John Scoutten has become a staple on Wednesday night TV as host of Shooting USA-TV along with his dad, Jim Scoutten. He has been a host and series producer of shooting sports television for over twenty years, and in that time, John has been honored with a NSSF Great Shots Great Stories award, two Emmy nominations for Shooting USA, countless Outdoor Channel Golden Moose nominations and two Golden Moose Awards for Shooting USA's Impossible Shots.
In the last ten years John has become an accomplished competitive shooter in a number of disciplines including, Steel Challenge, NRA Action Pistol, IPSC / USPSA pistol, ICORE, IDPA and Multi-Gun. John’s passion grew out of a necessity to better understand the sport and therefore report to his audience his experiences. John also reported, "no matter their skill level, they can get out and compete as a way to sharpen skills and have fun. And for me it has grown into an ongoing challenge to improve and at the same time welcome new shooters."
