Washington Outfitters & Guides Association is a non-profit association established in 1978 to serve the interests of outfitters in Washington state. A membership brochure is available, which offers the recreational public a guide to unique, fun, and safe adventures provided by our members. Through our brochure, website, newsletter, fund-raising events, and political activity, we have greatly increased awareness of the outfitting industry in our state.
We meet three times a year for board and business meetings with guest speakers discussing subjects of interest including game management, permits, insurance, and other pertinent subjects. WOGA's annual fund-raiser events include the Ride to Rendezvous, Packer’s Rendezvous and Wild Game Dinner. WOGA has a booth at several major sportsmen shows each year.
WOGA is an affiliate member of America Outdoors, Washington State Horse Council, and further more, has formed a coalition with the Washington Cattlemen's Association and the Backcountry Horsemen.
