How the American Outdoorsman Adventure Club Works

Benefits of the American Outdoorsman Adventure Club

Members of the American Outdoorsman Adventure Club receive access to a database of hundreds of pre-screened outfitters around the world who will provide a discount of 15 percent off guided adventures in the U.S. and 20 percent off international adventures.

How does it work? If you want to take your family on a mountain adventure trip, simply enter your preferences into the Club database. Almost immediately, you'll see a listing of possible adventures -- from the Adirondacks to the Rockies, and from the Appalachians to Alaska. You'll also see how the savings add up significantly to help you to get more out of your travel budget. Discounts are available to everyone in your household, including up to two adults and the children who share your address.

Another exciting benefit to Club membership is access to a secure social network. Once you receive a member ID, you'll be able to create a user name and password, and join a group of people who enjoy sharing their outdoor experiences and imagining their next adventure. You can send messages to other members to ask about their vacation experiences, get recommendations on outfitters, vacation spots or sporting gear, or simply catch up on the latest happenings.

The online forum also gives you a chance to ask the staff questions and join in discussions about hunting, fishing, hiking, mountain climbing and more. You can even see photos from other member's adventure experiences and share your favorite shots from your own trips.
