John has been upland bird hunting for 28 seasons in the great state of Montana. He fell in love with the Southwest. Particularly with the town of Patagonia, Arizona. He and Debbie have spent the winters here since 2014. American and French Brittanys are the dogs that he has fallen for and they have an amazing relationship with each other both in the field and at home. John and his dogs have hunted countless species of upland birds in the following states: Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Idaho, Utah and of course Arizona.
A veteran, John served in the US Navy Nuclear Submarine Force.
John is very passionate about bird hunting and especially his late 1800s and early 1900s Scottish and English shotguns. A 1904 Steven Grant side lever 12 bore and an 1881 McNaughton SxS 12 bore are just a couple of his beautiful guns in his collection.
