If your heart skips at the sound of a bugling elk and your spirit soars with the flight of a falcon, you’ve found the right website. At Ron Spomer Outdoors we discover the joys and thrills of the great outdoors. Whether birding, hunting, hiking, photographing, shooting, fishing, camping or foraging, we share our adventures and discoveries while embracing our roles as Nature’s hunter-conservationists. We do not hold ourselves apart from nature as 3rd party observers, but recognize ourselves as integral participants.
As an author, photographer and television host, I work to express the special relationship between humans and this delightful, sustaining planet on which we live as hunters & gatherers. After more than 36 years at this “job,” I have experienced the impressive collections of emotions each of us feels about when we reflect on our relationships with wildlife and wild places. These stories can not be adequately described through articles, photography and videos -- but it’s a start.

Pocket Binocular Perfection I guess we, the buying public, are to blame. We've got that all-American "bigger is better" syndrome. But optics manufacturers should know better. Ten-power pocket binoculars just aren't all that...Read more →
In springtime young hunters' thoughts turn toward love -- of turkey hunting. Unless they lust for an elk hunt, in which case Argentina's red stags will do nicely. Red stags (red deer) are...Read more →
