Today’s hunters are venturing into some pretty tough places and emergencies do happen. Thankfully the technology exists today so no one needs to feel helpless if something unforeseen happens. We built our company for the “what if” so our customers can enjoy their adventures with peace of mind.”
Along with many major hunting and conservation groups, such as Conservation Force, Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever, Texas Wildlife Association, and the National Rifle Association Foundation, Ripcord is recommended by the major African professional hunters’ organizations, including endorsements from APHA, NAPHA, PHASA, TPHA, and ZPHGA. Ripcord is also the trusted evacuation and rescue program for hunters Jim Shockey, Larry Weishuhn and Mark Peterson.
