Rogue Outdoorsman

My name is David Briggs. I am a 10th generation Sportsman and Naturalist. I created this website to provide accurate news and information to serve the outdoor sporting community. I never quite fully committed to any one outdoor sport. I did it all. I wanted to try everything. It made me a pretty well rounded sportsman. I chose to make my contribution to my family's tradition by creating an easy to use website to read about outdoor sports and wildlife news around the country. My goal is to create a place where readers can gain insight on the best practices and results discussed in our articles. Our family's tradition of caring for the land encouraged my ancestors to fan out across the country to find their idea of heaven on earth. I found myself settled in the Rogue Valley. I love to spend my free time exploring the forest and trying out new sporting activities. We provide news and information free of political statements.
