Back on the Water with Crosswater Outfitters

My brothers with Crosswater Outfitters are more like family to me than anything. We only get together a few times a year but, by watching us in action at our events, you would think we would have seen each other every weekend.

We just recently had a soldiers event on Lake Belton at BLORA (Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area) on Fort Hood. This was a soldier and family event so we entertained everyone from babies to those still young at heart. You can learn more about Crosswater Outfitters through the website I built for them at Our boat caught about a dozen fish, which is quite low compared to what we are used to on most outings. We did, however, catch some of the biggest fish of the weekend and loved every minute of it. As one family we hosted said best, ” You have all the fun of fishing with none of the drama!” Indeed. It helps that our group of Christian men does not like drama! Here are some pictures from the event.


Legacy Outfitters Annual Archery Tournament

I love fundraising events. For 12 years I was a career school fundraising rep for a large national company for my “day job”. I recently left that career in pursuit of another one but fundraising has always been and will continue to be close to my heart. I work with several non-profit organizations, most of which are in the outdoor industry, and strive to help with fundraising events where I am able. I recently attended an annual archery tournament fundraiser for Legacy  Outfitters ( Although I didn’t place high on the scoreboards, I had a blast shooting the 30 target course and reuniting with friends from my normal Hill Country Bowhunters group I recruited to come. I also visited with many people I had met when I did a presentation on what I do in the outdoor industry for Legacy back in January of this year. It was fun and this is one way I seriously enjoy the outdoors.

My thanks to Gold Tip Arrows and Grim Reaper Broadheads who make my archery target shooting and hunting lifestyle the best it could possibly be. Here  are some photos of the event!



Camp Agape Sporting Clays Shoot

A few weekends back I went with my father-in-law and his two brothers to a new fundraising event sponsored by Camp Agape ( Moyesway Shooting Sports hosted this event and it was held down in Boerne at the scenic Joshua Creek Ranch ( located in the Texas Hill Country. This was a beautiful ranch to say the very least. I was blown away at the scenery as you could see quail and pheasant close by. I didn’t win any awards but my two uncles-in-law did and they deserved them. I shot pretty average but had and awesome time. Here are some photos my father-in-law took of the event.

I don’t write often about Camp Agape but it is one of the organizations near and dear to my heart. It is a breavement camp for kids ages 7-12 and I have been a “buddy” or camper counselor there for the past three summers. The camp runs Thursday-Monday, usually in July, and the experieinces there are heartwarming to say the least. I have a video I created a couple of years ago on my Youtube Channel that explains more about the camp at:

Gobble, Gobble!

I missed my weekly blog post last weekend! I will admit it was my birthday weekend so I took some time off from blogging.

One of my online friends is a hunting guide out of Mexico. Hugo Loera is one of the chief guides for HR Big Game Outfitters . We correspond through email and phone frequently and he sent me some funny turkey hunting photos I had to share. It’s still turkey season here in Texas and I hope to still get out and bag a gobbler if possible before the end of the season. #gobblegobble

Contact me if you are interested in hunting Gould turkey in Mexico with Hugo. Thanks for reading, watching, and listening.
