He passed away two years ago due to skin cancer. Duck hunting has helped me with my father’s passing because it lets me take my mind off things and I am able to lose all track of time, just sitting and listening to the many stories. I keep my Dad in my thoughts while ducking hunting and always look up thank him when I have a good shoot. When things began going downhill with my father, my uncle became a source of strength. I knew I could lean on him and that he would always have my back.
I think I would do a lot better at shooting and know more places to hunt and experience lots of good hunts that I do. Some things i'm glad that I started and stayed doing, is i'm glad I started duck hunting. It is probably one of the best things I have got to do in a long time. I don’t think there is any better place than out on the water watching them circle right on in and then me and my buddies shoot them. It is one of the best things that I have ever got interested in.
However, Hoke wanted to transfer this concept of sacred space to touch multiple lives. An opportunity arose when Hoke needed a way to stay in contact with the men that no longer received his full attention. In “Fly Fishing with the Damned” Hoke begins fly-fishing with ex-gang members. To his surprise, the excursions along the Skagit River become so popular that whole families began to follow their pilgrimage into the wild. He even takes two men, Juan and Teddy to a fly-fishing class – transplanting their gang loyalties to a passion for nature: a new sacred space.
My dad stops after each ditch and plans out how he is going to get around the next one without his car slipping into it. As he goes down this road we are bumping up and down constantly, especially when he hits a small ditch. That road ends right at our favorite fishing spot. It is called “The Backwaters of Crooked Creek” or at least that is all I know it as. When we get off that road my dad parks his car next to the woods and we both get out.
The only things you can hear are the sounds of nature and animals. I had about a one hundred yard walk to my duck blind through the thick iced over water. With every step I took, the ice made a loud crushing sound. It was way below freezing and the water that slashed up under the ice chilled my hands. Once I got to the duck blind, I decided to take a seat and try to warm up.

We got to the car and left to rocky mountain at our fishing spot and I was just being like most annoying kid would say, "Where are we? ", "Are we lost? ", and "Are we there yet?" That was the longest long ride for my parents, brother, and my brother's friend. We arrived and the first thing I remember doing was getting a rock and throwing it in the river.

A man greeted us with three missing fingers and hands stained lead grey. He instructed our group in the lesson. I was too young to take part in the experience, so I just watched the “older” people in my family attempt to make glass that would e nothing compared to the amazing artists whom we saw before. By the time we had finished and taken a water taxi home, it was night time. From our long walking day and glass experience, we were all starving.
I am reading “The Bass, The River, and Sheila Mant” by W. D. Wetherell, and I am on page 3. So far this book is about a boy who falls in love a girl who lives next door. He takes the girl out on a boat ride to a concert but realizes that he forgot to take his fishing line off of the boat until a very large bass comes along and pulls on his line. He tries to hide the fish on the line, because he knows that Sheila does not like to fish so he’s trying to hide the evidence. In this journal I will be questioning and connecting.
