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 Careless Arrow Flies During WA's Deer Opener

(by Tate Bare)
Not much to report... been out solo chasing some good bucks in a small strip of public land not far from my house in Spokane.  I put the boots to work on a ten mile loop through remarkable mule deer country.  I let one arrow fly which missed its target (see below).  I will be hitting this area hard over the next few weeks.  More to come...

I may give the deer a rest this coming weekend and get after bear again.  The berries are ripe and the bears very active in the high country.  I will keep you posted.

I missed this buck at 60 yards.
