John Serna has been hunting with family and friends all his life. As a young adult, John took his passion for hunting to new levels but investing time and effort toward the development of his skills.

John shares his passionate hunting lifestyle with others through his Gameface Addiction apparel line and Gameface Addiction TV.
John is a US Armed Forces veteran, a father, a husband, and a working professional. Somehow, he finds time to hunt nearly every month of the year in multiple states. This is the great part of John’s hunting story, how he integrated hunting into his family lifestyle and manages his time and budget to ensure he always has time to hunt. Just “being there” is the most important thing to John. “If you’re there in the middle of it all and you’ve done the work, you have a chance. You can’t ask for more than that. But being there in the experience is worth the trip every time. If the Lord blesses you with an animal, that’s even better.” — John Serna
Field Staff Pat Hendrixson of Indiana
Pat grew up in Missouri. Being an only child on a farm, she considered herself a tomboy. She would spend her spare time playing baseball with the boys at school, riding her horse, or squirrel hunting with her single shot .22 rifle. Later in life she moved to Kentucky for a few years, then became the proud owner of property in the state of Indiana, with lots of acreage that allowed her to continue her hunting and outdoor activities.
Pat is very supportive of all conservation efforts, and has served as President of the local NWTF (National Wildlife Turkey Federation) since 2006. She has harvested many different species including whitetail deer, mule deer, moose, bear, caribou, elk, antelope, and waterfowl. She also holds three NWTF World Slam Titles.
Pat has always believed that proper scent control was very important to avoid detection in the field, and stands firmly behind the quality and effectiveness of Skull Bound Scent Products. “With all these animals using scent control is very important to cover your scent either from the animal detecting you or to keep them from alerting others of your presence. Skull Bound all the way!” –Pat Hendrixson

Later moving to Tennessee, Ally suffered a serious accident that forced her to take a “life break”. Once she fully recovered, Ally moved on with her life, and now is married with two beautiful children.
“My goal is to bring other women and children closer to enjoying the outdoors. Whether it is at shows or aiding them in hunts, just seeing the joy on their face is a wonderful feeling in its own. The peace and tranquility of being outside in the woods is worth it all. Every hunter may miss, but if you don’t make the attempt, you’re missing a lot more!! “ –Allyson “Ally” Cherry Neal
