Oct. 13, 2008 - PRLog -- Ladysmith, WI – Paul Fuchs has been an avid hunter since he was a child, and since his teens, has had the desire to hunt elk out West.  However, dreams and desires to hunt a specific species such as elk sometimes get stopped short when a financial reality check steps in.  That’s when Paul and his wife, Sherri, put their heads together and came up with the idea of developing a website, devoted to hunting and fishing enthusiasts, giving outdoorsmen an opportunity to meet and trade hunts.  

Some have jokingly referred to the site as an on-line dating service for hunters.  The reality of being able to meet other outdoorsmen and find new places to hunt or fish, whether it be in your home state, a neighboring state or across the U.S. or Canada is here, thanks to the world wide web and its millions of users.

Becoming a member of Outdoorsman Exchange opens up countless opportunities to new hunting and fishing adventures.  In a members profile, hunters/fishermen list what species they hunt or fish and where – whether on private or public land – and what species they’d like to hunt or fish.  For example:  A member in Ohio is offering a guided whitetail bow hunt which includes lodging and meals in exchange for a whitetail, caribou, antelope, mountain goat, cougar, elk, mule deer, moose, bear or turkey bow hunt.  

Outdoorsman Exchange sets itself apart from other hunting swap sites by its unique concept, set up, and website design.  It’s not a site for advertisers; nor is it a forum, is a site for hunters and fishermen to post their hunting swap and contact other members who have similar exchange interests.  An example of its unique design is the ability to search a specific species or location, minimizing time sifting through exchange listings.  A recent search for elk hunting opportunities found offerings in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Alberta, Canada.   The site also protects each member’s identity to reduce spiders looking for e-mail addresses to send Spam.  

Outdoorsman Exchange facilitates the arrangements by offering listings of potential exchangers on their website.  You can find an exchange partner by posting an exchange or answering someone else’s.  Benefits include: the opportunity to hunt with an experienced hunter/fishermen who are familiar with the area; eliminates the price tag of a guide,  provides the possibility of free lodging and meals, and possible access to your exchange partner’s equipment, such as stands, blinds, etc..  Exchange arrangements are set up between the members.  As with any business transaction, it’s important to ask questions – lots of questions, making sure that both exchange parties understand the exchange arrangements that are being made.  To help eliminate any misunderstandings, the site also offers examples of written contracts that can be used by the exchangers. is a newer website and is raising awareness of hunting swap possibilities by offering a common meeting place and by building a network of fishing and hunting enthusiasts.  Their intention is to build the largest network of hunting and fishing enthusiasts looking to trade excursions at an affordable price.
