Restless Native: John Hunter, FLW Angler, Hunter & Entrepreneur


Listen now! 

"My marshal turns around and says, 'Hey Buddy." I turn around, and his face is ghost white. He's bent over in pain and says, 'You see that bank over there? We gotta go. Right now.' " 
— John Hunter

This episode's a funny one. 

We have John Hunter returning. You may recall John if you follow professional fishing. This year he fished the FLW, and he's fished the Bassmaster Elite Series, too. He's also GoWild's Chief Strategy Officer, meaning he heads up all things related to our product strategy when it comes to hunting and fishing. And as if he wasn't busy enough, he started a little company called Graph Glass

We'll catch up on how the season treated John, and quickly dive into questions from users. You'll hear Brad stumble through your very specific fishing questions, admit he uses a godawful fishing reel setup, and then comes some hilarious stories from John. Oh, and Donovan Sears makes an appearance to try and foil GoWild's plans for world domination. Ugh. 

Sit back. Grab some tissues to wipe those happy tears from your eyes. This one's a funny one.

This episode of Restless Native is brought to you by Houston Safari Club Foundation. GoWild is working with Houston Safari Club Foundation, and you know about some of the conservation efforts this group participates in.

This is an amazing organization, that is not only funding conservation efforts, they’re helping kids further their education, learn how to get outdoors and actively tackle R3 efforts.

Houston Safari Club Foundation has put $2.1 million into scholarships for hunters. That is, they are paying for scholarships to kids who are proven outdoors enthusiasts with hunting backgrounds. These are future decision makers and educators. They tackle Hunter Recruitment first hand with outdoor programs that have introduced hundreds of students to hunting experiences and career opportunities.

Houston Safari Club Foundation has also provided $3.5 million in hunter-funded programs for habitat and wildlife improvements, anti-poaching and outdoor education.

Members can connect with individuals from diverse fields, sharing a passion for hunting. Go back and listen to Joe’s interview if you missed it—he talks about all kinds of amazing events they host for these efforts.  

Members also enjoy an active community, with monthly events and of course, the annual convention where members gather to socialize and share experiences.
