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.

Renowned WA Bird Hunter, A. Dipzinski, Checks in From Afield

Aaron Dipzinski checks in from the palouse with this note:

"Shot this bird near Ewan, south of Cheney on Halloween. Heard the bird cackling from the truck. Walk about 30 mins and Cali (my dog)  strikes a hard point. I walked up and the rooster flushed.  I missed with the first shot and sacked it on the second. 12 gauge Benelli supernova 5 shot 1 1/4 ounce...anything less is just embarrassing."
