The love of hunting was instilled in John Austin before his feet ever hit the ground. As a small child, John’s Uncle would take him hunting. Any spring gobbler season you can still find the pair sitting in the woods calling in the ole gobblers. If John is not hunting, he is setting and checking trail cameras, shed hunting, or fine tuning his archery skills. John has taken whitetails with everything from a 12 gauge double barrel shotgun, to a muzzle loader to a compound bow. His love for archery has matured to the point that since 2005 he only hunts with his compound bow.
