Taking a well-deserved adult vacation offers joyful predictability. There’s time off to do what you want, visit places that you’ve maybe never seen before, and return home with some great photos of friends and family. Then, for most of us, it’s back to a predictable grind. By mid-week, we’re back to being the same employee or boss that we were when we packed up and headed out for vacation. 

What The National Center for Outdoor & Adventure Education (NCOAE) offers outdoor enthusiasts — including adults who are curious about backcountry travel — is an alternative to your typical adult vacation. We prepare, set up, and guide life changing adventure-based adult education courses for anyone looking to learn new skills — or those sharpening existing skills in the outdoors, enabling them to return to daily life with new insights into leadership and how to protect our natural resources.

Ruger Wrangler Bonanza! – NEW 7.5″, 6.5″, and 3.75″ Barrel Offerings

The Ruger Wrangler has been incredibly popular since its inception for being a quality and extremely affordable single-action revolver. There is virtually nothing that can compete with it at its current street price of $200 in regards to quality. Now, Ruger has announced that they have 3 new barrel length offerings – 7.5″, 6.5″, and 3.75″ – in their common colorways of a Burnt Bronze, Silver, and Black Cerakote.

Ruger Coverage on AllOutdoor

The Ruger Wrangler broke the revolver industry’s perception of what could be possible as far as a low price-point and simultaneously maintaining quality. Couple that with popular designs like a bird’s head grip, varying Cerakote colors, and even some hardwood grips for the traditionalists in the audience (this includes me), and you can see why the Ruger Wrangler is such a wheelgun favorite. To expand on that popularity they have introduced 3 new barrel

The new Mossberg 940 Pro Tactical Holosun Micro Dot Combo

High-octane shooting sports like 3-gun and multi-gun competitions aren’t just for the pros anymore. With the introduction of a lot of new and more affordable competition-style guns, more and more “normal” people like myself are getting into the shooting sports scene. Mossberg understands this too and wants to provide its customers with ready-to-go firearm offerings that will get them out of their houses and onto the flat range. As part of this effort, Mossberg has added the new 940 Pro Tactical Holosun Mocro Dot combo to its lineup which gives customers an optic-ready competition shotgun option that doesn’t require searching for a suitable optic.

After Chuck Grado made the shot on a nearly 200-inch whitetail last month, his mind went straight to his wife, Ruth Macke. Sitting alone in a treestand in the fading light, he typed out a cryptic, nerve-rattled text: “30+her Byckr Hera. <omE now. 4 Bucks here.”

Ruth, who was back at their home in Cedar Rapids, saw the text and figured he was still shaking in the stand. She wouldn’t see the buck herself until the following morning, but she already knew that whatever her husband had killed was special.

“I think your typos answered my question about shaking,” she replied.

The Hunt for the 20-Point Buck

It was the day after Thanksgiving, and Grado had been in the stand all afternoon by the time the 20-point buck stepped into view. Perched in an oak tree over a well-worn game trail between the river bottom and a wheat field, he’d
