Welcome to Dead Drift Outfitters

It’s simple, really. We were born to be with nature. Sometimes in this hectic world, we temporarily lose sight of that.
Dead Drift Outfitters is here to give you that realignment. To urge you to Step Outside.

What We Believe

We believe in many things. We believe there’s nothing like the sound of a squirrel behind your deer stand to give you that jolt of adrenaline you need. We believe it’s actually a thrill to go wet wading in a pair of sneakers in late October. We believe in sharing knowledge with others, especially children and disabled folks. We believe in supporting our soldiers. But what we most believe in at Dead Drift Outfitters is that there is nothing more important than God our Father and family.
