Sun Valley Outfitters...A New Adventure Every Day!

Nearly 35 years ago, a local cowboy who was raised hunting and fishing Sun Valley’s world-class wilderness had a great idea. “What if I make a life out of sharing my outdoor passions with Sun Valley’s visitors? Fishing, hunting, hiking and horseback rides for everyone! Campfires under the stars, sunrises on mountain tops and tight lines at the end of their flyrods… Yeehaw!”

So in 1985, with a little organizing and a lot of hard work, Milt Butler founded what has grown to become today’s Sun Valley Outfitters. All these years later, Bryant Dunn continues the tradition as he has done for nearly 20 years.

A culmination of five separate outfitting businesses, Sun Valley Outfitters is Idaho’s largest land-based outfit. The SVO Team has grown from one aspiring outfitter to a staff of 40 of the hardest working fishing, hunting, hiking, horseback and international angling guides and the most guest-service oriented retail team in the Rocky Mountains. We at Sun Valley Outfitters think “Uncle Milt” would be proud!
