John Frank Receives 2009 Mossy Oak Passion Award
WEST POINT, MS – -(AmmoLand.com)- John Frank was awarded the Mossy Oak Passion Award at the Drury Outdoors annual production meeting in St. Louis, Missouri on September 18 and 19.
Each year, Drury TV Producers from all over the country gather for meetings and an annual awards banquet. Last year, Mossy Oak was honored to participate in the banquet and present the Mossy Oak Passion Award to Steve “Coon Dog” Coon. Continuing the tradition this year, Mossy Oak recognized John Frank.
“The Passion Award is given to an individual that exhibits passion for the outdoors, who always works to their fullest capacity and with great excitement, and strives unselfishly to be the best at what they do,” said Ben Maki, Vice President of Marketing for Mossy Oak. “It’s not about taking trophy animals and having a successful hunt every time they step in the field or get behind the camera. It’s about passion for the outdoors, respect for Mother Nature and unwavering energy in everything they do.”
Frank is from Richland, Iowa where he owns his own flooring company. He has two children. Frank’s hobbies include photography, videography and Harley Davidsons. He enjoys hunting caribou, turkey and whitetail.
According to Frank, “Hunting with my grandfather from age 12 provided the beginning of my hunting interests. My love for the sport has branched from well-trained hunting dogs flushing ringnecks to the gobble of a mature tom on a cool spring morning. In the last decade, my hunting sights have evolved further to include the elusive P&Y class whitetail deer. Photographing buck in velvet combined with shed antler hunting helps me to pattern mature bucks. In the future, I’d like to harvest an elk with a bow.
“Recently, my son started hunting and I love to film him learning to hunt and discovering all the outdoors has to offer,” he added.
