“I have no problem admitting that John Blake probably forgot as much about hunting as I’ll ever know. Oftentimes, when I was looking for advice about something new I wanted to try, such as coyote hunting, I’d call or email John, who always put me on the right track,” Follett said.
“Like all outdoors people who knew him, I’ll remember John Blake as a very knowledgeable and down-to-earth outdoorsman with an incredible passion for wildlife and the outdoors in general. He was always more than willing to help anybody and was constantly encouraging outdoor involvement, particularly by our youth.
“The outdoors of Newfoundland and Labrador didn’t lose a good one in John Blake, we lost a great one.”
