movies about hunting, fishing and the great outdoors

I love movies like A River Runs Through It and the Old Man in the Sea, or the Ghost and the Darkness, but there seems to be only a few movies that are set in the great outdoors and show great scenes about hunting and fishing. Can anyone recommend their favorite outdoor, hunting or fishing movies?

Not really a hunting (at least in the traditional sense) or fishing film but definitely an outdoors film -The Edge - with Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin is a favorite of mine.

Welcome to the forum FYager.

edited to add: or how about John Wayne and Howard Hawks' Hatari. Just a so-so movie but maybe The Roots of Heaven with Trevor Howard and in a small role Errol Flynn. Always glad to have the opportunity to mention my two favorite actors - John Wayne and Errol Flynn.

It bores me to death, but Legends of the Fall fits the bill.

Deliverance. But it isn't known for its hunting and fishing segments.

The delightful "Gone Fishin'" with Joe Pesci and Danny Glover is probably about fishing (although I think there's an alligator in it at one point)
