The Sportsman’s Guide was born in the brain and basement of outdoorsman Gary Olen, back in the winter of 1970. His very first Sportsman’s Guide Catalog came out in 1977, offering discount-priced gear and clothing to hunters, along with the item that started it all, a trophy jacket patch that allowed deer hunters to brag about their success.
