The Ruggeddom Contest


Ruggeddom is described as just how it sounds.

That's right.

Give us your lumberjacks, your miners and your construction workers. Throw in some game wardens, big game hunters and feral fly fishermen.

As long as they're wearin' flannel and sportin' some sexy scruff, we want 'em.
