John is the oldest member of the Drury Outdoors Team. He has enjoyed hunting and the outdoors for more than fifty years. He has been married to his wife, Vicky, for over 40 years. Tanya, his oldest daughter hunts Whitetail Deer with him. His youngest daughter Amy enjoys the outdoors, but does not hunt. John loves his family but says, grandchildren take all this to a new level.
Since retiring John has been with Drury Outdoors taking care of their hunting properties. His love for the outdoors goes hand in hand with his second career. When he isn't working for Mark and Terry, he is hunting with Zach & Andrew, or filming and attending his grandchildren's athletics and school activities.
John first met Mark Drury at a turkey calling contest in the mid eighties. He has been associated with Mark and Terry since that time.
John enjoys all types of game calling. His favorite is friction turkey calling. He has competed in many turkey calling contests in years past. He won the Grand National All Game Calling Championship in 1990. This contest consisted of imitating several species of Game-turkey, elk, predator, owl, duck, goose and deer. He has also won ten turkey calling state championships. He has had several top five finishes in the U.S. Open Friction Calling Contest. His newest challenge is coaching his grandson Zach in turkey calling. John says helping Zach is like having another chance at life.
John's future goals are to keep Ashley and Andrew enjoying the outdoors and introduce Addison as well!!
