Jessi Johnson

Jessi Johnson grew up the only child of a rural ranching family that managed several properties across the Rocky Mountain West. This upbringing fostered compassion and respect for landscapes and animals and a deep love of adventure in the out of doors.

Jessi moved back to Wyoming 9 years ago and intimately learned Wyoming’s vast public lands through a love of backcountry archery hunting. Archery hunting for Jessi creates a bridge between human and animal, and human and landscape. She feels it makes you go above and beyond just casual observance; learning habitats, behavior, and even sometimes a personality. It brings you in close and makes sure you are aware of the life you are taking. For her, hunting completes the circle, bringing into full focus what it means to be a predator, a participant in the cycle, and an expert on the land.

Jessi is the Public Lands Coordinator for the Wyoming Wildlife Federation, a founding member of a women’s conservation group, and a board member of the Wyoming Chapter Backcountry Hunters and Anglers and 2% For Conservation. Her work is fostered by her passion to protect the incredible landscapes she was lucky enough to grow up on and the animals that make the west such an iconic place to live.

Favorite Hunt

Every day out hunting is my new favorite memory but if I truly was forced to choose it would be an evening where I opted not to take a shot on a 5x5 bull elk and later witnessed an incredible dominance fight 30 yards from me between two huge bulls. I walked away from that season empty-handed as far as meat but feeling like the luckiest human alive.

Best Eating Critter

My favorite game meat is the animal that I’ve not yet eaten, with the caveat that it must taste like adventure. Also… Antelope, it tastes of big sky and vast prairies.

Mark Healey

Whether its hitching a ride on the fin of a great white, riding a 50 foot wave or arrowing axis deer, Mark Healey is one of the most accomplished outdoorsman around. As a winning professional surfer, free diver, spear fisherman and part time stuntman, Mark’s status as a all around badass was recently affirmed with a spot on the cover of Outside Magazine and a feature article entitled “the greatest athlete you’ve never heard of.” He has appeared in a plethora of surf movies and documentaries and has also been widely recognized for his shark conservation work (darting tigers, hammerheads and great whites at close range). In addition to his vast aquatic resume, Mark is an avid bowhunter, plying the islands of his home state for a variety of feral and introduced game.

"For me Bowhunting has opened up a whole new part of Hawaii that I never knew growing up in the ocean. I’m not the kind of person that hikes just for the sake of hiking, the same way that I don’t just go to the beach to hang out. I need a goal or a mission or else I get bored in about ten minutes. When hunting came into the picture it was about the same time that I was really becoming aware of how detached we as a society are with our food sources. I always got my own fish, but red meat was something that always came from the store. Once I saw what real wild meat looked and tasted like, it made me wonder why it was so different. In the process of finding the answers to those questions, I quickly learned just how fucked up the food system is in America. Since then I’ve tried to source as much of my own red meat as possible. So being able to selectively harvest healthy meat is a game changer. Aside from that, I’ve gotten to see so many places in the mountains of Hawaii that I never knew existed. Spot and stalk bow hunting just requires so much awareness of the moment and my surroundings that the hours just fly by. Hunting has opened my eyes to so much more that I’m now able to really appreciate."

Favorite Hunt

I like hunting Lanai Island in Hawaii. There are both Axis Deer and Mouflon Sheep on the island. Depending on what parcels you hunt, it can be really difficult or moderately difficult, but you will see animals. It’s a small island with a tight knit community that relies heavily on hunting for food. It’s just really cool to be at a place like that. I always learn a lot.

Eduardo Garcia

Eduardo Garcia was raised in Emigrant, Montana. After graduating from high school, he attended culinary college in Seattle, Washington before becoming a world-travelling, professional chef on luxury yachts. Upon returning to Montana, he co-founded the food brand, Montana Mex. Shortly afterwards, Garcia was shocked with 2400 volts when he inadvertently touched a hidden power line on an elk hunt. His miraculous recovery formed the basis for the documentary film, Charged.

Today, Garcia tours the country as an athlete, chef and motivational speaker. Though he lost his left arm to his accident, he continues to shoot his bow and has found a new role as an advocate for the Challenged Athletes Foundation. He continues to run Montana Mex and enjoys hunting, foraging and gardening at his home outside Bozeman.

Favorite Hunt

Elk in southwest Montana during Novembers rifle season. Don’t get me wrong who doesn’t love the rut in the fall? Of course that is epic and no doubt that’s where I will be as often as possible. However to respect the question is to answer honestly. It’s usually on those biting negative -14F hunts, you know that hunt when you have to heat up your Havalon in order to thaw the blood frozen solid on that dulled blade in order to swap it out that I chuckle to myself. And in that maniacal chuckle and ensuing grin I find stoke and insane gratification.

Brian Mclrea

From age 4 Brian was stumbling along behind his dad and his black lab, Butch, packing pheasants and quail in the Yakima Valley of Washington. At age 10 he was able to pass his hunters' safety classes and immediately started bird hunting throughout the Pacific North West. Brian vividly remembers waiting patiently at the picture window of his home in Oregon as his dad would return from his archery deer and elk adventures throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s. He's always been drawn to the adventure that hunting has given him through the years and is now a cornerstone of the Hushin team. As you can see in his media and writing, Brian is passionate about the chase, regardless of the success of the hunt or size of the trophy.

