Co-Founders Mark Johnson and Shawn Eliason are country boys through and through. Mark grew up on a ranch in the west desert of Utah driving cattle and tractors while Shawn was raised in another rural community in western Utah near his multi-generational family farm. They became friends in high school and began a tradition of spending time in the mountains and desert hunting deer, birds, coyotes, and anything else that happened to be in season. As the years have gone by, that tradition still continues. In 2016, they had the idea to share their experiences trekking through the west desert with the world and Westrek Hunting was born! They wanted to create a hunting apparel line to suit the unique styles and interests of all hunters. Together with the help and support of their wives, they have enjoyed creating new designs and products and will continue to generate fresh new looks to represent the many different aspects of the great western outdoors.
