Barnard Native Establishes New Venture:
Mr. John's Green Mountain Guide Company

John Barnes

Mr John.

BARNARD, VT -- John Barnes has spent nearly his whole life in the greater Woodstock, VT region. Since age 7 he lived in Barnard with his surrogate father, now deceased, whom he still refers to as "Mr. Cobb."

For 40 of John's years he was a trapper, accompanying Mr. Cobb on woods-oriented missions that produced, in a good season, 25 fox, 20 mink, 50 beaver, up to 300 muskrat and other fur bearers like otter, fisher, bobcat and raccoon.

"When you're in the woods to make living, your survival depends on understanding animal habitats. You learn to ask the questions: What is the animal doing in the woods and even what is the animal thinking?"

In exploring the habitats of, among others, moose, deer, bear and beaver, he concentrates on an area he knows like the back of his hand, the 55,000-acre Chateauguay that spans several townships near Woodstock and is Vermont's second largest wilderness region in one lump parcel.
