John McCoyOutdoors Reporter
Born in Charleston and raised in the little Logan County town of Clothier, John McCoy grew up with the abiding love of the outdoors for which lifelong West Virginians are known. He wrote his first hunting- and fishing-related column at the tender young age of 25, and he's been at it ever since. A self-confessed “science junkie,” John holds degrees in broadcast journalism from Marshall University and mining engineering technology from W.Va. Tech. When he isn't writing about the outdoors, he usually can be found tying trout flies or standing knee-deep in a cold stream with a fly rod in his hand.
