About Johnny Mack

Johnny Mack is the founder of Washington Backcountry and the host of The Soulful Hunter Podcast. He is an adult-onset hunter who experienced the transformative power that hunting offers. Knowing firsthand how intimidating and challenging learning how to hunt can be, he created Washington Backcountry and his mission of “Mentorship is Conservation” to support others along their way.

Johnny started pursuing his love for hunting when he was 30 years old.  Although he was always an avid backpacker and fisherman, hunting was something that captivated him.  It wasn’t until 4 years later, that he finally notched his first big game tag.

When he is not in the woods hunting or enjoying the outdoors, you can find him at his day job as a middle school physical education & health teacher. He is married to his beautiful wife Megan and they have three young boys (Carter, Cannon & Case).
