Forge Creek™ Hunting Products
Partnered with True Timber®
The True Hunter
Forge Creek™ is more than a brand—it's a way of life. We’re a team of hunters that have obsessed over perfecting our craft for years. We know what it’s like to spend hours in a treestand deep in the wilderness waiting for that trophy buck to walk by.
We’ve forged through thick brush and creeks and over miles of hills just to track the perfect Tom. We feel at home deep in the woods. Surrounded by pines or an aspen grove. At home on the hunt.
At Forge Creek™, we don't just understand these moments; we live for them. And have actually lived them. When designing our products, we think of waiting in deafening silence on a frosty morning as the world wakes up around us.
Through the chirps or the rustling of squirrels you hear the footsteps of a monster buck near your tree stand or your blind. In these moments, we know having the right gear can change the outcome of this story. Our brand was born out of a passion for the hunt, tailored for those who share our call to the wild.
We know that hunting is bigger than a hobby or pastime. It’s about the camaraderie. The legacy. The story. Forge Creek™ was built to honor these principles. When we started envisioning what this brand would be, we thought back to nights around the campfire, sharing stories of past adventures. Whether that’s recounting the time that legendary buck just got away or when you and your buddies all bagged a turkey that one special weekend in late fall.
We appreciate hunters and this community. And we know for many out there, hunting is a legacy passed down through generations of family.
Through our brand, we want to give you the gear you need to make these types of memories and carry on the tradition.
FORGED THROUGH INNOVATION. INSPIRED BY THE HUNT.
From the Field to the Forge: Products and Gear Built by Hunters
At Forge Creek™, our products were designed and built by real hunters. That isn't just a line, it's the honest truth.
All of our products and gear were meticulously crafted with real hunting applications in mind. We leaned on our own successes and failures in the field to create gear that hunters actually need.
That means everything in our design process from sketching out early ideas for products to materializing, prototyping and reviewing samples, was conducted by actual hunters taking what they learned in the field and applying it in the forge.
