge at 25 stops across the country, testing their skills at fly-casting, baitcasting, archery and air rifle events. The top 12 competitors from these events and one lucky wildcard applicant will go on to face last year's winners at the finals in Springfield, MO, September 12-14. There competitors must prove their mettle at six different outdoor challenges with the overall winner walking away with $25,000 in cash and prizes and coverage in Field & Stream.

"This is a big country with a lot of dedicated and talented outdoorsmen," says Licata. "Even with more than 20 stops, we know that we didn't quite hit everyone's neighborhood, and we're sure there's some undiscovered talent out there."

Licata encouraged anyone applying for the wildcard spot to include video and or photos to backup their claims. Previous wildcard applicants have submitted videos from hunts as well as photos from fishing and hunting trips. All applicants must be able to provide a valid hunting license and be at least 21 years old.
