Greg has spent his entire adult life in the mountain West, as a career
Forest Service biologist, District Ranger and natural resource consultant. He has been roaming the hills, streams and lakes of Montana continuously since 1976, with passions split between bowhunting, bird hunting and flyfishing. He lives in Missoula with his wife of 35 years, Sherry, and their German Shorthair Pointer Lucy, and their 3 llamas.
After witnessing too many favorite areas becoming deteriorated by growing off road motorized use in inappropriate areas, Greg became involved in BHA several years ago. He believes strong protection and restoration of backcountry is essential to the future of both quality hunting and fishing in Montana. He believes BHA can be most effective by focusing on both reducing threats as well as working on permanent protections of remaining wild country in Montana.
John has been working in the outdoor/hunting/fishing "industry" since he was 16, starting as an assistant (more like a pack mule dropping off equipment at various locations) for a fly fishing outfitter in the Swan Valley. While attending The University of Montana for degrees in Resource Conservation and Economics he worked at a local hunting shop and was a river guide leading multi-day wilderness trips out of West Glacier in the summers. After graduating he moved to Southeast Alaska to help develop new fly fishing channels of business for various salmon fishing lodges.
He began to miss Montana too much so he moved back in Missoula and is active in Montana's hunting and fishing communities. John has first hand experience watching smart policy protect and improve habitat, wildlife populations and opportunities for hunting and fishing. He is passionate about protecting backcountry, restoring degraded habitat and working with the state and private landowners to improve access.
After traveling the US as electronic design consultants for several years Chad and wife Kyle moved to Northwest Montana in 1984. He hunted, fished and hiked the dark timber throughout the area. While bowhunting was the driving force in his life; he also enjoys bird hunting, fishing and hiking with Kyle and labs Amber and Pearl.
Many areas he enjoyed in the past are now suffering from human abuse, both commercial and recreational. He longs to see our remaining backcountry areas protected for future generations to enjoy whether it is for hunting, fishing, camping or simply viewing wildlife and scenery. He believes Backcountry Hunters & Anglers can help secure that much needed protection.
Backcountry Hunters & Anglers seeks to ensure North America's outdoor heritage of hunting and fishing in a natural setting, through education and work on behalf of wild public lands and waters.
