George Konetes is a professor, pastor, digital media professional, husband and father. He is also an avid lover of the outdoors.

George started his hunting journey at about 30 years old. Since childhood he had a desire to hunt but didn’t have any opportunities to hunt or any family members that hunted. Eventually he decided he was going to give it a try and started down the path.  What he didn’t realize was how big of a challenge learning to hunt was going to be. He was starting at ground zero with no network, precious few friends that had ever walked into the woods, and not even an idea of where to look for information.

Sitting in the office one day he just felt compelled to find a reason to spend time outside and be in the woods. He was also motivated by his baby boy, wanting to build a hobby that they could later share.

After years of relentless research, first hand experience, reading book after book and article after article, talking with experts and attending seminars, and spending many days in the woods pursuing almost every type of game native to his state, he developed a practical well rounded hunting knowledge.  Perhaps even more important than hunting knowledge, he developed a strong appreciation for the outdoors and a desire for more people to share his passion of fresh air and captivating landscapes.

The New Hunters Guide is simply the podcast George wishes he would have had when learning how to hunt; a single place to get practical hands on knowledge about different kinds of hunting, affordable gear, and tips that can exponentially improve your comfort and fun factor in the woods.
