It was always a treat to bump into John. You knew you were in for a good discussion on everything outdoors. A gentleman, an old school outdoorsman, and a guy that always worked hard for the hunting community's interest. I'll miss exchanging our stories and of course our friendly debates. Rest in peace John.
A True Friend And Woodsman Has Passed
Posted 04 April 2015 - 11:29 AM
John Webber was a good friend to me and a great friend and valuable resource to the Nova Scotia archery and hunting community. His dedication to various groups and his passion towards youth involvement, whether it was working the kids airgun booth at the Sports Show, working towards getting archery established in different schools or anything where kids could enjoy the great outdoors and different sports was very admirable. He was very knowledgeable, strong willed, stubborn, opinionated and he used all these things to the benefit of everyone, whether you agreed with his stance on a subject or not, he always had the best interest of the hunting community in mind and for that reason I had and always will have, a high amount of respect for him. We have lost one of the good guys, but we were blessed to have him for the time we did. Today, instead of mourning him, let's thank him for all he did. THANK YOU JOHN! You will be missed, but never forgotten.

Whenever I saw him or heard his name the image of him drawing and shooting a bow always came to mind.
He contributed a lot to the NS hunting community and will be missed. Glad to have known him.

Had the pleasue of meeting John once. He took the time to meet the family at the archery club and let us take a look around. Unfortunately his health would not let him walk the course but he waited as we did and then he opened the clubhouse, brought out the bows, and let the kids shoot for a little bit.
Didn't always agree with his opinion online but man it was easy to tell he was a woodsman through and through. Being as I didn't have a mentor growing up John would of been one that I would of been honored to follow.
Don't bite the hand that feeds you
