He has never hunted over bait or a food plot.
Due to what he feels is the total misrepresentation by most of the hunting media pertaining to their misleading “100% Wild” and “100% Free Ranging” hunting statement claims, along with his son Chris they wrote the books “Bowhunting Pressured Whitetails”, “Precision Bowhunting”, and “Bowhunting Whitetails the Eberhart Way”.
Wrote the manuscript, produced, hosted and narrated the 3 volume, 100% instructional bowhunting DVD series titled “Bowhunting Presssured Whitetails” which is a visual of the books and leaves no stone unturned in covering every aspect of bowhunting whitetail deer.
With the aid of 2 certified professional archery instructors Bryan Scupbach and Russ Strong, he narrated and produced an instructional DVD titled “Archery Mechanics” which includes everything from A to Z on; choosing a bow and accessories, proper shooting form, properly shooting from elevations, bow energy ratios, deciphering correct draw lengths, and much, much more.

As a final note John wanted us to make it perfectly clear that unlike many TV and video personalities that will endorse anything a company will pay them to endorse, he would never endorse any product he doesn’t use or believe in.
