Dean Johnson, founder of JaegerWorks, has over 30 years of hunting experience with a 98% success rate on deer and antelope. Dean’s love of the outdoors started at an early age as a result of fishing and camping trips as a child in Washington State. In college, he pursued a degree in Wildlife Biology. He has logged thousands of hours afield, working as a research technician for various state and federal wildlife agencies in Washington, Idaho, Alaska and Montana. Research duties have included: wildlife habitat surveys, trapping and tagging of mule deer, bighorn sheep, black bears and grizzly bears, radio tracking; and raptor rehabilitation work.
Dean has successfully hunted in Alaska, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Germany. Be it mallards, mushrooms or mule deer, he enjoys harvesting and processing his own food and taking it from the field to its final destination at the table. Dean has over 20 years of emergency care experience as a firefighter/EMT and is currently a fire captain with the Missoula Fire Department.
