Johnny is an avid outdoor enthusiast with over 42 years hunting coast to coast. He grew up in the northeast hunting Whitetails, Pheasants, cottontails, Woodcock, Turkeys, ducks and geese. His passion for bowhunting continued as he moved west through New Mexico, California and now Oregon. He has been blessed with many record-book animals, including an SCI world record Roosevelt Elk (#2 Pope and Young), numerous Whitetail and Blacktail record-class bucks, a number of state record Wild Turkeys, 2 Royal Bulls and a number of northwest head and horn wins. He is now approaching the century mark for Wild Turkeys with a bow. He is also a successful guide for Roosevelt elk, Blacktail deer and wild turkey.
His success in the field has led him to be involved with many TV shows and authoring books and magazine articles. Johnny enjoys helping others, including professional hunters, to be successful in the field and has spent a lot of his time helping young people get involved in bowhunting. He also provides hunts for the disabled, children and wounded soldiers with great results and he counts as a special endeavor having helped his soul mate; Lisa Coates become an incredible bowhunter and hunting partner.
Much of his knowledge has been gained from rubbing elbows with so many ‘Superhunters’ as he puts it. His writings are a reflection of his deep-seeded passion for the sport. Because of his knowledge, experience and devotion to the sport he has been awarded Pro-staff status for HECS, Bear Archery, Trophy Ridge, Gold Tip, Tru-Fire, Badlands, Trophy Taker, Norway Industries, Rocky Boots and ConQuest Scents. Johnny is looking forward to sharing his tales, passion and expertise with the bowhunting.net visitors.
