Brad Carter

Brad was raised in Star Valley Wyoming, and took to hunting at a young age, learning the ropes from his father and grandfather, alongside his brother. After pursuing a degree in Geography, Brad decided to learn web and graphic design and started several outdoor related websites. In 2016, he took Altitude Outdoors to a new model, adding a brick & mortar retail shop and ecommerce experience to the existing website. Today Altitude serves hunters and fly fisherman from every state in the US as he leads the team to expand Altitude's offerings and create and innovate products and retail experiences in the gear shop and online. When he's not at work, Brad is probably scouting for Mule Deer, shooting photos, or spending time with his wife and kids.
