Hartwell Bass Topwater Milk-Run For July

4-H Trap Shooters Blast Away In Putnam County
Shots constantly rang out as hundreds of talented kids demonstrated their incredible abilities in the 4-H Modified Trap competition held May 8-9 in Putnam County. The youth shotgun competition was one of a number of 4-H shooting events that have occurred since February under its Project S.A.F.E. (Shooting Awareness Fun and Education) program.

Wading forward until I was knee deep, I still couldn’t see the bottom, which was shaded by the mirrored reflection of a leaning cypress above the shiny, black water. A little snap-whip of the rod sent the tiny spinnerbait sailing away, landing softly enough I could see...
