Greg Johnson, owner of ..., 8 Aug 2008 [cached]
Greg Johnson, owner of Bear Mountain Lodge in Marquette, Michigan had briefed us both on the importance of shot placement and what to do if things turned ugly. A wild boar has a limited range of motion straight up. He also runs a straight line so the key thing to do when charged is to run away and swing behind a tree (the "Swing" technique!) at the last minute. Hopefully this will send the boar past you. If not, you better drop whatever is in your hands and scramble up the tree putting as much room between you and several hundred pounds of angry, popping, bone crushing tusks below. I wiggled in my seat.
Greg then informed us that our guide, Drew Van Buren, would back us up with his shotgun if needed.

Greg Johnson Engineer
Michigan private preserve owner, ..., 29 Dec 2013 [cached]
Michigan private preserve owner, Greg Johnson, is a retired engineer. To please his mom & dad, he went to college and got an engineering degree. He worked for years as a geological and environmental engineer. Yet, it wasn't really satisfying to him.
In the Summer, Greg takes families fishing on Lake Superior
Today, he has found his true calling. He is living his dream as owner of Bear Mountain Quest. Greg travels around the U.S. to hunting shows promoting his trademarked "Raging Russians," wild boar hunting adventure. He is a one man tourism bureau, promoting Agri-tourism, with no help from the State of Michigan. He offers four seasons hunting and fishing adventures. He aims to please the whole family, wives and kids are welcome. He is loved by others in his community for the tourism his private enterprise generates.
Greg has taken land too fragile to be tilled and farmed in a traditional manner and found a suitable agricultural use for it. The vertical bluffs, bedrock and dense forest could not be farmed in any other way. The pigs love the rugged levels and the densely forested terrain.
With his engineering background, he personally designed and built a 4500 square foot hunting lodge with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. He has a professionally engineered containment system which includes 10 foot high game fence, with cleared perimeters inside and out, with the added security of electrical fencing inside. Recently, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources inspected his fence and gave it an A+ for Excellent.
Greg knew he was in trouble, when he exhibited at a show in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Today, Greg breeds his own, and sources from other Michigan farmers. Since the sows are raised in their natural habitat, they are able to select their breeding partners. Their babies are farrowed in the deep recesses of his 100 acre dense cedar forest. The pregnant sows pull down cedar, hemlock and spruce bows to build their nest.
"If you were a pig, knowing that in the end you were going to be harvested, this is where you would want to spend your life," says Greg.
One of the few that remains is Greg Johnson's Bear Mountain Quest.
Greg Johnson has filed a lawsuit against the DNR to try and preserve his swine sanctuary, and the rights of his creatures to live in the paradise he has created.
