Bozeman, MT. (October 20th, 2020) – MYSTERY RANCH, an industry-leading backpack company devoted to making mission-specific packs is eager to bring attention to the Field Outrider program that longtime partner, Modern Huntsman has recently launched. MYSTERY RANCH is pleased to say that the company will be involved in the project in a variety of ways, including representation on the panel of judges from Director of Marketing, Ryan Holm.

Modern Huntsman’s Field Outrider is a creative competition to discover and promote the work of established and aspiring artists from dynamic backgrounds. Hunting, fishing, and outdoor creatives are certainly welcome, but the goal of the project is to reach beyond the comfort zone of the industry and collaborate with any aspiring artist from any background. Field Outrider is a vehicle to place work in front of some of the top minds in photography, media, and marketing, and ultimately offer the opportunity to be published in Modern Huntsman.

“We want to open up our platform to a wider range of creatives, while at the same time continuing our mission to elevate the level of photography that we publish and the stories that we tell.” Stated Tyler Sharp CEO & Editor in Chief of Modern Huntsman. “We want to give opportunities to new voices for recognition, mentorship, and paid commissions.”

Some of the world’s most recognized creative judges will be assessing the contest’s submissions. This group of ten judges will be selecting the best work from eight categories, publishing it in Volume Six of Modern Huntsman, commissioning editorial assignments, and much more. This group includes MYSTERY RANCH Director of Marketing, Ryan Holm.

“The choicest way to unearth your beliefs is to observe novel ideas from talents with different backgrounds, notably on a subject matter that you acutely comprehend.” — Ryan Holm.

About Modern Huntsman:

We are a collective of photographers, filmmakers, writers that produces stories for like-minded conservationists, creatives, outdoor enthusiasts, and brands. Born out of frustration with the way hunting is often misrepresented in media, our objective is to shed light on a more honest side of the story. Told from the perspective of hunting purists and the diplomatically-minded, we present balanced narratives from diverse perspectives that are unaltered by the skews of emotion based tactics, intending to bring about constructive conversations on otherwise controversial topics.
