John Beck with dead animals

John Beck’s really good at interviews. He’s also good at designing websites involving athletes who hunt:

And then there was a link to this site, called Pro Athlete Outdoors, which includes lots of photos of athletes with dead things they’ve killed. I’m not sure about Beck’s involvement, but he certainly is pictured with various dead things that he’s presumably killed. I mean, if I’m going to do a retrospective of John Beck mullet images, I can hardly ignore this, right?

“I love to hunt everything,” Beck said. “Deer, turkey, pheasant, coyote, quail, you name it.”

When he played at Brigham Young University, Beck said hunting and fishing contributed to his success on the football field.

“I felt I played better when I took one morning a week where I fished or hunted,” said Beck, who’d either go fly-fishing for trout or hunt coyotes. “I was always thinking about football so much, I needed to take my mind off it a little bit.”

Beck personally owns three rifles, a .22 caliber semi-automatic, a .223 and a 12-gauge shotgun. Through his father, he’s got access to two more .22 rifles, another .223, a pair of .243s, a .300 magnum rifle, a pair of 12-gauge shotguns and a .22 pistol....Inspired by a video by family friend Marty McCoy of an African safari as well as cable TV outdoor features he’d seen, Beck has produced digital “hunting shows” starring his teammates. They are complete with how-to-do-it interviews, breaking down the bunny hunts, hunter profiles, hunter portrait shots, action scenes, fade-ins and overlay graphics.

But anyhow, I do love some photos of future Hall of Fame quarterbacks with dead animals.
