Welcome to The Bloke! The Bloke was set up with the purpose of gathering information into a resource for people heading out into the outdoors - be that in the form of tramping, backpacking or shooting. A lot of this website is me simply documenting things as I learn. I won’t claim to be an expert, but I do enjoy sharing what I find out.

This isn’t a site for proxy outdoorsman. So not many trip stories. The goal is provide you with the knowledge to get out there and make your own adventures.

So, recent articles are to the right, navigate to your area of interest in the menus above – or just click one of the buttons below to keep exploring!

Gear reviews, techniques and courses – all information to help you get out in the backcountry more confidently, comfortably and safely. Click the link to go to our outdoors reviews and techniques section. Take me outdoors!
From long range target shoot, to up close and personal IPSC Pistol, with some hunting to provide meat thrown in for good measure. A mix of cutting edge technology and old school techniques – learn more about firearms, shooting and hunting. Click the link to go to our shooting and hunting section. Take me to the range!
