“Give us our bows, our guns, man’s best friend, our poles, and some mud.”
Torn Up Outdoors was created by Ryan & LeAnne Barthel, of Melrose, Minnesota, a husband & wife who share not just a likeness to each other, but for the outdoors. “I had always had a love for fishing, and I grew up in a hunting family,” said LeAnne. “But it wasn’t until I started dating Ryan 12 years ago that I realized it was something I wanted to really get into.” 12 years later and the two of them have started Torn Up Outdoors, a hunting and fishing guide service & apparel store they run through social media.
Together with their 3 labs, daughter Ellie, and Pro-Staff, and support from their family, and friends, and their sponsors, Ryan & LeAnne have figured out their true life calling.
We proudly put on one of the largest bowfishing tournaments in Minnesota that is not a part of Worlds, and we aim to continue to this annually.
Between a combination of luck, hard work, blood, sweat, tears, and opportunity, it doesn’t matter what activity they are taking part in as long as it involves each other and something in the great outdoors. “It’s just great to be out in nature, we are able to catch the most amazing sunrises and sunsets and see the leaves changing colors that most people never get to see. Plus doing it with Ryan creates an unbreakable bond between us.”
We’re the real deal, and we are just getting started; but for now, we will keep on hunting and fishing and sharing our memories every step of the way.
