ABOUT US


I grew up in a family tradition of country living that included gardening, hunting, fishing, school sports and church on Sundays.  These values are still worthy of our focus today.  In June of 2011 we opened The Practical Outdoorsman with the support of our family and friends. 

The Practical Outdoorsman is a retail and consignment store located on New Leicester Highway in Asheville, North Carolina.  Our goals are simple:  to provide products and services that outdoorsmen in our area want, at the best possible price.  No hype, no fluff, just plain old-fashioned value.  Since we are lifelong outdoorsmen , we are often able to refer our customers to other quality businesses and people when we cannot meet the need ourselves.

Everything we do is not about the bottom line-the last figure on a financial profit-and-loss statement.  We believe that when we help people, we benefit ourselves.  This approach to business may not be common, but is the way we have chosen to do it.  Since we opened we have met many great people in the community and made some cherished friends as well.

We are blessed and we know it.  We give all the credit for our success to God.  Our hope is that as we grow, you will join us on our journey.
