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.

Summer Scouting 2010 (June 19th)

Well I started my off-season scouting this past weekend by heading into the woods to look around and set a few game cameras.  I spent Saturday glassing, looking for sheds, and setting cameras.  It was hot!!!  I am always amazed by the suns power.  It can suck every ounce of energy from your muscles.  Granted... I'm not in very good shape (yet!!!), but by the end of the day Saturday I was so happy to get back to my truck and the air conditioning.

I set three game cameras in proximity to two different tanks.  I was very happy to find numerous deer, bear, and turkey tracks around both tanks.  Hopefully in a couple weeks I have good pictures to share.
