Ug. That's terribly good?Something additional, is that certain people have produced one thing that mystifies and captures, and then kind of went a different direction. Years back Rinella spoke about this short story, "The Ledge", by Lawrence Sargent Hall. It's a father-son duck hunting story, and smacks your heart upside the ventricle like maybe nothing else I've read. So if only producing one work of "outdoor writing" counts, I'd count this guy.

Really? I pictured you more of a J.K. Rowling person...
"Keep Hammering"... never heard of it. Care to enlighten? Thanks.As Doris Kearns Goodwin once wrote;
"There are two novels that can change a bro's life: Harry Potter and Keep Hammering. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves wizards."*

This one by McKean was one of my favorites. https://www.outdoorlife.com/story/hunting/old-school-blue-jean-mule-deer-hunt/Writer vs storyteller is an important distinction to me.
I love reading anything Andrew McKean writes. The thought and effort that goes into his writing is apparent and it makes for an excellent read.
