Some of Johnnie's relatives moved from Oklahoma to California for the many opportunities and settled in the Sierra foothills east of Sacramento in the early '40's. Much of Johnnie's youth was spent hiking, camping, hunting and fishing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains as well as the country and hills surrounding his home in Fairfield located between San Francisco and Sacramento. As a youth, Johnnie attained the rank of Eagle Scout.
He started working in the timber industry in California in 1968 and southeast Alaska in 1974. He has hunted big game in California, Oregon, Arizona and Alaska. Johnnie has hunted and fished the Southern Southeast Alaska area extensively and established a fur and bear fleshing / expediting service and freshwater guiding business in 1982.
