The Outdoorsman


About Us

The Outdoorsman is located in the North central area of Washington State in the small town of Winthrop. The store was established by Vic Moss in 1976, but was recently acquired by Chris Rider.

Our goal is to make sure you have all of the things you will need to enjoy everything our area has to offer. As well as the information to be successful doing it.
We have everything from hunting,fishing,camping and backpacking equipment to snow shoeing and motorcycle gear.

The Methow Valley is full of endless outdoor activities.
We have some of the best trout and steelhead fishing in the state. The hunting is outstanding as some of the largest mule deer have been taken from the Winthrop area. Local wildlife viewing can include moose, elk, whitetail, mule deer, cougar, bear, bobcat, grouse and the list goes on. If you spend enough time you may see many of these animals in the same day.

We have a large selection of fishing, archery and hunting gear as well as camping and hiking equipment. We take pride in being a locally owned shop and that is why we carry handcrafted items made by some of the locals. Our custom knife selection is top notch!
