1Campfire was created by hunters.
By hunters that could not understand how in a world where local, organic, free-range, and sustainable food procurement were so popular, hunting could be so grossly misunderstood.
By hunters concerned with the absurd, often toxic, and utterly non-constructive way critically important environmental subjects like wildlife populations, habitat and ecosystem protection, and wilderness access were being dealt with in the digital era.
By hunters that finally realized… we had ourselves to blame.
We weren’t telling our full story. At least not in a way that connected with and made sense to other outdoor enthusiasts.
To be clear, we are proud to be hunters. But, we have done a poor job of inviting others into our world.
1Campfire was built to address this problem. To bring people that love the outdoors together. To inspire constructive dialogue. To tackle tough, but no less critical subjects.
Where inclusivity, empathy, and an open mind are the rule, not the exception.
Regardless of your outdoor lifestyle, we invite you to pull up a seat and learn more about what it means to be a hunter in the modern era. We’re not as different as you may think.
We want to share and listen to the stories of wilderness, wildlife, and common ground.
