Welcome to our blog. I have wanted a medium to chat with hunters, fisherpeople, and anyone who enjoys the great outdoors. This is an opportunity for us to continue to have ordinary people like you and me to be a part of this movement to get people in the field, on the bank and on the water. When you blog with us you are not just talking with me, but your are talking with the entire world.

So hit me back and let’s talk about what interest’s you! Here is the summer update.

What do hunters do in the summer?

During this summer period of wonderful sunny warm weather my sons Donnell and Kenny and I have been fishing and shooting. I have also included Drey, our Little Brother from the Big Brothers Big Sister Program, in the fun. He got a chance to shoot pistols and rifles for the first time. He was so excited and had a great time plinking.

As always my cousin Billy Anfield, who I have fished with for more than 50 years, held down the back of the boat. We have taken 3 Trips. First we fished the Columbia River near The Dalles, Oregon for Smallmouth Bass and we hammered some nice ones. Then we went to Willow Creek Reservoir at Heppner, Oregon. We took some Crappies and Billy got in to a school of those sweet little Bullhead Catfish. Kenny went to video for us, but he could hardly stay focused because he kept putting the camera down to catch some of those Crappies and Catfish himself. He is a very good fisherman.

The most recent trip was to Oxbow Reservoir on the Snake River (Oregon/Idaho border). It was a quick trip but I found a school of Crappie, got a couple of nice cats, and as always the Bass never stopped biting the entire 2 days we were there. We did a lot of catch and release. Drey learned from us how to survive the 107 temperature on the first day and he caught some nice fish, more than he did on his first 2 outings with us. He enjoyed seeing the diverse landscapes of Oregon up close and personal for the first time. He was amazed when a flock of about 45 turkeys crossed the road in front of us for the first time. We actually got out and walked to within 30 yards of them to take pictures and video. We also saw mule deer.

Upcoming events include a talk to the Democratic Gun Owners Caucus about AAHA on Wednesday August 5, 2009 at 6:00 PM, at the Democratic Party Office, at 232 NE 9th Avenue in Portland. I would also like to invite those who have never fired a shotgun and would like to try, to come to “Take me out to the Skeet Range”. This will be held at the Portland Gun Club on Saturday August.15th at 11:00 am. You will receive a brief training including safety procedures and shooting lessons from some of the clubs best instructors.

I hope that you are enjoying your summer and preparing for fall outdoor activities too.

We’ll see you in the field!

Glad to see you representing the African American Sportsman. Keep up the good work.

We have a serious problem here in Gary Indiana where there is a lack of structure and family values https://cid-f7e894679d3a173c.office.live.com/view.aspx/Presentation1.pptx?permissionsChanged=1&1

Thank you for your encouragement and sharing your perspective about our inner cities. We have to do more to educate our kids.
