Jess Johnson is the Government Affairs Director for the Wyoming Wildlife Federation, and a founding member of the National Wildlife Federation Sportswomen’s Initiative, Artemis, a women’s coalition that encourages women to take leadership roles in conservation and wildlife-related policy positions.
As a board member for 2% for Conservation and the Wyoming Chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, she brings her dedication to educating hunters on advocacy and policy in the conservation arena, and the dialogue around hunting into the industry as a pro team member of First Lite, Argali, and Kestrel Glassing Systems.
Growing up in a conservation minded ranching family in Montana, Northern California, and Wyoming., she has a deep appreciation for healthy ecologies and since moving back to Wyoming 11 years ago she has worked for the voice of hunting and wildlife at the State Legislature.
She spends most of her free time exploring the West's vast expanse of public lands on foot and on horse. Jess is an avid archery hunter and has a particular love for the big Wyoming mule deer.
