About Us


Who are we?

Clevershooting.com is a team of hunting equipment and mountain hunting pro specialists. We take pride in our passion as proven hunters and outdoor specialists and review, recommend, and test gear made for one of the most challenging hunting environments that exists in the world.

We are building Clever Shooter from a deep respect for the mountains and the animals that call them home. We take that passion into each decision we make and every product review we provide.

Our biggest goal and challenge is to get you heads-up on the best possible gear that will keep you comfortable, and safe and give you the best possible chance to be successful on your next hunt.

What do we provide?

Clever Shooter is owned and operated by people who have been there and own the t-shirt. We’ve been through (and still go through!) the sore legs, extreme heat, cold, week-long rain, and snowstorms. We’ve walked hundreds of thousands of vertical feet, had sleepless nights, and of course, felt the extreme elation when a hunt goes right.

The bottom line is we have lived through and respect all the challenges, and brutal fun of hunting in the mountains and it is from this place we provide and suggest gear that will work for you.

Our reviews and advice are based on fieldwork, feedback, and hands-on experience. From handling and looking after a weapon, to handling a carcass and a trophy.

We will advise you according to budget and intent, from choosing the right weapon to the right scope, to the correct pair of boots, torches, and tents for the process.

John Hughes Founder of Clever Shooter

John Hughes

Welcome! My name is John Hughes, and I have a serious obsession with the outdoors, and with hunting for food. I’m the one who put together this website, and I really hope that you find some valuable information here.

I served as an Abrams crewman in the U.S. Army before becoming an officer. I served in Korea in 2002, later in Iraq, and finally, I completed a single tour in Afghanistan as a logistics officer before hanging up my boots.

My team and I will do all in our power to assist you in locating the apparel and equipment that is ideal for you and all of your activities in the great outdoors. Feel free to share your ideas and experiences with others in the comments part of our website, and don’t be afraid to get in touch with us if you have any questions or suggestions. Have Fun in the Fresh Air!