Eastern Oregon in the Blues Mountain Range. It is a special place full of nostalgia, family traditions and a variety of game species. As a youngster, I followed my dad around learning about the outdoors, shooting my Daisy BB gun and developing an unknown passion for wild places. From blue grouse to mule deer and black bears to elk, all of my first animals were taken alongside my dad on this mountain. Without question, my favorite place to hunt.

Eric Chesser

After moving from California to Utah at age 9, Eric developed a love of hunting. His first video camera was a Christmas gift and from then on Eric filmed everything he did outdoors. He is obsessed with shed hunting and is a registered hunting guide in the state of Utah. The highlight of his career was an archery elk hunt in which he got a second chance at and ultimately killed a huge wapiti the crew called the “firebull." The adversity of that hunt is a constant reminder to Eric to never give up.

My dad grew up outside of Fillmore, UT and the mountains and ridges have a long family history. At one time this unit was a mule deer paradise yet over time it has turned into one of the most elite limited entry elk units in the state. Although the tags are tough to draw, it is refreshing to be able to walk these mountains glassing the same peaks and valleys that my dad did as a young man. I need to spend more time down there now that I think about it. This place has a lot of meaning for my family.

Taylor Chamberlin

Taylor has had a love for the outdoors from an early age. Growing up, he spent all his free time with his family and friends exploring the woods. Soon after his 10th birthday, his grandfather introduced him to archery, and a love for bowhunting was born. After years of random success in the whitetail woods, Taylor decided he was tired of leaving hunts up to chance, and he wanted to figure out how he could hunt more intelligently and efficiently. He has spent every free second ever since studying anything he could find related to what makes a deer move, and how they use terrain along with the wind and thermals as a defense mechanism. Taylor turned that knowledge and years of experience into a career, by starting his own whitetail consulting business and helping people harvest the biggest deer of their life. Taylor lives in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., where he does his best to help control the booming whitetail herd with his bow on small suburban tracts of land. He can use the liberal hunting season to his advantage, and hunts on average 150 or more days a year.

Favorite Hunt

Patterning a big, mature whitetail and determining where and how he beds and how he uses the terrain around him on different winds. Then figuring out where he’s most vulnerable, and sneaking into that spot and getting a shot at him is what I live for. Having said that, I went out west for the first time this past season, and I am already planning my return trip.

Beau Baty

Beau Baty grew up in a wild place with many freedoms few Americans get to enjoy today. It was horses, cattle, farming the ground and hunting anything in season that filled his childhood with great memories and life lessons. His family roots tie him back to the Northern Utah valley dating back to 1817 when the first Baty homestead was built. Trapping, fishing and hunting are what his family lived on for many decades. If it wasn’t for the local game, consistent stewardship, and appreciation for its bounty, the Baty family would have never been able to homestead or make it through World War I & II.

Beau was taught how to care for the land, hunt, fish and trap by his father, grandfather and great grandfather. It is a special and rare opportunity to have learned at the hands of these great men whose knowledge, care and appreciation for all things living gave Beau a rich heritage to follow, uphold and now to pass on to his family and the generations to follow him.

After high school, Beau chose went off to live in Argentina for two years. When he returned, he started college and began trying to scratch out a living for himself.After packing out a few elk on his back and not making it back in time to start his freshman year of college, he decided that he needed some backcountry help. Horses were a no go because of cost and logistics so he tried goats, burros, and ultimately llamas. Long story short, llamas were the right fit for him. A decade later, he and his wife operate their pack llama business offering llama rentals to hunters and anglers and llama assisted backpacking trips in WY, UT, ID, MT and CO. Without public land, Beau would be a fish out of water. Beau and his wife work constantly to be good stewards of the land and waters of our country and are engaged in many efforts to keep public lands in public hands.

Favorite Hunt
I would usually say the most recent or current hunt is my favorite hunt, and prepping for the next hunt is also a good time. The first deer hunt I got to participate in and actually be the hunter, “my first hunt,” is one of my fondest memories. After school one day, my dad had all the horses saddled up and we rode almost to the top of the mountain behind our ranch. He sat me down on my Great Grandpa's old glassing spot and said “shoot anything with horns; I'll see you back at the corrals after dark". I had 3 rounds and a savage .243 with a Leupold 4x scope. I was ready. After 30 minutes of waiting, a small deer came bouncing around the mountain side by itself, and as it got closer, I used my scope for binoculars and saw that it had one horn. Boom, my gun goes off before I could gather my thoughts and I had just tagged my first deer. I gutted that beaut and loaded him on the back of my horse and we walked the few miles back to the corrals where I found a proud dad, mom and grandpa.

Ben Dettamanti

Ben Dettamanti was born to two very lucky parents in a small town in southern Utah. He basically raised himself and became the sole wild meat provider for his family by the age of 14. After turning down what would’ve most likely become a pro football career, he made the decision that he’d rather hunt than do most anything else. Soon, hunting instead of facing his responsibilities became a full blown lifestyle. He left his full-time job in 2017 to pick up shed antlers, chase western big game, and win the hearts of the masses with his charisma on social media. Most days you'll find Ben in the hills documenting his adventures for his youtube channel, ShedCrazy, or at home with his young family, trying to raise his boys with a love for all things outdoors. This lifestyle has taken him all over the US, to Mexico and Canada in pursuit of wild places and wild things. He is always planning the next big adventure.
