OUR

STORY

Traumatic Impact Outdoors was created when two mid-twenty year old guys thought it would be neat to film their passion of the outdoors and hunting. This passion has turned into a blooming business and they have no intentions of stopping!

      Traumatic Impact Outdoors, LLC was started in the early part of 2016 by a couple of mid 20-year old’s looking to show off their hunting and cinematography skills. We have since gained a Pro Staff and Field Staff Team who shares the same love for hunting, cinematography, and public services as we do. From bear to waterfowl, if there's a season we hunt it. 

      With well over a century in hunting experience combined, we all have a passion for the sport that is hunting. Traumatic Impact Outdoors did not just pop up out of no where, Co-owners Jared and Jordan grew up listening to stories and re-lived the hunts told by family and friends. The days of Traumatic Impact Outdoors date back to the early 1960's where family and friends hunted places like Maine, Colorado, British Columbia, the Yukon, and Alaska. Those stories of iconic hunts and trips were documented with cameras of the era and those photographs are available to view in our gallery.

Thomas Fritsch

Field Staff

     "In a civilized and cultivated country wild animals only continue to exist at all when preserved by sportsmen. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wild life, are ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping the larger and more valuable wild creatures from total extermination."  -Theodore Roosevelt 

     Thomas holds the value held within this quote to be fundamental. He had many whom enriched his youth by sharing their time and experience with him. Thomas learned animal behavior while picking berries, fishing, and scouting. Very early on Thomas became fascinated with black bears. This became a true passion for him. Early in his youth observing bears at the dump; a common pastime, picking berries from the same bush that a small bear was, and his first large bear seen was bigger around than the burn barrel and taller than the tractor. Thomas hunts because it's an integrated part of his heritage. He only hopes he has been able to inspire and enrich the next generation to the value of hunting. This is priceless in his mind.
