DownWind Outdoors - Website and Mobile Development
“Red North not only brought fresh exciting ideas to the table, but offered welcomed constructive criticism to improve upon my own business ventures. Second to none website growth with an exhilarating twist!” — Jerrod Vila, DownWind Outdoors
DownWind Outdoors is a group of hunters from the northeast US that started out making hunting videos for personal entertainment. Now, with the help of YouTube, they have become one of the highest viewed predator hunting groups on the internet. With the increase in popularity of the sport and their soaring video views, they came to Red North to take their group to the next level.
In order to increase their popularity they needed to reach a wider audience and get their work ranked with Google, Bing, and Yahoo. What better way to achieve this than by investing in a professional website. Through the development of a site that contains videos, pictures, write-ups, merchandise store, and a mobile site DownWind Outdoors gained fans not just from the northeast but now from all over the world.
Red North designed a website that matched the groups modern style. Through a maintenance plan, Red North has created over 250+ individual pages throughout the site. The group also choose to have Red North develop a mobile site that currently accounts for almost one third of all site traffic, making for a streamlined package that satisfies the groups online needs.

South Fork Outfitting - Website and Mobile Development
“We had been struggling for years with our website development and management. When our company made the switch immediately we could see the difference. Red North’s efficiency, creativity, and professionalism have provided a breath of fresh air into our business!” — Tad Peter, South Fork Outfitting
South Fork Outfitting is one of the premier deer hunting outfitters in Illinois and they pride themselves on providing the very best opportunities on harvesting a trophy whitetail deer of a lifetime. However, back in 2012 they came to Red North because the one thing they didn’t have pride in was their outdated website. Between the sites archaic design and lack of a maintenance plan to keep up with the businesses ever evolving media and text, Tad Peter at South Fork Outfitting needed a change.
Red North worked with Tad and listened to his Company’s unique needs and problems to come up with a platform that would not only give them an updated professional "wow" factor but a way to streamline their hunter registration methods and improve their social media footprint. Now with Red North’s website design, mobile design, and maintenance plan, they are booking more hunters from different areas of the country and even have some new international clients.
Just like South Fork Outfitting, we can help you bring your website and your company into the 21st century.

Grouse Ridge Kennels is one of the premier English Setter breeders in the country and has been raising national champion dogs since before the 1950’s. The Grouse Ridge property is also known for its picturesque landscape that fosters some of the best land for field trials to test these champions. With the rise in bookings to use the land the owners realized they needed a way to show their clients around their property and came to Red North for a solution.
The Grouse Ridge property consists of around 2,000 acres and over 10 miles of trails. The new field trial clients had difficulty trying to navigate the land. With Red North’s ability to provide GPS services to map the trails, land features, water bodies, buildings, and other important landmarks we were able to create a easy to read map that could bring comfort to the owners and dogs alike. With the help of aerial imagery, land cover, and elevation contours the once unknown landscape became an easy to read property map.

Title / Founder + Owner
Eric applies a critical view to website design as he believes design must support functionality, and vice versa.

Eric currently lives on Long Island, NY with his wife, Kristen. Although the Island is not the wilderness he was raised in, it keeps him close to his true home; upstate NY. He grew up in the outdoors hiking the great Adirondack mountains and hunting and fishing the various game species of New York State. He now spends his weekends, and sometimes weeks, traveling our beautiful country enjoying all the outdoor activities it has to offer.
