Hi, my name is Cole McCall

I want to tell you about the field day when I got my hunter education card. 

When we got there the Quail people fed us all hamburgers and hot dogs!

We then went to a fence and learned how to cross it safely. 

We then went to shoot bows where my brother won the shooting competition, two years in a row. 

We then went and shot shotguns at clay pigeons.  I did good. 

They gave out prizes at the end of the day and I won a 22 long rifle!

With COVID-19, many people are trying things that they have not done or have not done in a while. A hobby I have started again is fishing. I used to fish with my grandpa at my grandparents’ cabin at Council Grove lake. We would sit in the boat house and fish rain or shine. The biggest fish we ever caught was a 14 pound catfish. Since we did not have a scale to weigh the fish, we went to find one from one of the neighbors. Once we found one, a parade of neighbors and a Basset Hound followed us back to our cabin to weigh the fish. I think of my grandpa when I fish today. I find myself asking him in my head to give me a good one and sometimes I think he throws me a big one to catch. I now enjoy fishing very much and look forward to fishing every time I go to our cabin at Council Grove.
