Last spring, I had the good fortune to go on a turkey hunt and bag my first wild turkey. Making the day even better; Wayne Hubbard, the host of Urban American Outdoors TV, was one of my hunting partners.
Urban America Outdoors TV is the nation’s only African-American/diverse/urban television program devoted to outdoors recreational sports including, hunting and fishing.
In May, I got to take part in Urban America Outdoors's seventh annual Urban Kids Fishing Derby in Kansas City. Credit: UAO
I was thinking about that hunt, and the urban fishing derby later that weekend, recently as we mark Black History Month.
