Our Story

the short of it

DACK Outdoors is the destination for highly-discounted shooting sports & outdoor gear. With tens of thousands of customers and counting, we’re redefining how America shops for The Great Outdoors. We’re headquartered in Missouri with partner fulfillment centers across the USA, and we are 100% family-owned/operated.

Founder’s Story

the long of it

DACK Outdoors was founded in 2018 by avid outdoorsman Carsley Crabtree. After working sales for an automotive dealership for 6 years, he grew impatient with their insistence of higher profit margins instead of lowering prices to attract more customers and left to pave his own path.

Not being much of a car guy, Carsley applied his “smaller margins, more customers” theory to what he was passionate about: The Great Outdoors.

Initially selling to local customers from his house in rural Northwest Missouri, Carsley’s DACK Outdoors quickly gained a reputation for massive savings on the same brands as the big box stores carried.

After forming partnerships with America’s top sporting goods wholesalers, Carsley launched dackoutdoors.com and applied his vision for offering sporting goods at incredibly low prices to the masses.

DACK Outdoors now proudly ships all across the USA with customers in all 50 states.

The son of a Marine, Carsley is incredibly passionate about serving those who’ve served America and was raised with old-school manners and values that have helped shape the level of customer support that DACK Outdoors offers customers.

We’re not a bunch of shareholders looking for a profitable marketplace. We’re blue collar outdoor addicts. We’re guys and gals that love shooting, hunting, fishing, hiking, and anything that involves the great outdoors. We’re you.

We put less focus on profit, and more focus on providing exceptional customer service with unbeatable prices so that more Americans will get out and enjoy the outdoors.

For the Crabtree family, DACK Outdoors is more than just their business – it’s their lifestyle.

Our Values

the backbone of it

We’re a Christian-based company. And we’re unashamed of that. Four simple values have driven our growth, and we have faith they’ll continue to do so:

  1. Glorify God by operating our company within His Biblical doctrine.
  2. Offer unmatched value that encourages people to get outdoors.
  3. Serve our customers as brothers and sisters.
  4. Give back to our communities by sharing God’s blessing on our business.

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.-Colossians 3:17
