Transcript

An American outdoorsman and Vietnam war veteran, John Tice is also a reality TV star, best known for his work on ‘Mountain Monsters.’




Born in 1947, in West Virginia, he is known by the name “Trapper” among his friends and family.

Growing up in the Appalachian mountains, he started hunting and trapping, learning the basics from his father at a young age.

For the first time on June 22, 2013, his endeavor was shown on the Destination America show, Mountain Monsters.

The show focuses on a team of six native West Virginian hunters and trappers.

He is the leader of AIMS (Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings), a troupe that investigates the things in the woods.

With a common goal to prove the existence of enigmatic bodies like Lizard Man, Werewolf and Bigfoot, the team tries to capture these creatures.

Following his encounter with the Stonish Giant, he had to undergo surgery for a blood clot in his leg that put him down for months.
