The History Behind Northwest Hunter

Northwest Hunter began with the taping of four pilot episodes in 1991. Those first few episodes were first broadcast in the Portland, Oregon market. They were such a success that production began immediately and 21 years and nearly 400 episodes later, Northwest Hunter has taken its place as a national leader in outdoor programming. Northwest Hunter is one of the longest running series in the history of outdoor television.

Our solid staff of in-house professionals and one of the best studio editing departments in the industry is a must in high quality production companies. Northwest Hunter's episode format includes the widest variety of wildlife adventures found on American television today.

After 11 "Telly" awards and The Golden Moose Award for The Best Big Game show, Northwest Hunter has set the standard for outdoor programming.
