About Us



John Andre has been a professional outdoorsman for over 30 years, having owned and operated highly successful hunting camps in the Northwest Territories and Saskatchewan, Canada, and in the state of Montana. He has also helped tens of thousands of sportsmen, through his booking agency, Shoshone Wilderness Adventures, enjoy quality outdoor adventures. He has built and enjoyed campfires on five different continents, heated his home in Wyoming with wood for many years, and has watched hundreds of clients and guides struggle to build a campfire quickly. John and his wife (and partner), Anita Andre, camp almost every weekend of the summer, fishing the myriad waters of the state of Montana, and enjoy the warmth and serenity a campfire brings to all.

Our firestarter has been in development for over 20 years, and will start your fire quickly, easily, and inexpensively. It will make your time spent outdoors by a campfire, or indoors by your fireplace or woodstove, that much more safe, clean, and enjoyable.

What our customers say?

What a pleasure it has been to find and use Montana Firestarter in a number of different situations. It has made starting my home wood stove so much simpler with minimal kindling. Campfires get going in record time even with less than dry fuels. This has got to be a backpacker's dream, a must for anyone heading into the back country on foot, horseback, or river raft.

Our all-natural fire starter is made of wood shavings and 100% natural organic material and is designed to be used indoors or outdoors. Simply sprinkle a small amount of firestarter onto your kindling, touch a match to it, and add your larger firewood. You will have a roaring fire in less than a minute. Once you've used this firestarter, you will never bother with newspapers and mess again. They add no taste or odor to your food and can be used for grills, campfires, wood stoves, and fireplaces both indoors and outdoors!
