Dave Barnett

Research Manager

As a Research Manager, Dave understands that gaining knowledge prior to a hunt makes the difference between a full freezer and an unpunched tag. This is what drives him to always search for the next piece of data or report that may add another piece to the puzzle, and fully embrace the hours it can take to gather it all.

Introduced to archery at a very young age, Dave’s passion for the sport is tremendous, leading him to spend over a decade as an archery technician and shop manager while honing his research and writing talents. Authoring countless articles, profiles and more led Dave to a career at goHUNT where he continues to share that passion with other hunters.

Raised by a father who loves hunting, it is no surprise that Dave developed a love for the outdoors that he continues to foster with his wife and daughter.
