Jon is a conservation minded hunter who culls invasive and overpopulated species that are destructive to the environment and disrupt the balance in the competition for forest resources. Pictured here is Jon with a wild boar shot in Paskenta California. The boar was shot on the run, using a custom built Savage .338 at a distance of 867 meters with a 16.6 foot bullet drop. The boar weighed 280 pounds gutted, and was estimated to weigh 320 pounds in the field.
Nominees should be individuals who practice conservation minded North American game hunting and demonstrate exceptional sportsmanship, and advance the sport through education, leadership, and/or general excellence in their realm.
