Today, the Field & Stream editors are pleased to unveil our first major website redesign since 2006. The new design loads faster; features more space for photos, videos, and big stories; and includes an enhanced Answers and commenting system to help you learn from, and chat with, fellow readers.

Our homepage has undergone the most extensive change. It now has more room for the ambitious stories fans have come to expect from Field & Stream and lets these pieces stand out, with big, beautiful photos and dynamic (and mobile-friendly) design. Just take a look at Scott Bestul’s new story “The Seven Best Days of the Rut.” Also, our original videos now have a permanent place on the homepage, so you can quickly find the latest how-to, recipe, or adventure clip without having to navigate far. The best part: daily posts, feature stories, and videos alike look as good on mobile devices as they do on desktop.

We want to remain the premium online hub for all things hunting and fishing—so if we missed something, we want to hear about it. Tell us what you love and what needs our attention. You can email us at; put “New Website” in the subject line. We promise to keep delivering the greatest outdoor content—but now with improved web functionality and design, so you can trust that we’re taking these suggestions seriously.

Below, we’ve outlined additional changes for registered users, but feel free to go ahead and jump to these great new stories:

-The first time you sign in, you’ll have the chance to answer a few questions about how you hunt and fish. We want to keep delivering the type of content you want to see, and this quick survey will help us better do that.

-The user photo uploads on the Bragging Board and Trophy Room pages are gone, but we still want to see your snapshots. Share them with us on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #FSafield. You can still share photos on our site using our popular Answers section, too.

-The leaderboard is gone temporarily, but don’t worry: Points are still being tracked, and all points and ranks from the old site will be retained.
