Northwest Sportsmen Getting Afield

Back to work after a long weekend, and as much as I want to crow about my son River catching his first fish ever this past Sunday, other Northwest sportsmen and -women have been afield of late as well.

Here’s a sampling of recent successes:

"ME AND MY DAUGHTER RYLEE LEWALLEN OUT THIS WEEKEND FISHING LIMITED OUT IN ABOUT AN HOUR. HERE ARE A FEW GOOD PICS OF SOME NICE TROUT ON THE UPPER MCKENZIE RIVER AT CARMEN-SMITH RESERVOIR. THANKS, CARL." (WRIGHT & McGILL/EAGLE CLAW PHOTO CONTEST)

"THIS IS A PHOTO OF MY SON, CODY, AND HIS FIRST BLACK BEAR HE SHOT ON PRINCE OF WALES ISLAND ON MAY 22, 2011 DURING A SELF-GUIDED HUNT. HE SPOTTED THIS BEAR FROM 1,500 YARDS AND WE STALKED TO WITHIN 186 YARDS. HE MADE A PERFECT SHOT WITH HIS MARLIN 336 LOADED WITH HORNADY 200 GR FTX BULLETS AND THE BEAR ONLY WENT 15 YARDS. HE WAS SO EXCITED AFTER SHOOTING THE BEAR AND I WAS A VERY HAPPY DAD! ERIC SPIEGEL, SEABECK, WASH. (RUGER PHOTO CONTEST)
