Meet Johnny. He'd really appreciate it if you wouldn't post your land.
Johnny grew up in Hanover and went all the way through the Hanover elementary, middle and high schools. During high school, he took advantage of classes offered at the Hartford Area Vocational and Technical School to learn skills he could put to work. His first job was as a - in his own words - "dirt worker," operating heavy equipment to prep sites for construction. He has worked in auto body repair and as a tractor trailer painter for DeCato Brothers Painting. Johnny has been a plumber for J & B Plumbing for 26 years. His work brings him all over the Upper Valley.
Johnny lives in Enfield. He is an avid hunter and fisherman who would hunt all year round if he could. He is not happy when people move to the Upper Valley and post land that he has hunted on for 40 years. Johnny is 53.
Favorite sport to watch on TV: Car racing or football
Perfect dinner after a long day: perch and venison served with fiddleheads, all self-procured
