Get a group together and join us for the early and general season hunts. We’ll put you in the right camp and help you pack out your trophy.
Darwood Outfitting was founded in 1934 by Ole Scott. In 1982, his nephew and employee, Steve Darwood purchased the outfit which became Cascade Wilderness Outfitters. Steve’s family homesteaded in the Methow Valley, just three miles from his home in Carlton, in 1890. In 2020, the family owned and operated business transitioned as Steve handed the reins over to his son and employee of 23 years, Jess Darwood.
Steve and Jess have spent decades working together, packing, guiding, shoeing, training and building custom saddles. Along with his wife and children, Jess is honored to carry on the family business and share his love of the wilderness with generations to come.
