I have had the greatest success and most fun working with John and Sarah of Total Sportsman over the past five year. Not only are they thoroughly professional as guides and outfitters, you know their number one concern is that you the hunter, enjoy himself/herself and get game. I've been with them for waterfowl, deer, and turkey and have never had a bad day, even if I have missed a shot or two. In my opinion this is how a business dedicated to the outdoors should operate. Thank you John and Sarah!
John’s professionalism is clearly evident in his preparation for the hunt and his attention to detail is far above expectations. Extremely high quality decoys are set up in appropriate numbers for the season and location and blinds are set with season appropriate foliage. Nothing is overlooked.
There is absolutely no question that John’s knowledge of waterfowl hunting is comprehensive and backed by many, many years of experience. John explains each decision made for the hunt and if you ask him any questions, he will give you a clear answer that you can understand and add to your own personal bag of hunting knowledge. You will learn something from John every time you hunt with him.
With John as your guide, you will have the greatest opportunity to get the bag limit. I did the last time! Looking forward to hunting this year with John leading the way!

I have been on a lot of hunts with John his never quit attitude and overall hunting knowledge always seems to pay off for us! He sure knows how to put you on the birds, a lot of his success comes from the hours of scouting and prep work he and his guides put into the hunt. They are constantly changing the spread, and watching how the birds work to get you the best chances of success. Its hard for me to hunt with anyone else. You won’t be disappointed if you book a hunt with him!
Total Sportsman’s Outfitter was nothing more than a dream John Pemberton had since high school. He decided to take the plunge and make it a reality. Today, he is the owner and founder of TSO along with his wife Sarah, and their 2 children. His obsession for waterfowl hunting is what led him to this venture and he has never looked back. Growing up in the beautiful piedmont region of Virginia, there was no shortage of things to do in the outdoors. John began fishing as soon as he could walk, and started hunting deer when he was 11. By 16, waterfowl was his obsession and there was no going back from there. “Time spent in the blind is never wasted time, once in a lifetime hunt or the occasional slow day, its all time well spent,” he says. During waterfowl season John is constantly chasing the limits. From farm pond hunts in Loudoun County to diver ducks on the Potomac, he is out there living his dream. Both his children and wife can be found by his side hunting as well. Throughout his hunting adventures John was lucky enough to meet some amazing people and make life long friends, many of which are now Pro-Guides at TSO. “The business feels so much like a family, its great, there are always people and dogs going every which way. But at the end of the day, we all sit back and have the best stories of birds we’ve harvested and people we have met.I’m just not sure it gets any better than this.”
