Outing was a monthly sports magazine published in the United States from 1882 to 1923. The magazine was founded by the writer and editor James H. Hyde and focused primarily on outdoor pursuits such as hunting, fishing, and camping.Image:outing-sample-cover

Outing featured a mix of articles, photography, and illustrations covering a wide range of sports and outdoor activities, including baseball, football, tennis, bicycling, and more. The magazine also featured travel articles and sections on firearms, boats, and other outdoor gear.

One of the most notable features of Outing was its emphasis on women and sports. The magazine recognized women as serious athletes and devoted significant coverage to their achievements in a time when many other publications ignored women in sports.

Outing also played an important role in the development of American football, covering the sport extensively and advocating for standardized rules and regulations. The magazine's editors worked closely with the leaders of the sport to promote safety and fair play.

In addition to its coverage of sports and outdoor pursuits, Outing also included fiction and poetry from some of the leading writers of the day, including Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Today, Outing is remembered as an important publication in the history of American sports journalism, documenting the growth and development of organized sports in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.{{Categories}}
