About Us

Dave Hettinger has been a licensed outfitter since 1976. First in Montana, then on to Idaho in 1987 and presently in NW Wyoming where Dave will remain until he hangs up his binoculars, bugle and spurs. To Dave’s way of thinking this will mean life here on earth is over. Professionalism and pride in our business is the key to the success we have enjoyed since 1976. Our business is family owned and operated with Daronda being Dave’s partner in business and in life.

Through the years our strategy has been to handle a very limited number of clients per trip assuring personalized service and attention to detail.

We have been blessed and have had the good fortune of having many quality, true professional people in our crew. These people are not standing in line for a job, you have to aggressively search for them. So I thank them for their total commitment and in giving 100% while doing their job for our outfit.

Guests safety, comfort and enjoyment is of the utmost importance to us and our staff. It is Dave Hettinger Outfitting’s (DHO) privilege to offer people the chance to experience life in a true wilderness setting and to continue an American tradition of horse travel and hunting in the Rocky Mountain West.


Happy Trails From,

Dave & Daronda
