Hello Friends, I just stopped in to say HELLO and introduce myself. Many of you may know me from my contributions and postings at other hunting and fishing websites. My name is Bud Fields. I live in Galveston, Indiana which is just about 8 miles North of Kokomo. I retired from Kokomo Chrysler Corporation after 35 years involvement in Quality Control. I am now the outdoor columnist for the Kokomo Perspective newspaper where I have a weekly column entitles "OUTDOORS WITH BUD." I am also a member of the Hoosier Outdoor Writers Association and I write for many other hunting and fishing websites and outdoor publications, including Midwest Outdoors and the GADABOUT. I am an avid deer hunter and I have been involved in competitive archery and bowhunting since 1964 and I also hunt with muzzleloader. I also conduct numerous hunting and fishing seminars for area Walmarts, KMarts, Rural King Stores, Dunham's Sporting Goods Stores, tackle centers, churches, schools and youth correction facilities. I am a tournament angler and I compete in 80-90 bass tournaments a year while fishing tournaments every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. (ROUGH LIFE) I look forward to meeting new friends here and sharing information with others. Hopefully I can meet some of you in the woods or on the water someplace... GOOD FISHING.. Bud Fields "TAKE A KID FISHING"
