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.

Getting Even

I can't say enough about Randy Ulmer’s article “Getting Even”. I have no doubt that this is one of the finest pieces of writing I have ever read, and proves Dr. Ulmer to be the real deal. His personal reflections about fatherhood and family while laying in the blistering sun, rationing water for numerous hours, really inspired me. Not to mention the incredible 242” non-typical mule deer takes with his bow.

Check out Dr. Randy Ulmer's website www.randyulmer.com/

And definetely take a few minutes to read his article: GETTING EVEN !
