Growing up out West, Jon was destined to have big game hunting running through his veins! Jon started riding around in the hills with his dad at age 4, and took his first deer at age 9. The rest is history… Jon has hunted all over the Western United States, and Canada. Taking his first bull elk at age 12, and his first with a bow at age 16, Jon lives to hunt elk. Aside from chasing bugling elk around the hills in September, one of his favorite hunts each year is the late whitetail rut hunt in his home state of Washington. He spends countless hours preparing for, and chasing whitetail in the mountainous country that consumes most of the state. While he has an unfathomable passion for archery hunting, he still enjoys hunting with whatever weapon necessary to get the job done. Spending time in the outdoors is what matters most to him. When Jon isn’t hunting or pounding out workout routines in the gym, he owns and operates Apex Advertising. A marketing and design firm located just south of Seattle, WA. Jon is also a GORE Hunting Tech.
