SO YOU WANT TO BE A BADLANDS PRO STAFF MEMBER...
Being a Badlands Pro isn’t for the faint of heart or weak of mind. We expect our gear to be used and used hard. If it’s going to sit on a shelf in your closet 362 days a year, just move along — nothing to see here. If you’re the hard-hunting, can’t sleep the night before, was-late-for-my-own-wedding-because-I-was-hunting type of person, we might have a place for you.
Our Pro Staff program was created as a thank you to certain groups, such as military members (current or retired), police, fire, EMS and DNR/DWR employees. It was also designed to be a testing ground for licensed guides/outfitters as well as those that are employed in the outdoor industry, such as outdoor retail employees. If you fit into any of these categories, this program might be for you. Read on to see what becoming a Badlands Pro requires of you and if you’re still with us at the end, fill out the form. Happy Hunting.
JOB #1: USE THE GEAR
Your first and foremost duty is to use and abuse your Badlands gear. There's nothing we like more than seeing our gear pushed to the limits of what hunting gear should be able to do. It's not doing you or us any good sitting on a shelf. Get out there!
GIVE FEEDBACK ON GEAR YOU PURCHASE
You are an integral part of our design team and we need continual constructive feedback. By becoming part of this program we consider you part of a team and look forward to hearing from you. Feedback should be provided whenever possible to email@example.com with subject line: “ProStaff Feedback - Your Name”
As hunters and consumers in general, we often rely on the reviews of others to determine which items we’ll purchase. As a part of this program, you will be required to leave a review for each product you purchase through the program. When logged in to your account on www.badlandsgear.com, you can navigate to the product you purchased and leave a review for future visitors. It doesn't take long but your words will be far reaching and beneficial. Your words mean more than ours!
PROVIDE PHOTO AND VIDEO CONTENT
No, we're not yelling at you in all caps, we simply love photos and video and can't get enough. We need you to send in pictures of you putting your Badlands gear to the test as often as possible. Did you go scouting and take cool pics? Send 'em in! Did you kill something and strap it to your Badlands pack? You better send us a pic! You can send all content to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line: ProStaff Content Submission - Your Name
BE A WORTHY BADLANDS REPRESENTATIVE
We ask that all of our pro-staff members do their part to make sure hunting is portrayed in a positive light. We ask you to be involved with conservation organizations, hunt responsibly, and leave no trace so that future generations can be afforded the same hunting opportunities that we all have. We take this seriously and hope you will too.
