Warfighter Outfitters / Team Overland / Veterans Back40 Adventures is hosting a free campout weekend. We are attempting to host a trifecta of all our organizations skillsets together in 1 spot. Boats, Bikes, and Overland rigs all together to host a nice weekend getaway for Veterans and their families to relax and enjoy themselves. If this sounds like an event that you would enjoy please sign up, but if you sign up we are expecting you to show up. If for any reason you need to cancel please cancel your ticket right away so another Veteran family can make it out.
Warfighter outfitters will have boats on site for the opening weekend to fish, we are hoping that the weather will cooperate and it will not be snowing. Other activates are more weather dependent so we are waiting to see how mother nature will act.
Full day of class 3/4 whitewater rafting on the North Umpqua River.
Warfighter Outfitters is hosting a free trip for Veterans to have a full day on the water with Warfighter Dustin. He and his crew are well trained whitewater guides that want to share the experience with you. Please only sign up if you can make it. The link is provided below.
In this workshop you’ll learn duck hunting basics from ODFW staff and experienced local hunters. The morning will be a brief shotgun skills class and intro to duck hunting, followed by a live hunt at EE Wilson Wildlife Area. During the morning hunt, you’ll get fast-paced and hands-on training. After the hunt, we’ll, learn about waterfowl habitat and behavior, field dress ducks so that they are ready for cooking and discuss next steps you can take to start hunting ducks in Oregon.
This workshop is designed for new hunters – or people who have experience hunting other species but want to add duck hunting to their skill set.
Duck hunting is an authentic outdoor experience and classic connection to a sustainable, wild food source. Register today for a fun-filled morning on the duck pond. We have open spots for 10 Veterans. This has been a long time in the making with ODFW.
Warfighter Outfitters is hosting a Battle Buddy Drive-by to check in on a fellow house bound Veteran. We will be meeting up at the old Albertsons parking lot at 11:30 on November 14th.
We will conduct a short convoy to Prescot & 76th St. to do our battle buddy check-in, and then we will double back to Prescot to make our way to Cascade station via 82nd Ave. We could do lunch, but in multiple groups due to covid restrictions. Famous Dave’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, and a few other options all share the same parking lot.
The Veteran we are checking in on is house bound due to Mesothelioma caused by Asbestos exposure during her deployment in 2009.
From Katy the Veteran we will be checking in on.
“I was a medic in the 437th Ground Ambulance Company during my deployment (volunteered to go) and part of the 852nd medical care detachment during the rest of my enlistment. For my deployment, the unit was tasked to provide Emergency Medical Services in every FOB and station where there was a semi permanent presence of soldiers, Marines, Navy or airmen was mostly at Arifjan and SPOD (Sea Port of Embarkation and Debarkation). SPOD is where there is a ton of asbestos and where I was exposed to it.”
Having the ability to do a buddy check can mean so much more than most even know. Lets show our support to a fellow Veteran that has not been able to leave the house for a long time.
from 13:00 to 16:00 Warfighter Outfitters will be at @curtsdiscountshooterssupply with the last of our swag for the year. Hoodies Shirts Hats Patches What we have will be it for the year. This will be first come first serve. If you would like to help get Veterans out on the water this is a great way to help us out.

We will meet in Buckeye, AZ then proceed the scenic way to Ajo, AZ. We will take a slow paced scenic tour of the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. Roads on the Monument are a combination of paved and gravel with some short rocky and sandy sections. This ride is intended for intermediate riders on full sized adventure motorcycles. Rider are responsible for their own expenses and to bring their own lunch. No cooking will be permitted on this trip but we will stop to eat near lunchtime. Ride time on the monument is anticipated at 3-4 hours but may be adjusted widely. Riders should be self sufficient and equipped to make their own minor repairs such as flat tires. After the tour is complete we will return to Buckeye.
Event Details: This will be a single day ride to explore the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.
Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is a U.S. national monument and UNESCO biosphere reserve located in extreme southern Arizona that shares a border with the Mexican state of Sonora. The park is the only place in the United States where the organ pipe cactus grows wild. Along with organ pipe, many other types of cacti and other desert flora native to the Yuma Desert section of the Sonoran Desert region grow in the park. Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is 517 sq mi (1,340 km2) in size. In 1976 the monument was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, and in 1977 95% of Organ Pipe Cactus was declared a wilderness area.
Land for the Monument was donated by the Arizona state legislature to the federal government during Prohibition knowing that the north–south road would be improved and make contraband alcohol easier to import from Mexico. In 1937 the land was officially opened as a national monument.
At the north entrance of the park is the unincorporated community of Why, Arizona; the town of Lukeville, Arizona at the park’s southern border is a border crossing point to Sonoyta, Sonora, Mexico.
Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is bordered to the northwest by Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge and to the east by the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation.
Warfighter Dave is ding a split trip this Saturday. You will hit the early morning salmon bite in the Columbia river gorge. Then you will convoy to the Willamette river falls in Oregon City for some oversized sturgeon fishing.
The Salmon have been slowing down as the run in the lower river is almost over, and this is a great way to have 2 separate amazing experiences in the same day.
ODFW has graced us with 3 more days of salmon fishing on the Columbia river. We understand there are a lot of people being evacuated and are on stand by to be evac`d. We are more than able to get someone back to the ramp ASAP if they are in need to leave early. The numbers going over Bonniville are very good right now and Warfighter Dave has been able to get limits for people every trip out so far.
Sign up on EventBrite via the links below. The days are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
This post is to inform you that the elk meat donated to Warfighter Outfitters is going to be handed out to those in need on 090520 at the Bend, Oregon Sportsman’s Warehouse parking lot between 0800 and 1200 hours (or until it’s gone).
The address for this location is 63482 NW Hunnel Road, Bend, OR 97703. Please look for our Warfighter Outfitters rigs in the parking lot. When you arrive the meat will be frozen and in the form of wrapped cuts of various shapes and sizes. Based on the expressed interest I am not sure how much we will be able to get to folks and that will be taken into consideration upon their arrival.
Please have some form of past/present military ID on hand such as a DD214, VA ID Card, State DL with Veteran verification.
We would love to be able to help everybody but we are not able to ship anything as we are a donation based 501c3 NPO.
There will likely be a second event similar to this in the future once we are able to get time to grind burger meat up. Keep an eye out on the WFO FB page for this.
Thank you for all the responses and THANK YOU for your service,
