About B.R.O.


Owner of Blue Ridge Outfitters, Casey Woody, was born and raised in Bakersville, NC, a small town that sits at an elevation around 3000 feet in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. Upon graduating from North Carolina State University in 2005 with a bachelors degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences, Casey became a professional hunting guide. He has worked for various hunting outfits in Wyoming, Colorado, Iowa, Missouri, South Dakota, including Seven J Outfitters, J&S Trophy

Hunts, and Double H Outfitters. His professional experience includes guiding hunts for whitetail deer, elk,

mule deer, antelope, and turkey. Over the past 15 years he has also video

produced/hunted with various television shows including Primos-Truth About Hunting, Hank Parker’s Flesh and Blood,  Dropzone TV, and others. He also co-owned his own television show, Ironman Bowfishing, which was broadcast on the Sportsman Channel.  Casey has 30+ years of experience hunting in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee. His guiding expertise has also enabled him to hunt and stay in lodges throughout the world (Spain, Argentina, Canada, and more).

He has taken this knowledge, returned home, and applied it to make Blue Ridge

Outfitters the premier outfitter in Western North Carolina.  B.R.O. is located in extremely rugged, but beautiful terrain and offers a very unique hunting/fishing/outdoor experience. We specialize in introducing people to the outdoors! If you have zero fishing or hunting experience, that is no problem. We offer adventures for all experience levels! If there is a season for it, we pursue it!  Lay down the tablets and phones and get lost in the mountains.  Give us a call today
