In Search of Outdoor Adventure in the American West
Welcome to Basin & Range Outdoors
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. ~Theodore Roosevelt
Basin & Range Outdoors was created to share the adventures experienced by two brothers in the American West. From the highest alpine terrains to the lowest sonoran deserts we will chronicle the pain and triumph that accompanies all of our outdoor pursuits.
There will be no high-fence hunts, no fly fishing lodges, no streamside caviar and wine breaks. Instead, you can expect cold nights sleeping in the dirt, flat tires on old trucks, and big dreams realized on small budgets. With Basin & Range Outdoors you will find useful reviews of hunting and fly fishing products, techniques, locations, and a general review of our outdoor expeditions on public land.

A Rare Occurrence...
After hooking a hard fighting Big Creek rainbow, this monster bull trout came out the depths to join the battle. The bull trout clamped down on the smaller rainbow and never let go. Although the bull was never hooked, he held on until I was able to land him. The bull trout was released unharmed but the rainbow was in bad shape. More pictures to come.... ~ D. Emerick
