For the second straight year, Stone Glacier has made Inc Magazine’s prestigious list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country! This is no easy feat, a team effort, and largely attributed to our loyal customers. With a growth rate of over 600%, we are truly proud to represent the hunting and outdoor communities on a list comprised primarily of mainstream companies.
1 Shot Gear in Golden, Colorado has been one of our strongest retail partners for the past three years. At the helm of 1 Shot Gear is owner/operator, Alex Bourkalov, the nicest Russian we’ve ever met. Alex started 1 Shot Gear in his garage in 2009. Like Steve Jobs, he quickly built an empire that outgrew the garage.
Gear planning is an intrinsic element of any hunt and as they say "No two hunts are ever the same." Based on your trip duration alone you can see drastic shifts in gear needs. However, one thing that should be consistent in your backcountry outings is the fit and comfort of your pack frame.
One of the most common questions we get here at Stone Glacier is "What frame should I choose?". While there are many similarities in our frames, there are some significant differences.
I started bear hunting when I was in college, and to be honest, wasn't very good at it. My techniques were as bad as my gear and it took me years to produce any results. Once I realized I should be glassing more than hiking, I began to find bears and fill my tags.
There are many waterproof fabrics on the market, so how do you determine what rain gear will be best suited for your style of hunting? The amount of data and options can seem daunting and downright overwhelming. So, we comprised the below information to help give you insight into exactly what we were trying to achieve with our waterproof textile technology, HydraShield™. And, to help you better understand what type of hunting conditions our all-new M5 Series of technical rain gear is best suited for.
This past winter, at the Wild Sheep Foundation show, we connected with University of Wyoming Professor, Kevin Monteith, about the unique work his team performs studying generations of Mule Deer in the Wyoming Range. Kevin’s program, The Monteith Shop (@monteith.shop), has been working in collaboration with state wildlife agencies to understand the multiple aspects of mule deer ecology to ultimately aid in the development of effectiveness of wildlife conservation policy. We were excited to recently join them for a doe capture to help assist in the gathering of crucial information and data for their ongoing studies.
Every great product starts with an idea. An idea often stemming from experience. For Stone Glacier's founder and lead designer, Kurt Racicot, these ideas were born from 13 years of solo hunting the Chugach, Kenai, and Alaska ranges. After the purchase of his first sewing machine, Kurt started to modify his existing gear, which in turn led to new product developments and eventually the creation of Stone Glacier.
