The Field & Stream Total Outdoor Challenge presented by Mobil 1 rolls into Manteca this Saturday and Sunday with free events, prizes and the chance to win big money.

 Now in its seventh year, the annual coast-to-coast competition to name the most competent sportsman in the land will also feature a special event for just kids, the Total Outdoors-Kid Challenge with free outdoor activities, prizes and giveaways.

The Field & Stream Total Outdoorsman Challenge will take place for two-days only, Saturday, April 17, and Sunday, April 18, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Manteca Bass Pro Shops. Competitors can enter for free and showcase their skills in bait casting, air rifle and archery competitions. (Competitors must bring their own archery and baitcasting equipment.)  Spectators and participants at the events will also be able to sign up to win great prizes, including Rocky Boots, given away at each store, and a trip for two to Big Cedar Lodge.  Please visit www.totaloutdoorsmanchallenge.com for complete details.

Kids will be joining in the fun this year with the new “Total Outdoors-Kid Challenge.”  A fun and free event taking place at Bass Pro Shops Saturday, April 17, and Sunday, April 18, from noon to 3 p.m. with prizes for all. The young outdoorsmen will be able to participate in fun, friendly challenges like bucket fishing, archery, life-jacket races and the sleeping bag roll-up.  They can also enjoy other free activities like drawstring bag coloring, knot-tying lessons, the Total Outdoors-Kid Activity booklet and prizes at the Prize Wheel - all while supplies last.

“If you’re an outdoorsman, this is your Olympics,” said Dan Dugger, Manager of the Manteca Bass Pro Shops. “This event is a great way to have some fun with the whole family, win some prizes and maybe even walk away with $25,000 and a new ATV.”

Field & Stream editors will evaluate the local qualifier results to cull the top 200 participants to contend in one of four regional qualifying events taking place in June 2010.  Participants who place in the top three positions at the regional qualifiers will then advance to the final championship, where they will face off against the top three finishers from the 2009 Total Outdoorsman Challenge as well as one “wildcard” competitor selected from online submissions at www.totaloutdoorsmanchallenge.com. The Total Outdoorsman Challenge will culminate in an intensive, three-day, final championship event at Dogwood Canyon Nature Park in Missouri, Sept. 9-11, 2010, pitting 16 of the nation’s top outdoorsmen in head-to-head competition in seven outdoor skill challenges:  fly-fishing, bass fishing, rifle, shotgun, endurance, archery and ATV handling.

“If you love hunting, fishing and camping then you’ve likely been training for this event your entire life,” says Anthony Licata, editor of Field & Stream. “Being a Total Outdoorsman means you approach every outdoor experience as an opportunity to grow your skills and have fun doing it, and that’s exactly what this whole competition is about. It’s a chance to celebrate the outdoors and earn big money and bragging rights all for doing what you love.”

The May issue of Field & Stream (on newsstands now) features “The Total Outdoorsmen Guide Book” with instruction from five of the nation’s most successful hunting and fishing guides.

There is no fee to enter the Field & Stream Total Outdoorsman Challenge Presented by Mobil 1 and each event is open to the public. Anyone is invited to cheer on sportsmen from all walks of life as they test their abilities across a wide range of outdoor disciplines.
